Rated as the most scenic village in the Snowdonia, where there is a beautiful riverside walk to enjoy and you can learn about the local legend of the village’s famous dog. You might like to consider stopping by one of the tea rooms/cafes or pubs for refreshments and a light bite to eat.

Mount Snowdon
We stop on an elevated platform to view the highest Mountain in England and Wales at 3, 560 feet above sea level. The landscape of mountain and glacial valleys is a photographer’s paradise.

The Slate Museum

Dolbadarn Castle
A castle ruin of the Welsh Princes located in a stunning scenic setting between two lakes and our ‘hidden gem’ a scenic lagoon at the local abandoned quarry.

The Secret View
Our last stop of the tour is at a beautiful lakeside setting. We call it the secret view as its out of sight to everyone passing along the two main roads nearby, yet we open up an amazing vista of a glacial lake and the Snowdonia Mountains.
