If you’re a mountain biker you’ll have heard of Coed y Brenin. Modern mountain biking in Britain was born in these Woods north of Dolgellau when a band of enthusiasts created the first purpose-built single tracks. From little acorns...the range and scope of CyB’s mountain biking network is now enormous, with everything from family trails to the ‘exhilarating, skill-stretching’ Beast of Brenin. Or for the hardcore routes why not visit Antur Stiniog, Blaenau Ffestiniog!
Zip World Velocity at Bethesda attracted worldwide publicity when it opened in 2013. No wonder. It’s the longest zip line in Europe and fastest in the world – and a ‘Best Days Out’ winner in the 2015 Wales National Tourism Awards. But don’t stop there, there’s also the option of Zip Titan, the first 4 person zip, and Zip Caverns – the world’s largest fully underground zip line - in Blaenau Ffestiniog. Which one will you like best?
He may have been an English invader, but Edward I left a legacy that’s now famous worldwide. This great medieval Castle-builder’s Welsh fortresses, extraordinarily ambitious and expensive for their time, are so iconic that they are now UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Castles at Caernarfon, Conwy and Harlech are stunning examples of Edward’s work. And bringing things bang up to date, Harlech’s new state-of-the-art visitor Centre and stunning ‘floating bridge’ give a fresh perspective on this ancient site.
