At a Glance

Enchanting Wales. It summons up King Arthur and Camelot, waterfalls and crag cliffs, grazing sheep and majestic castles. With your grandchild, experience Wales’ lore and lure on an active educational adventure that will leave you breathless — literally, at times — discovering the Welsh landscape. Raft on white water, kayak an Ice Age lake, zip-line through Snowdonia National Park’s oak and beech trees, and hike to a high mountain summit to spot Ireland in one direction and Scotland in the other. Your upscale base in this majestic setting is the lovely mountain village of Betws-y-Coed (bet-us-a-koyd).
Activity Level
Outdoor: Spirited
Walking 2-3 miles over varied terrain. Kayaking, whitewater rafting, climbing in treetop adventure course. Elevations up to 3,500 feet.

Best of all, you'll ...

  • Before setting off in a kayak in Llyn Tegid, hear folk lore of how the four-mile lake was magically formed to cast away a dissolute prince.
  • Be securely strapped in to soar through the Snowdonia National Park treetops, test your dexterity on a river walk and feel the misty spray while rafting in white water.
  • On easy walks, marvel at standing stones perched like sentries on Holy Island, and after a hike to mount Snowdon’s summit, see all the way to Ireland and Scotland on a clear day.
