Fantastic walks in North Wales to complete in 2017

North Wales is undeniably one of the most beautiful areas of the UK. The diverse landscapes, mighty mountain ranges and stunning scenery means that it must be quite high up many bucket lists for 2017. It was recently named the adventure capital of Europe, only furthering its popularity for people looking to try something new on holiday. The New Year brings an array of resolutions to get outside more, get active and maybe even climb a mountain, and there’s many ways a holiday to our North Wales caravan parks can help you achieve your goals. Here are some of our favourite walks for you to check out in the New Year, that can also contribute to your reaching your targets in 2017:   Isle of Anglesey Coast 95% of the isle is considered an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so it’s no surprise that it’s top of our list for walking in 2017. Going for a walk in Anglesey combines the senses as you see, hear, feel and smell as you make your way round the fascinating isle. On any one journey, you can discover towering cliffs, charming woodlands, sandy beaches, mighty mountains and marshy grasslands. The coast path is 125 miles long and winds its way round the edge of the island. Strong legs are required, both for walking and for heights, as the path climbs over 4000m during its journey. Keep your eyes peeled for a couple of cheeky seals playing in the waves below. Montgomery Canal We suggest walking from the junction between Llangollen Canal to Newton. This route includes stretches of the magnificent Severn Valley. This walk allows for a fairly even terrain and includes a stop off at one of the prettiest villages in Wales. Berriew is incredibly picturesque, with black and white cottages lining the roads, a majestic church and the river Rhiw flowing right through the heart of it. Be on the look out for otters along riverfronts – they have been spotted in the area! Mynydd Hiraethog Footpath The Mynydd Hiraethod and Denbigh Moors Footpath Network encompasses a 40 mile route, with six shorter walks within the circuit that can be completed individually. Your journey will take you through public footpaths, quiet lanes and country roads that will allow you to appreciate the breath-taking landscapes of the largely unspoilt region. There are various family-friendly trails near Llen Brinig and the visitor centre provides the perfect place to start your journey and end with a well-deserved coffee and cake! North Wales Path The North Wales Path stretches out over 60 miles and takes you along the coast from Bangor to Prestatyn via public footpaths. There’ll be some fantastic picnic spots along the way, and you’ll probably find a few secret coves that you can have all to yourselves. The path offers some unrivalled views of the Snowdon range, the best being from Little Ormes Head or Conwy Castle, so be sure to get a few snaps along the way! The ‘Edge of Wales’ walk This relatively new coastal path follows pilgrim’s routes to Bardsey Island. Experience phenomenal views across the region as you tackle the path in small chunks or from end to end.  There is plenty to see on the way round in terms of breath-taking scenery, and keep an eye open for a wide range of wildlife including seals, sea birds and dolphins. Make 2017 the year you stick to your resolutions and check out any of these fantastic walks in North Wales. Whether you want to get outside more, get back to nature or be more active, a holiday to North Wales has something for everyone, and these fantastic walks are a great way to start the year!
