4 beautiful walks to enjoy in North Wales

After a long week at work and a busy school term, a holiday is always welcomed and sometimes overdue. It gives you the opportunity to spend quality time with your family, relaxing and doing all the things you love. Nothing beats a long, slow stroll somewhere beautiful. Time away, in a new place, offers the perfect opportunity to get out, stretch your legs, burn some energy and be within nature with your loved ones. Here is our favourite pick of stunning walks in North Wales which you could try while you’re here. Wales coastal path North Wales Coastal PathThe coastal walk from Bangor to Prestatyn covers around 60 miles, we know this would probably take you more than your week’s holiday but it is still worth mentioning as there are plenty of shorter walks which can be enjoyed over a couple of hours or most of the day, depending on how far you feel like going. The path passes through idyllic coastal towns and villages such as Colwyn Bay, Towyn and Rhyl which all provide the perfect place for a quick cup of coffee or a bite of lunch on your way. The direction you should head is well sign posted and indicates clearly where you need to go. There are regular buses and taxis available to take you back to your starting point, so need to worry about finding your way back. The route hugs the cliff edge and follows the coast, providing stunning views of the interesting rock formations, ocean and sands. Keep an eye out for puffins and seals, as they are known to be regularly spotted in the area. Llyn BrenigThe Llyn Brenig is a very large lake in North Wales; it is an approximate ten-mile circular walk all the way around although there are other routes you can take, walking maps are available at the visitor centre on site. The lake is surrounded by moorland, and on a clear day, views of Berwyn and Snowdonia can be enjoyed. It is also a popular spot for fishing, cycling and lunches. The large, light and airy café offers a great range of delicious foods for hungry walkers. The lake is also the perfect spot for a picnic if you prefer, with plenty of breath-taking scenery around, you can relish the outdoors while you have a bite to eat. There are often deer, otters and buzzards in the area – be sure to tell us if you spot any while you are there. Offa’s Dyke PathThe 177-mile-long path follows the border shared between England and Wales, running from Chepstow all the way to Prestatyn, passing through a total of eight different counties. The whole route may seem far too long for you, but it can easily be split into accessible and shorter walks and the natural beauty you see, will be no less. There are great transport links, which will enable you to return to your starting point. The path takes you through ancient woodlands, along rivers and through dramatic and deep valleys. Even if it is a fresh day, the sweeping views are worth getting out into the great outdoors, and the walk will quickly warm you. Great Orme Nature TailThere is an option of three walks from the Llandudno promenade to Little Orme, all offering great views of Anglesey and the below town. Each walk is very well signposted and under 5 miles, you could take the walk to the summit or the shorter, more leisurely walk around – why not have an explore and see where your legs take you? The promenade is a wonderful place to spend a view hours, with traditional Victorian houses behind you and the sea in front, take some time to watch the world go by. There is a great range of outdoor activities for all the family in North Wales, but there is something special about walking through and amongst a beautiful place that recharges you like nothing else.
