Day 1

Home pick up. We take an afternoon ride on the Llangollen Railway, a standard gauge heritage steam railway travelling through beautiful countryside to Corwen. Arrive early evening in Caernarfon.

Day 2

Welsh Highland Railway. We take a ride on the Welsh Highland Railway along the recently opened section from Caernarfon all the way to Porthmadog. This steam train ride is truly unforgettable, as the track winds its way ‘coast to coast’ through beautiful Snowdonian scenery. Twisting and turning to Beddgelert, the train then travels through the picturesque Pass of Aberglaslyn to the sea at Porthmadog.

Day 3

Snowdon Mountain Railway. A truly unforgettable day, travelling on the Snowdon Mountain Railway. At 3560 feet, Snowdon is the ‘Rooftop of Wales’, with awe-inspiring views in every direction. We begin our journey at Llanberis Station and the train climbs steeply through ancient forests, past a glistening waterfall and over two viaducts, before the ascent to the craggy summit. The Summit Visitor Centre opened in 2009 and is a wonderful landmark building with refreshments and stunning views.

Day 4

Homeward journey. We travel to Llanuwchllyn for a return ride on the pleasant narrow-gauge Bala Lake Railway. With a backdrop of the mountains of Snowdonia and Bala Lake, this is a relaxing end to an exciting holiday.
