When you’re looking to go walking with the whole family together, it can be really hard to find a walk that is suitable for everyone. You, of course, want to get a good dose of culture, landscapes and fresh air, but you might have a few scrappy youngsters to account for also.
Never fear, we here at Bron Y Wendon have decided on a list of several walks that are suitable for the whole bunch! The only consideration is that they might not all be pushchair or wheelchair friendly – but there is still plenty to explore!
A super easy, historical route that is great for the little ones or anyone who wants a relaxing paced stroll and a bit of fresh air. You can follow the path along the banks of Glaslyn, Beddgelert and finish the path at Gelert’s Grave. You can get some snaps and regale the family with the tale of Gelert the faithful hound!
Beginning this journey at the Ogene Cottages and visitor centre, this path takes you up some large rock step up to the shore of Llyn Idwal. The lake is surrounded by an outstanding amazing view. The stunning mountains of the Glyderau and Tryfan standing tall and proud alongside it make for a gorgeous backdrop.
Llyn Llydaw and Glaslyn
If you aren’t quite ready for the adventure of a walk-up Snowdon, then there’s nothing stopping you from using this route as a bit of a taster session. The route is largely the same way there and back, so you can turn around and head home whenever you feel like it. Toddlers will be able to make it to Llyn Llydaw while older kids will make it to Glaslyn.
This will give you unbelievable views of Snowdon, Wales’s highest mountain. You can arrive early to get a parking space or get the Snowdon Sherpa bus from the park and ride in the car park.
Lower Summits of the Carneddau range
This route is a little unknown compared to the others and you might quite possibly have to map out all your routes, it is definitely worth the effort. The land is clear and this is a great way to introduce your family to head off the beaten path. There are a fair few mini ridges for you to have a go at, that gives you a lovely view at some of the higher peaks. The walk can be finished off by getting back to the car along an ancient, Roman road. What an adventure! You can also check out the stone circle of Penmaenmawr which is a gorgeous and historical trip in itself.
