Walking & Hiking Routes in North Wales
North Wales was made for walking and hiking! Mountains, coast, town and country - we have it all.
Long-distance paths often follow old drovers' routes, historic tracks or pilgrims' travels. Coastal trails now make up the epic All-Wales Coast Path. Scenery, history and good times are guaranteed wherever you wander.
Even before Sir Edmund Hilary and Sherpa Tensing trained here for their historic ascent of Everest, Snowdonia has been a magnet for hillwalkers and dreamers. Snowdon itself has six main routes to the 3,560ft summit, each with its own character and challenges. There are low-level walks too. One around the village of Beddgelert takes in steam trains, rivers, disused mine workings and a small lake.
North East Wales has gentler walking. The Clwydian Range of hills is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the beginning (or end) of Offa's Dyke long distance path. The Berwyn Mountains and the rolling hills around Llangollen make great walking and hiking country too.
Coastal walks start in Deeside and end in...well, they don't end! From the River Dee in the North East to the Mawddach Estuary in Cardigan Bay and beyond, there's always a walk by the sea. Anglesey's 125-mile coast packs in cliffs, sandy bays, ancient and industrial heritage and more than 100 shipwrecks. Its variety is unrivaled. Walking North Wales along the north coast features surfaced paths for easy walking (and cycling) between our most popular resorts.
