FFESTINIOG RAILWAY (FULL DAY): Located on the Glaslyn Estuary, Porthmadog is a busy harbour town rich in maritime history and a major hub for narrow-gauge railways with no less than three lines! Today, we have included a journey on the Ffestiniog Railway, the oldest independent railway company in the world, established in 1832. The historic train climbs over 700 feet from sea level into the mountains through tranquil pastures and magnificent forests, past lakes, and waterfalls.


(FREE DAY) - Developed as an upmarket seaside holiday town for its Edwardian and Victorian visitors, Llandudno is now Wales' largest resort, uniquely situated between the Great and Little Ormes, it's home to a magnificent promenade, tearooms, and shops.


RAILWAY & LLANBERIS LAKE RAILWAY (FULL DAY) - Enjoy a return journey on the Snowdon Mountain Railway to the rooftop of Wales (weather permitting), you'll be rewarded with some fantastic views. At 1,085ft, Mount Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales! We have also arranged a ride on the nearby Llanberis Lake Railway, a narrow-gauge railway which follows the stunning lake shores.


TRAMWAY (HALF DAY) - Opening in 1902, the Great Orme Tramway is Britain's only cable-hauled public road tramway. This unique journey starts in Llandudno and climbs a mile through a country park and nature reserve before reaching the spectacular summit, where you have unimpeded views over the bay below.
