.: The Mountains
Whatever else there is to see in Snowdonia, its mountains are its premier attraction. Central to all of these is the majestic peak of Snowdon itself, the highest mountain in Wales. One of our guides is a trained geologist and can unravel the mysteries of the rocks and how they have shaped the landscape. Another is a qualified mountain leader and whatever your experience or ability can lead you on a tour of the mountains ranging from a leisurely afternoon stroll to the spectacular waterfall at Aber to a full days mountain walking.
For the less adventurous, a driven tour through the mountains is a must. Crashing waterfalls tumble through leafy valleys as a vista of overwhelming beauty unfolds. Discovering on the way the legend of Gelerts faithful hound!
Scattered throughout the mountains are evidence of the ancient people: stone circles, ancient churches and the scattered remains of long gone communities.
.: Industrial History
For such a seemingly remote place, Snowdonia has had its fair share of industry. Even the great mountain of Snowdon itself has a major mine complex tunneled into its heart. Everywhere there are disused slate and copper workings, old water mills and abandoned miners villages.
Our guides can accompany you on your journey of discovery, telling you the stories of the courage and harsh life of the miners and the dreams of the mine owners. We can even arrange underground visits to some of the historic mines in the area (such as Llechwedd slate mine, right) to experience for real the world of the miners.
One of our guides is a specialist in industrial and mining history, If this is your area of interest we can tailor-make special tours of the major sites of the area Just ask for details.
