Snowdonia National Park
The Snowdonia National Park boasts vast areas of natural beauty and unique scenery. Covering 838 square miles it is one of the three natural parks found in Wales and the oldest one being designated as one in 1951. The area of the Snowdonia National Park has so much to offer to visitors that if you are visiting it for the first time you will wonder why it took you so long to do it. Both the scenery and the activities that can be done here are so diverse that anyone will find something to suit their taste.
Greenwood Forest Park
This forest park won many awards for its eco mindset, but that is not the main reason you should visit it. There are lots of fun activities that one can partake in here including the Barefoot Trail, the Crocodile Maze or the Green Dragon, the first eco-friendly people-powered rollercoaster in the world.
King Arthur’s Labyrinth, Corris
Located inside the mountains of Snowdonia, King Arthur’s Labyrinth is a unique cave. You will stroll inside it on a boat and a sound and light show will bring history to life. You will travel through time and pass a magical underground waterfall after which life during the reign of King Arthur will unfold in front of your eyes.
But underground is just half of the story. Once you are up on the surface you will find yourself inside the Corris Craft Centre, a lovely craft market where you can have a go making your own crafts.
Fairbourne Miniature Railway
The smallest narrow-gauge railway in Wales connects the village of Fairbourne to the Barmouth Ferry railway station. The 2 miles long railway is very scenic as one can admire the Mawddach estuary and the mountains. The line is narrow gauge (15 inch or 381 mm) since 1916.
