But North Wales is much more than just mountains: it's about outstanding coastal scenery, about seaside fun and frolicking, history, heritage, architecture, music and culture.
They keep a welcome in the hillsides, here, and the word you are looking for is 'Croeso'. Yes, in Wales people speak Welsh, reflecting a deep-rooted and passionate culture that has spanned the centuries and survives to this day.

Wales Trails is not a tool for detailed trip planning - it's designed to help you consider car-free options for a day trip or longer stay.
Explore Wales using a combination of train, bicycle or on foot. You may decide to travel by train to a selected point, then walk a section of the beautiful Wales Coast Path or jump on a bike to follow part of a cycle trail before heading back home on a train.
We feature three scenic rail trails - Cambrian Coast Railway, Conwy Valley Railway, and Heart of Wales Railway - which travel through breathtaking Welsh landscapes.
For cyclists, we have four National Cycle Network trails - Lon Cambria & Lon Teifi, Lon Las Cymru North and Celtic Trail - that offer a fantastic mixture of traffic-free rides and challenging adventures. If you prefer to explore on foot, we have three long distance walking trails: Glyndwr's Way National Trail, Offa's Dyke Path and Wales Coast Path.
The app is very easy to use with Trail, Map and Directions icons. Each Trail features numbered hubs or 'Waymarkers', which provide lots of useful visitor information about things to do and points of interest within easy reach.
The app contains:
- A map showing each of the key points on the trails
- Pictures and descriptions of the featured places on the trails
- Detailed information about additional places to visit
- Up to date details on local services and things to do
