The view across Llynau Mymbyr to Snowdon on a beautiful still Autumn day.

‘Drink’ in the scenery and join us on our popular walking holiday in North Wales. Our new walks over the weekend explore dunes and islands, history, valleys as well as ancient monuments, more than a taster of the Welsh countryside. Grade: Easy to Medium

Snowdonia & Anglesey

Based in the coastal town of Caernarfon near to the picturesque Menai Strait, our historic hotel is just a 15 minute drive to Snowdonia National Park.

Anglesey & Llanddwyn

Our walk today takes us across the Menai Suspension Bridge on to the Island of Anglesey. Walking over the vast dunes of Newborough National Nature Reserve and onto the magnificent beach. Take in some of the best views of the Snowdonia range and out across Caernarfon Bay. We continue on to the tiny island of Llanddwyn where celtic crosses, 13th century ruins and picturesque cottages are a photographers dream. Our return this afternoon takes us through forest so keep a look out for the elusive red squirrel.

Snowdonia National Park

We set off from the mountain village of Capel Curig through pockets of sessile oak woodland onto the open moorland . The views on a clear day of the Snowdon Horseshoe are magnificent. A slow, but easy ascent along this ancient path brings us to the top of the pass looking down into the Crafnant valley and the shimmering LLyn Crafnant. Our descent to the Conwy valley takes us past the long since closed lead workings, heathery hill tops and historic monuments to legendary figures. Time permitting, we will make a visit to the medieval church, where Llywelyn the Great, Prince of Wales, worshipped in the 13th Century.

Useful Information

Location & Transport
The hotel can be found off Junction 10 of the A55. Complimentary car parking is available. Bangor station is approximately 9 miles away.

Walking programme
Two full day guided walks are included in the programme. The walking programme is graded easy to medium and you can expect to walk up to 12km on each walk. A coach will be used to transfer you to the starting/finishing points of the included walks.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are fit and well enough to take part in your chosen activity holiday. If you are unsure as to whether the walks are within your capabilities, please contact the office to discuss this matter, thus making sure you appreciate the terrain that you will be walking.

You could be walking across uneven ground in some areas and extreme care must be taken, especially if wet. If used to using a pole/stick, it is advisable to bring it. Please appreciate the route and content of the holiday may change at the time and at the discretion of the guide/organiser, should conditions require. Solo’s Holidays Ltd cannot be held responsible for personal injury, accident or damage to property whilst on these walks other than incidents arising out of the company’s negligence. The guide has the right to refuse to guide a walk with anyone not properly attired.

What to Wear
It is of paramount importance that you have the correct footwear. It is essential to wear walking boots that are comfortable and preferably lightweight, with some ankle support and a good grip. If you already have a pair of boots that you are happy walking in (including during hot/wet weather and on hard ground), then bring these along. However, if you are bringing new footwear, do make sure they are well broken in before you arrive. Experience has shown that wearing 2 pairs of woollen socks adds to comfort.

Whilst we would hope for good weather during your holiday, it is of course impossible to guarantee this. We would therefore recommend you travel with clothing suitable for all conditions, and suggest you use the following checklist as a guideline of what to take:

  • Walking boots with good ankle support
  • Waterproofs – jacket and trousers
  • Walking poles – recommended as they provide good support for the knees, particularly on downhill sections of walks and when conditions are wet/slippery
  • Lightweight trousers and shorts with pockets
  • Shirts or t-shirts for walking in
  • Walking socks – several pairs
  • Lightweight fleece or jumper
  • Hat & gloves
  • Daysack/rucksack for walking
  • Umbrella – it can be used also for protection from the sun as well as rain
  • Lightweight drinking bottle to carry water whilst walking
  • Small first aid kit – plasters, insect repellant, etc
  • Good, high factor sunscreen, sunhat and sunglasses

Gratuities
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below. The Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection at the beginning of your holiday to cover drivers, guides, porters and hotel staff (including restaurant, kitchen and reception staff) of approximately £8. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of bar staff and housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (the rounding up of the drinks bill and a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, restaurants expect a 10% gratuity (do check that service has not already been added to your bill). For taxis 10% of the metered fare.
