Do you want to visit a foreign country without spending a lot of hours
flying? Do you want to experience another culture without having to deal
with the challenge of a foreign language? Do you like to hike in wide
open area with magnificent views? Do you enjoy meeting like-minded
travelers? Do you enjoy the outdoors as well as history? If you answered
yes to ANY of these questions you should seriously consider joining us
on this adventure to Wales!! Snowdonia is a region in northwest Wales
concentrated around the mountains and glacial landforms of massive
Snowdonia National Park. The park's historic Snowdon Mountain Railway
climbs to the summit of Wale's highest mountain, Mount Snowdon, offering
views across the sea to Ireland. The park is also home to an extensive
network of trails, over 100 lakes and craggy peaks. Ever since Sir
Edmund Hilary trained in Snowdonia for his ultimate Everest climb the
area has become known as a paradise for adventurers and outdoor
enthusiasts. As part of the larger region of North Wales, Snowdonia is
close to a string of famous medieval castles including Conwy, perched
above an estuary, and Caernarfon, set along the River Seiont. Just
beyond Snowdonia's dramatic mountains lie the sandy beaches of the Ll
Peninsula and Welsh-speaking coastal towns. We will fly into Manchester
airport just north of Wales and spend our first night at a hotel near
the airport. The next morning we will be met at our hotel by a charter
bus and whisked away to start our Welsh adventure! En route we will have
a stop in Chester, a delightful UNESCO World Heritage site where a
private tour guide will show us around the historical area. Then it's
off to Wales and our base for the next six nights, the village of
Betws-y-Coed. This village is ideally suited for our exploration of the
northern half of Snowdonia National park as it is on all the major local
bus and rail routes and has a wide range of services. We will utilize
the Snowdonia Sherpa bus service to access most of our trail heads
during the week. This adventure will incorporate sightseeing, hiking,
culture and relaxation with fellow hikers; the ultimate Wales
experience! Cost $2548 plus airfare est $900-1000
