Enjoy a relaxing drive through lovely landscapes to Beddgelert, where you’ll have some free time to explore on your own, or grab some lunch. Afterwards, head to Beddgelert station and hop on the Welsh Highland Railway. Then sit back and soak up the amazing scenery filled with rugged mountains, green valleys and cascading waterfalls. Running through Snowdonia National Park, this historical narrow-gauge heritage railway, zig-zags dramatically up the steep hillside from Beddgelert, to almost 200 metres above sea level, in the foothills of Snowdon. When you reach Caernarfon, below the castle walls, you’ll disembark and drive back to Holyhead.
