What? A day of exploring epic, historic landscapes — from the towering battlements of a medieval castle to the ancient peak of Mount Snowdon

Where? Gwynedd

Cadw site to see: Harlech Castle

Most ‘Instagrammable’ spot: the castle battlements — which offer sky-high photography opportunities galore with spectacular 360° views of the castle and the surrounding area. Sat atop a rocky outcrop, Harlech Castle offers breath-taking panoramic views from the coast to the Irish sea.

Built to defend against mighty medieval attacks, the cliff-side battlements aren’t for the faint hearted, but if you thrive off adrenaline then this mighty fortress might quickly become your favourite.

And, the thrill of being sky-high doesn’t have to stop there…

Set up your base at the unique Harlech Apartments, put on your walking boots and take a 45 minute drive to the highest mountain in Wales — Snowdon.

Located at the heart of Snowdonia National Park, the summit boasts unforgettable views of Snowdonia, Anglesey, Pembrokeshire and even Ireland — definitely not a photo opportunity to miss. Choose from 6 different paths to conquer the 3,560ft giant before collapsing back into the comfort of your luxury apartment for some well-deserved R&R.

Or, if you’d prefer more of a steady stroll and a delicious thin-crusted pizza, head towards the nearby Italianate village of Portmeirion to enjoy more iconic architecture and beautifully scenic surroundings.
