"One of the best ways to capture the breath-taking scenery of North Wales is to take two of the most unique and wonderful rail journeys in the world. From the comfort of your carriage, you will be in awe of the magnificence around you." Makala Thomas, Senior Product and Purchasing Executive Snowdonia While its 3,560 foot peak dominates the landscape, there is much more to Snowdonia National Park than Snowdown, the highest mountain in England and Wales. The 800 square miles of breathtaking scenery surrounding it in the national park make it the biggest and highest in Wales, while being protected since 1951 makes it the oldest. It boasts stunning natural scenery including lakes and waterfalls, charming villages and man-made wonders including vintage steam railways. If you thought reaching the summit would be beyond you, think again, the Snowdown Mountain Railway has been taking passengers to the summit station at Llanberis since 1896, when it was launched as an alternative to donkey trekking. There are more than 90 other peaks in the park bur it's not just elevation that Snowdonia can boast, the craggy mountains are fringed by forests and ribbons of rivers, streams and brooks, and home to Wales' highest major waterfall, Pistyll Rhaeadr and largest natural lake, Bala Lake. Such natural beauty also attracts a wealth of incredible wildlife. Prices from: Apr 8, 2019 Jul 15 Sep 23 4 nights 459 559 549 Wonders of North Wales - Celtic Royal Hotel Caernarfon.
