Over-looked by the Moel y Gest, along the Afon Glaslyn estuary, Porthmadog, affectionately referred to as "Port", is a coastal town which originally developed as a booming slate export port. Today, the town is a popular tourist destination with a rich heritage and proud Welsh culture. This lovely little town with its friendly residents and charming shops, is the perfect base from which to explore the natural wonders of Snowdonia. While the town itself is teaming with bird-life at the estuary and features spectacular views all around, Snodonia National Park is just a short distance away and easily accessible to the nature lovers who flock here. If you're looking for a more relaxed venture in to the town's natural surroundings then hop on to one of the steam powered trains at Ffestiniog or Welsh Highland Railway stations and explore Snowdonia with the soothing chug-chug of the train to keep you company.

Snowdonia National Park

In 1951, Snowdonia was established as Wales' first national park and remains one of the region's most-visited nature reserves. The park takes its name from Snowdon, Wales' tallest mountain, scaling a height of 1,085 meters (3,560 feet). It is the centerpiece of the national park and a favored spot for hiking expeditions. The highlands, called Eryri by the locals, span nine mountain chains that cover nearly 52 percent of the total area of this national park. Home to over 26,000 people, much of Snowdonia's sprawling expanse of 2,130 square kilometers (823 square miles) is given over to agriculture and farming. Amid the rural landscape and undulating massifs of Snowdonia, lies a vivid collage of forests, rivers, valleys and lakes. To the west, the park is edged in by a spectacular coastline trimmed with sandy beaches while at its heart lies Wales' largest natural lake. A landscape of contrasts where forests, farms and beaches go hand in hand, Snowdonia holds the esteemed title of one of the UK's most popular national parks.

Conwy Castle

Few castles in the world capture the imagination as immediately as this imposing fortress, perhaps among the finest built by King Edward I in the 13th Century. From its rocky promontory the castle commands breathtaking views over the medieval town and its estuary harbor, with Telford's famous bridge in the foreground and the Snowdonia mountains as a spectacular backdrop. Edward was himself besieged here in 1295, and it was from refuge at Conwy in 1399 that King Richard II was lured, to be deposed by the Duke of Lancaster (later, Henry IV.) Most of the massive edifice, built by 1,500 craftsmen in under five years, is accessible.
