Children are especially well catered for, with train rides on steam railways, farm parks, and multi activity centres to name but a handful.

For the more daring, Snowdonia has a huge variety of adventure sports - river kayaking, whitewater rafting, abseiling, mountain climbing, surfing, wind surfing, land yachting. The list is as endless as the rush of adrenaline.
