Winter in North Wales - what you can do
Berthlwyd Hall Holiday Park - November 2nd 2022
North Wales is a beautiful region of the United Kingdom that offers plenty of outdoor activities and picturesque landscapes all year round, but it's especially magical during the winter months. From skiing and snowboarding (yes – really!) to scenic walks and cozy cottages, there's something for everyone in North Wales during the winter.
Ski and snowboard
When it snows heavily enough you can ski or snowboard in the mountain peaks of Snowdonia. Be warned, though, there are no lifts. When it does snow heavily, groups of hardy skiers and snowboarders hike up the mountains with boots and equipment and ski or snowboard backdown. For those who prefer an easier route up and down, you can also visit Llandudno dry slope – ideal for getting practice in before heading to the alps or further afield on your winter holiday.
Far from the maddening crowds… outdoors
If skiing and snowboarding aren't your thing, North Wales offers plenty of other outdoor activities during the winter. The region is known for its beautiful landscapes, and the cold weather and snowfall make for some truly breathtaking winter landscapes. Many people enjoy taking scenic walks through the countryside, whether it's a hike up a mountain or a stroll through a picturesque village. The winter is a great time to explore North Wales' towns and villages without the crowds, as the region is quieter than it is during the summer months.
Another great thing about North Wales in the winter is the Festivals and Events. The region hosts various winter festivals and events, such as Christmas markets, Christmas lights and fireworks, and New Year's Eve celebrations. These events are a great way to get into the holiday spirit and experience the local culture.
Cosy cottages and fires
The winter is also a great time to snuggle up in a cozy cottage and enjoy a warm drink. North Wales has many charming cottages and holiday homes that are perfect for a winter getaway. These cottages are typically period stone homes and come with a fireplace, making them the perfect place to relax and unwind after a day of outdoor activities.
