A magical land of castles, mountains, myths and legends

Steeped in history Wales is the land of mountains, castles, myths and magic.  There is plenty to inspire your students from exploring the history of this country, learning its language and visiting some of the finest attractions in the British Isles.  And don’t forget its natural beauty from the majestic Snowdonia Mountains and the surrounding peaks to miles and miles of sandy beaches, we know that you will have a brilliant trip.

North Wales has so much to offer including rugged mountains, beautiful countryside and many historical sites. This trip to combines history, geography and outward bound activities, but it’s also an ideal destination for most subjects.

DAY 1

In the afternoon we visit one of the largest  hydro-electric dams in the UK which is built deep inside a mountain and on returning to the surface we have a range of activities nearby to choose from including a high wire course – not for the fainthearted! A fun afternoon learning how to abseil and climb amongst the trees. After dinner, there is time to walk around the nearby town.
