The unquestioned action capital of the country, Gwynedd in northwest Wales is home to most of Snowdonia National Park and is a prime spot for those looking for an exciting countryside getaway. Whether you’re after some gentle walking, heavy hiking or extreme sports, you’ll find it in the beautiful Gwynedd landscape.
Of course, as one of the country’s most remote regions, Gwynedd also promises relaxation and unspoiled coastal walks. As such, whatever you might be seeking from your Welsh holiday, booking
flights to Gwyneddguarantees a great getaway. Close to several airports, you can fly to Gwynedd from a selection of domestic and international locations.
You could book flights to Gwynedd via Anglesey Airport, north-west of the county. This is the closest airport to Gwynedd, although you should know that it’s also the smallest and only receives flights from Cardiff and Norwich. Alternatively, you could fly to Gwynedd via Liverpool John Lennon Airport – about 100 miles north-east of central Gwynedd. Manchester Airport is a little further east still and Birmingham approximately the same distance away, but to the south of the county. With so many airports within driving distance, you’re sure to find convenient flights to Gwynedd, no matter where you’re flying from.
Depending on which airport you’re travelling from and where in Gwynedd you’re heading to, you might be able to catch a train or a bus from the airport. However, since many of Gwynedd’s towns don’t have direct train routes, your best bet may be to hire a rental car. Fortunately, Gwynedd is well connected to the Welsh road network, and you can drive here from Anglesey, Liverpool and Manchester along the North Wales Expressway (the A55) or from Birmingham along the M54.
Once your flight to Gwynedd arrives, get straight out and start exploring the area. With Snowdonia National Park dominating this county, why not head up the highest peak in Wales on the Snowdon Mountain Railway? Snowdon is over 3,500 feet high and the railway is a wonderful way to enjoy awe-inspiring views that will rival those from your flight to Gwynedd.
Snowdonia National Park is so high on the list for sightseeing that more understated attractions often take a back seat. For the ultimate escape once your flight to Gwynedd arrives, head to the isolated Llŷn Peninsula. At the end of this 30-mile outcrop is the tiny Bardsey Island. You can take a boat from the fishing village of Aberdaron for a guided tour of the area. Here you’ll get the chance to see dolphins, seals and birdlife in their natural habitat. You’ll also get to enjoy some rarely seen views over the west coast of Wales.
