Some of the activities available in North Wales

If you crave a little excitement then this is the place to be. North Wales is officially The ‘Adventure Capital of Europe’.

Long-abandoned slate mines, disused quarries, old industrial estates and airfields – they have been reconstructed and re-imagined as a 21st century industry. A world-first inland surf lagoon (just a few miles down the road), the fastest zip line in the world and the biggest zip zone in Europe, giant underground trampolines and mountain go kart rally tracks – they are at the vanguard of what is currently the fastest growing tourism sector in the Europe: outdoor adventure.

Castles and historic places

Discover some of the worlds best preserved castles by exploring their ramparts, turrets and dungeons filled with centuries of history. For those wanting to go further back in time there are awe-inspiring Iron Age hill-forts.

Conwy Castle’s dark, brooding presence is no accident. When King Edward I built Conwy Castle in the late 13th century it was intended to dominate and intimidate – and it’s still doing its job, competing with Snowdonia’s rugged skyline and winning the battle for our attention

Nature and wildlife

The Conwy Valley and Betws y Coed is a protected ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ and we have lots of stunning lakes, rivers, forests and mountains which are full of rare birds, aquatic mammals, wild goats and over 870 miles of stunning walks across the Irish Sea. There is such a rich diversity of birdlife, plants and animals, look out for rare red squirrels or black grouse..

For birdwatchers we have an abundance of different types of birds from birds of prey to lots of sea birds down at the local RSPB’s Conwy Reserve. Over 200 species have been spotted here, and with its popular programme of events, guided walks and child-friendly facilities...

Beaches and coastline

We are around 13 miles from the coastal lines of Llandudno and Colwyn Bay beaches and bays as well as rocky peaks, hills and forests. We’re home to 200 miles of coast and more than 45 beaches, as well as one of the most spectacular stretches of the pioneering Wales Coast Path, a world’s first.
