Activities to keep you warm in Wales this winter!

Just because the temperature has fallen doesn’t mean that you should. North Wales offers a range of activities that are available to do – if not better done – in the colder months. The stunning scenery, dramatic cliff edges and, of course, the great Mount Snowdon itself means the cold won’t be the only thing taking your breath away this winter. Why not book a wintery break in one of our North Wales caravan parks and embark upon an adventure of your own? Whether it’s a walk with a view or extreme mountain biking, this pick of activities is sure to have something for everyone  Climbing Snowdon Sir Edmund Hillary and co used Snowdon in the winter prior to Everest. This is telling of the level of adventure that awaits in the wild and unpredictable landscapes of North Wales. Winter provides the most challenging, spectacular and rewarding conditions to tackle the mountain. Beginners and experienced climbers alike can dare to take it on with expert guides from a range of operators to help you along the way. Learn how to correctly use crampons, ice-axes and weather permitting, ice-climb the face itself. Failing that, the views are spectacular regardless, and well worth the trip up. Mountain Biking Whether you class yourself as an experienced rider, an absolute beginner or somewhere in between, the terrain in North Wales guarantees a trail for everyone. The Coed Llandegla near Wrexham has trails specifically built for wet weather use, including hot showers and a cup of cocoa waiting for you at the end. Bike hire makes it easy for those holidaying in the area, or feel free to bring your own. More knowledgeable riders are invited to embark upon the Clywdian Hills for an unrivalled view of the diverse scenery North Wales has to offer.   Wintery Walks Avoid the crowds, and hit one of the many coast or in-land paths available to walking enthusiasts throughout the year. The sensational coastline can make for great spectatorship, so sit back and watch the waves as they batter the cliff edge. Layer up and enjoy a more sedate way to appreciate the beautiful landscape, relished more perhaps with the promise of a cosy pub lunch. Why not check out any of the fantastic indoor activities in the area sure to keep you warm, dry and entertained? North Wales is home to a vast range of culture, including an array of cinemas, theatres, museums and historical sites. For more adventurous visitors, don’t let the weather stop you! Climbing centres such as the newly built Beacon climbing centre in Caernarfon, provide the perfect opportunity to feed the adrenaline junkie within. Why not make some underwater friends at the Seaquarium, close to our Rhyl caravan park – this includes a fantastic opportunity to get up close and personal with their resident seals from the state-of-the-art exhibition gallery. Image credit: MarkWilmotD
