Walking Guide Service



Situated on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park, the Conwy Valley offers endless opportunities for walking and climbing holidays all year round. Snowdonia is one of Britain's great national parks and a national treasure. It stretches from Conwy to Aberdyfi and is some 25 miles wide and unlike many other national parks it is rarely crowded. As well as lakes and rivers such as Geirionydd and Crafnant, there are cliff top tracks and Roman roads which cross the mountains. Snowdonia actually embraces 15 peaks over 3,000 feet high, so there is no shortage of challenging climbs for the mountaineer or hill walker. The National Mountain Centre at Capel Curig offers a wide range of courses. Betws-y-Coed is the charming, if bustling 'Gateway to Snowdonia' where you can buy everything you need to tackle the mountains.
As well as the classic routes tackled by the serious walkers, there are many, easy waymarked walks and forest trails suitable for all the family. Enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the area, visit a nature reserve or follow one of the many historic trails.
