If you’re planning a holiday, but you don’t intend on venturing all that far from home, then North Wales has plenty to offer. This goes especially during summer-time, when you can get outdoors and enjoy the landscape with an active static caravan holiday.
Summer is arguably the best time to visit. If you can put up with the crowds, then you’ll be able to enjoy blazing sunshine, even when you’re atop the country’s tallest peaks.
Things to do in North Wales in Summer
So, what activities might take your fancy in this part of the world? Let’s run through a few of the standouts.
North Wales is home to the world’s highest canal – and the longest aqueduct in the UK. You’ll need to be able to conquer a fear of heights, but the views you’ll be rewarded with are spectacular. Take a boat ride from one side to the other.
Climb a Mountain
While Snowdon captures most tourist attention, Snowdonia is home to other peaks of similar scale and grandeur. You might find that you have a mountain closer to where you’re staying – one that you won’t have to queue to get to the top of.
Visit the Seaside
When the sunshine is blazing, it only makes sense to pay a visit to one of Wales’ famous seaside towns. Llandudno comes with a famous promenade and spectacular views, and plenty of opportunities to get down onto the sand with a bucket and spade.
Walk along the Coast
Wales is home to truly spectacular coastline – so, if you’re thinking of hiking from one end to the next, then you’ll have the luxury of being able to stay at dozens of incredible towns and villages.
You might think of a bottlenose dolphin as an exotic animal that’s only to be found overseas – but of course, many dolphins come to Wales, too. Cardigan Bay is home to the UK’s largest population of them, along with a healthy number of Harbour Porpoises, too.
North Wales is where you’ll find some of the best mountain-biking trails anywhere in the UK. There are also a few flatter routes that you might want to cycle, too.
With its sweeping, windswept coastal landscape, Wales is a part of the country that’s perfectly suited to golf (especially if you lack the inclination to head up to Scotland). You’ll find dozens of courses spread along the coast.
