8 days (Bike: 7 days)
Dramatic coastline, beaches, lakes and mountain scenery in the Snowdonia National Park
The northwest corner of Wales is a dramatic mixture of Celtic culture and coastal spectacle, set against a backdrop of rugged mountain scenery.Some of our rides explore the gently-undulating lanes of the Lleyn Peninsula, and are rarely more than a few miles from the sea. We cycle alongside the Menai Strait through the castellated town of Caernarfon, past the broad sandy expanse of Dinas Dinlle beach, and to the 'mediterranean' seaside town of Criccieth.On other days we dip into the western edge of Snowdonia, visiting Llanberis, Beddgelert and the panoramic drovers' road to Prenteg.For 2018 we're making a few changes to the routes. If you've been before, you can expect to see a few new sights, travel some unfamiliar lanes and find a new perspective on some familiar places. Of course we've also kept the classic rides that regular Beanoers know and love.Wednesday is an optional cycle-free day: you could visit the fantasy village of Portmeirion where the cult TV series The Prisoner was filmed; go up Snowdon; cycle to a nearby beach; or laze by the clear waters of the lake. Or of course we'll have an extra ride available for you if you want to cycle every day!
