Join me for a week (or two) of walking the coast path in Anglesey, scrambling around the rocks and boulders of Snowdonia National Park, and exploring the castles of north Wales, while meeting local people and learning more about the culture and history of Wales.
Sample Itinerary (1 week):
Day 1: Fly into Dublin, take the ferry from Dublin to Holyhead (www.ferrysavers.co.uk) where we will be met by our tour guide, a native of Anglesey, who will take us around the island a bit, then to our hotel, where we will acclimatise.
Day 2: After an early breakfast, we will meet our guide, who will take us around Ynys Mon (Anglesey) and give us an overview of the history of the island. Options include Rhosneigr beach, Plas Newydd country house and gardens, Plas Cadnant hidden gardens, South Stack lighthouse, Ynys Llanddwyn, and more.
Day 3: After an early breakfast, we will walk the coast path to enjoy one of Anglesey’s gorgeous beaches. Sea-kayaking is an option.
Day 4: We will head to some of the local castles—-truly an embarrassment of choices, including Caernarfon, Conwy, Beaumaris—-as well as explore the towns.
Day 5: Continuing to explore Anglesey, we will delve deeper into the nature and history of this beautiful island, called the Mother of Wales. We can also head to Snowdonia National Park this day.
Day 6: We’ll continue to discover nature as we explore Snowdonia National Park, walking several of the mountain walks. Packed lunches are an option.
Day 7: Heading back to Dublin, we’ll take the ferry again after crossing Anglesey once more.
