SATURDAY We make the short transfer to Porthmadog where we board the Welsh Highland Railway to Caernarfon, one of the most historic towns in Wales. Sit back and enjoy the magnificent scenery of the Snowdonia National Park, on what is truly one of the world’s great railway journeys.

SUNDAY A circular tour through the Coed y Brenin Forest returning along the coast road through Barmouth and Harlech, for an afternoon visit to the unique Italianate village of Portmeirion.
