Description
Breathtaking peaks, spectacular lakes, rich history and heritage and a vibrant and unique culture. Every year, Snowdonia National Park's astonishing landscapes attract millions of visitors. This favourite Crusader tour stays in attractive Llanberis and includes a ride on Britain's only rack and pinion railway, the epic Snowdon Mountain Railway!

Departure points to suit you...
Crusader Holidays uses an interchange system, taking place at either Beaconsfield Services (M40), South Mimms Services (M25/A1M) or Thurrock Services (M25).

Here you may have to change to your holiday coach and we are renowned for ensuring that this is smooth and efficient.

The holiday coaches typically depart from Beaconsfield Services at 11.15, Thurrock Services at around 09.30 and South Mimms Services at 10.30. Some customers find it more convenient to join direct at the interchange, please let is know when booking if this is the case.

*Due to increased operational costs, from Monday 16th October 2023 Dover, Folkestone, Canterbury & Ashford joining points will be subject to a £25.00 per person supplement on all 2024 UK Tours.

NOTE: Pick up points are a guide so please refer to your holiday confirmation for specific locations as details are subject to change.

INCLUDED EXCURSIONS

Caernarfon & Ffestiniog Railway
Caernarfon has an air historic charm about it especially around Palace St, Castle Sq and Hole in the Wall St. Within the cobbled lanes of the old walled town are some fine Georgian buildings and an interesting waterfront. The magnificent Caernarfon Castle has undergone a large scale conservation project which will include a new accessible viewing platform via a glass lift and a new cafe. It is open daily 10.00 - 16.00 with entrance approx. £11 pp in 2022. Then head to Porthmadog on the coast where you will join one of the unique steam-hauled trains which run along 13 miles from Porthmadog to Blaenau Ffestiniog in the mountains (fare included). Your coach awaits you when you disembark to drive you back to Llanberis. (NB exact routing of the day may change subject to final train schedule)

Snowdon Mountain Railway
The Snowdon Mountain Railway, Britain's only rack and pinion railway starts from Llanberis. This epic journey has been experienced by some 12 million travellers since 1896 who come to enjoy the spectacular panoramic views. PLEASE NOTE that at Easter a diesel service operates up to Clogwyn Station which is 3/4 of the way up the mountain. The summit is not due to re-open until May 2023. Clogwyn Station is located on an exposed ridge, overlooking Llanberis Pass and Clogwyn Du'r Arddu cliffs. Nearby lies a group of huge boulders that once tumbled from cliffs above and are rumoured to be the home of a witch named Canthrig Bwt who would try to catch children climbing on the rocks.

Day 4 - After a hearty Welsh breakfast, all aboard for the journey back to your home towns.
