The mountains of North Wales are a landscape that inspire both awe and legend.
Take a trip into Snowdonia with a private tour guide to explore the beautiful and unspoiled National Park that surrounds the mighty Mount Snowdon.
Your local private guide will take you on a spectacular scenic tour, showing you castles and forts, telling the stories of traditional hill farming and the slate quarries that have shaped this rural landscape.
Drive through the imposing Nant Ffrancon pass to the clear waters of the Snowdonia lakes. See the delightful Welsh-speaking town of Llanberis, admire the view across the Menai Straits and hear the stories behind the medieval fortress that is Caernarfon Castle, one of the largest and most imposing 13th century castles in Britain.
Snowdonia’s mountains, lakes, woodlands, and valleys are only part of the story. This area in North West Wales has a rich and ancient history, from Stone Age burial chambers to Roman forts, Celtic druids and bards, churches, castles, and industrial heritage in slate quarries and mining communities.
On our private guided tour of Snowdonia you will discover an area steeped in legend: according to legend King Vortigern wanted to build a castle on top of Dinas Emrys, but every night his castle walls would fall down. Merlin (the wizard) claimed there were two dragons fighting beneath the hill that caused the walls to fall. How did they solve it? You’ll hear in your tour!
