Perhaps the signature season of Wales, spring brings with it a tapestry of colours in the form of blooming flowers; the most recognisable probably being the daffodils. The weather is drier and milder and to top it off for the nature lovers, there’ll be an array of lambs, wildflowers and chirping birdsong to be in awe of along the way.
Here are a few recommendations of things to do in Snowdonia and its surrounding areas in Spring.
The simply stunning waterfalls of North Wales will impress at any time of the year, but they really are at their best in early spring. They’ve been nurtured by the winter rain, ensuring a decent cascade, while the surrounding trees have limited leaves so it creates the perfect light for some photography opportunities. Aber Falls or Rhaeadr Fawr is a waterfall located about 2 miles from the small village of Abergwyngregyn; with stunning walking paths and a beautiful location, it won’t get much better than a trip here.
Connect with the Past
From ancient burial chambers to medieval castles, the history in Wales has been well preserved. You’ll never be short of a historical attraction to visit. With castles dotted along the coast, and extras like the copper mines or slate quarries; you can learn all about what life was like in Wales in the olden days.
Get back to nature and get close to some of Snowdonia’s wildlife. Along the coast keep a weathered eye out for herons, oystercatchers, seals and dolphins. If you’re out walking on higher ground watch out for wild mountain goats, there are several family groups in Snowdonia.
