Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: On day one we will leave Dublin North Wall on board the Ulysses bound for Holyhead. Our base will be in the lively town of Colwyn Bay.

Day 2: On the first walking day we will tackle the highest mount in Wales: Snowdon. Via the Pyg Track, an old mining trail, we will reach the summit at 1085 meters. On our descent you will enjoy the spectacular panoramic views of the Welsh mountains, finishing in the beautiful town of Llanberis. Distance: 11.5km, Height Gain: 735m.

Day 3: On our next day we will do a circular walk starting in the small village of Capel Curig, set in the heart of the National Park. This walk takes us through a mixture of forests, valleys, lakes and wide-open mountainsides with awe-inspiring views. We will finish off the day with a pint of our favorite brew in the village! Distance: 16.5km, Height Gain: 580m.

Day 4: On our final day you have the choice to either go shopping in the town, or take a short relaxing trip with us to the Great Orme. While we are there we will visit the old Copper Mine, which dates back over 4000 years and is the world's largest Prehistoric Mine. We will be departing Colwyn Bay early in the afternoon to catch our ferry back to Dublin.
