We will visit Chester Zoo on the way to Conwy, where we will stay in a youth hostel. Conwy has a beautiful Castle. If you do not want to walk to the top of Mount Snowdon you can take a train to the top (but it’s expensive and might be difficult to get tickets). There is also a beautiful lake in Llanberis, at the foot of Mount Snowdon. If you do not want to go up the mountain, you can explore the lake. On the final day ( Sunday) we will visit Bodnant Gardens- an amazing and tranquil place full of exotic trees, flowers and plants.
The beginning of the walk to the top of Mount Snowdon on the Pyg Track. If the weather is good this is the track we will take. It’s about a 3 hour walk at a leisurely pace, with stops for photos and sandwiches en route.
The path is rocky, but not too difficult. You need to have a good pair of walking shoes, like the students here!
Arriving at a point about 500 metres from the top you are greeted by an amazing view of Snodonia National Park. It gets windy up here and you will be tired, but the views are fantastic!
The Walk to to the top of Mount Snowdon along the Pyg track is a beautiful 3 hour hike.
