First deaprt lodgings at Porthmadog and drive for about 45 minutes to the Snowdon Mountain Railway at Llanberis. Here join the 10.30 am train to the top of Mount Snowdon (3560 feet) and then return via the same route. Round trip takes two and a half hours.

Next,  join the 3.45 pm departure on the Ffestiniog Railway which provides aa round trip via Blaenau Ffestiniog returning at 6.30 pm. This route passes through more stunning scenery including farmland with sheep, cattle and a horses.The green landscapes are embellished with a wide range of seasonal flora including heather (in bloom).
