Todays tour works our way through Southern Snowdonia with options to appeal to everyone.
During the morning you can choose from two tour options
Tour Option A: Wales is full of legends, myths and great stories. Some say King Arthur and his Knights are still hiding asleep in a cave somewhere in Snowdonia, where when they wake, they will once again defend Britain against an invading enemy! So step aboard your boat on a tour underground, where your hooded boatman guides you through a labyrinth of underground tunnels through an old slate mine. You’ll sail through a cascading veil of an underground waterfall and discover a magical place where tales from the mists of time are retold. Tales of dragons, giants and the legendary King Arthur himself.
Afterwards we head for Aberystwyth where you can ride the unique cliff railway for a stunning view from the top of Constitution Hill of the Cambrian Coast.
Tour Option B: Further south there is the opportunity to experience one of the Great Little Steam trains of Wales. All aboard for a stunning scenic steam railway journey through ancient woodlands to Devil’s Bridge, home of the famous waterfalls, nestled in the magnificent Cambrian Mountains. The Vale of Rheidol Railway re-creates the Edwardian spirit of adventure aboard one of the restored steam trains for a stunning journey along the Rheidol Valley. Afterwards there’s time to visit the waterfalls before making our way across country to the coast.
Both tour options make it to the pretty Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron and further along the coast we pull in to visit the resort town of New Quay. Later on you’ll step back to the ancient history of Wales with a visit to the largest and best preserved Neolithic Dolmen in Wales, dating from around 3500 BC. Our coastal forage also captures the town of Fishguard. To round off a spectacular touring day we head for the beach and cliffs of the Pembrokeshire coast to visit a hidden gem – the Blue Lagoon.
Our tour highlights of the Cambrian Coast and Hills features:
- King Arthur’s Labarynth and the Aberystwyth Cliff Railway
- or the Vale of Rheidol Railway and Devils’ Bridge Waterfalls
- Pentre Ifan Burial Chamber
