Walking Holidays in Snowdonia16th July 2015
It’s quite well accepted that within the UK, the country’s national parks offer many of the best walking, rambling and climbing opportunities – Snowdonia is no exception. Don’t forget that when you come to stay with us at Barmouth Bay, you are set within the stunningly beautiful Snowdonia National Park, and have access to dozens, if not hundreds, of walking trails suitable for all ages and fitness levels. Yes, it’s true that you certainly don’t have to be a fitness fanatic in order to enjoy the best of the area’s natural and scenic beauty.
Because there are so many hundreds of Snowdonia walking routes to choose from, we have selected two that cater to people on opposite sides of the spectrum. They are the Snowdon trail and the Barmouth Panorama Walk.
The fact is that there are many ways to walk up Snowdon, and some of the routes could also be described as “easy”. It should be noted, however, that when you walk up Snowdon, you are assailing the tallest peak in both England and Wales, and therefore a walk to the summit should not be undertaken lightly. The above link will show many of the options available to walkers, but those out there who are desperate to experience the summit of the great Welsh mountain but are without the physical wherewithal do have the option of the Mountain Railway.
This gentle and scenic walk has been enjoyed by visitors since Victorian times. At its peak, the area included a tearoom, and even charged for admission! These features are long gone now, and some of that area has already been reclaimed by the native forest. One of the best features of this walk is the flexibility it offers walkers, with those looking for the shortest, gentlest experience able to stay around the small original area of the Panorama. Those with more energy can extend their walk, heading up to the hilltops to enjoy breathtaking views of the estuary, the Barmouth Bridge, and Cadair Idris.
From your fantastic accommodation on our park at Barmouth Bay, you can enjoy many walks, both locally like the Panorama, and further afield like the ascent to Snowdon. Don’t forget that a nice walking holiday can include a stroll around the historic town of Barmouth itself, in particular its Old Town. Not all hikes have to be done in the wild and unfettered realms of nature.
