For adventurers who:

Need a short UK break to rewild themselves in a breathtakingly wild space.

Day 1: Saturday

Pick up from Manchester airport at 10.30am, or from Chester train station at 11.30am if arriving by train. We’ll take you to your hotel in Beaumaris, arriving around 12.30pm. Once settled in, your guide will welcome you with a briefing, then the afternoon is yours to relax and explore this historic town.

At one time Wales had over 600 castles and today 100 of those still stand, either in ruins or restored. One of the most impressive is Beaumaris Castle with its ‘walls within walls’ design. Take the afternoon to explore this fascinating historic town and its magnificent castle at your own leisure. Check out the local bars and restaurants in the evening.

Day 2: Sunday

Snowdon mountain is the jewel in the crown of Snowdonia National Park. Standing at 1,085m it’s the highest mountain in England and Wales. The views from its summit are spectacular on a clear day. Today is a full day of hiking to reach the peak of this impressive, rocky landmark. Breathe the crisp mountain air and soak up the stunning panoramic views.

There is a cafe at the summit providing refreshments and light meals so you can replenish your energy before we embark on the descent back to base.

This evening we host dinner for you and your group in a local restaurant. How better to get to know each other better than reflecting on today’s memories, while enjoying locally produced food and a few Welsh beers.

Day 3: Monday

Explore the island of Anglesey by sea and by land. In the morning you’ll head out on a RIB power boat to discover the hidden gems of this rugged coastline and the native wildlife that calls it home. Puffins, seals and dolphins are regularly spotted along these shores.

Back on dry land, in the afternoon you’ll take to the road and travel around the island’s small villages to explore the local culture. Visit some of its many lighthouses and soak up the views of countryside and seashore. You’ll see how this rural island is a coastal retreat for all sorts of native wildlife.

Day 4: Tuesday

Pack your bags, you’re heading inland today to begin your time in the hills and woodlands of North Wales. In the safe hands of our local expert, here you’ll learn foraging and bushcraft skills. Discover how to source delicious ingredients from the landscape around you and rediscover your inner self.

Your bushmaster guide will show you how to prepare and cook a delicious meal around an open campfire. Relax into the evening, toasting marshmallows and sharing stories with your travel-mates. Then retire to your bell tent for a cosy night of North Wales glamping under the stars.

Day 5: Wednesday

Emerge from your cosy canvas canopy feeling truly rewilded. After a hearty campfire breakfast the group will have chance to try out some traditional outdoor games such as axe-throwing!

Our minibus will collect you from the glamping site late morning to take a short drive to the picturesque riverside town of Llangollen. Here we’ll have a short stop so you can explore the pretty streets of this historic North Wales town and enjoy lunch before heading to the airport / train station.

The River Dee runs right through the heart of the town, providing the perfect photo opportunity and a beautiful spot to enjoy traditional fish and chips. Llangollen is also famous for the steam train, which still runs there today.

Hop back on the minibus and don’t forget this last chance to swap details with your new travel mates! It’ll be group hugs all round as we make drop offs at Chester train station around 3.00pm and at Manchester airport for 4.00pm.

What you need to know

  • This trip will run with a minimum of 8 people but no more than 16, to make sure you enjoy that small group feel
  • Please note, this trip may be rearranged or cancelled if fewer than 8 people are booked. We’ll let you know at least 30 days in advance

  • We don’t believe in charging people more for exploring our world solo, so we’ll always match you up with a like-minded traveler to share with. Your room in Beaumaris will be on a twin basis. The bell tents for glamping each sleep up to 4 max. If you would prefer your own room we can usually accommodate that, though an extra charge would apply – simply select the appropriate optional extra when you book your adventure online
