North Wales and Snowdonia National Park
The hills and mountains of North Wales and the Snowdonia National Park continue to surprise us every time we visit for a short break or weekend.
gr8trails offers a broad variety of outdoor activities for all abilities. From purpose built mountain bike trails at Llandegla, Betws-y-coed and the original Coed-y-Brenin, to walking the flanks and summits of the Snowdonia range. North Wales truly offers an adventure for everyone.
Whether you enjoy leisurely low level, valley floor or high level ridge walking, technical bike trails or rides for all the family, with our guided tours you will not go home disappointed.
Walking in Wales
Reaching the summit of Snowdon can be simply awe inspiring, giving you life long memories. gr8trails can guide you to the top via several walking routes. From Llanberis up the easy tourist path, or from Pen-y-Pass via the East and West Peaks to the summit and back down via Crib Goch ridge, or up the Watkin path on the south side of this impressive mountain. It will be a short break or weekend to enjoy, stimulate your senses and take in the breathtaking scenery.
Mountain biking in Wales
The gr8trails team has been biking at all the North Wales purpose built mountain bike centres over the past 15 years on various short breaks and weekends away. We have seen mountain biking as an activity develop and grow. Our mission is to make all this adventure accessible for everyone to enjoy.
We started as raw recruits when the original Coed-y-Brenin first opened, riding the 'Red Bull' and 'Karrimor' trails, in all types of weather! When we return to 'Cody' now for a short break or weekend, it has a new purpose-built visitor centre, catering for all levels of biker and walker. Trails have now been built at Nant-yr-Arin (where you can see huge Red Kites soaring above), Betws-y-Coed, Penmachno and Llandegla.
If you are a keen mountain biker and would like to try something different, we offer a 'Snowdon Summit Challenge' A bike ride up Snowdon to watch the sunset across the Irish Sea. This is a challenging adventure for an intermediate/advanced mountain biker.
We never leave these venues without a new found confidence and big grins on the faces of all participants. We are sure you will feel the same!
