Eight days by rail – some steam-driven - through North Wales’ most epic landscapes.

Find your inner dragon on this week-long car-free adventure. Enter Wales via your chosen route to the classic Victorian seaside resort of Llandudno and medieval fortress of Conwy. Travel inland by private transfer to Snowdonia and its slate-covered mountains. Then head west to the Afon Dwyryd estuary for three nights at the fairy-tale village of Portmeirion, gateway to the Welsh Highland Railway and imposing Caernarfon Castle.
