Our Recommended Route

Our Recommended Route

Our route takes you from Machynlleth along the A 487 heading north, then continues along the A470 through the stunning Snowdonia National Park and finishes at Conwy.

Machynlleth is a fascinating market town in Powys, Montgomeryshire and the mountain road heading north towards Corris takes you past the Centre for Alternative Technology before winding its way towards Lake Tal-y-Llyn, offering stunning views of Cadair Idris along the way. If you want to stretch your legs as well as the new Merc you could walk up Cadair, one of the prettiest and most popular mountains in Wales, but do take appropriate clothing and footwear. Afterwards head to Dolgellau for lunch, then it’s up and over the mountains of Snowdonia, through Blaenau Ffestiniog, through Betwsy Coed, Llanrwst and along the Conwy valley to Conwy.

Things to do along the Way

Machynlleth is a favourite market town among holiday makers and the nearby Centre for Alternative Technology is also well worth a visit. Blaenau Ffestiniog is a great place for outdoor adventure with mountain biking and zip-wiring, while Betws y Coed is the mountaineers’ main activity centre. Also stop off to appreciate the amazing 17th century Bridge at Llanrwst before heading for the historic Conwy Castle, built by King Edward I between 1283 and 1289.

Snowdonia National Park

Snowdonia National Park contains an extensive network of trails with over 100 lakes and craggy mountain peaks like Cadair Idris and Tryfan plus glacial landforms. The famous Snowdon Mountain Railway slowly climbs to the summit of Wales's highest mountain, Mount Snowdon, and on a clear day provides views across the sea to Ireland!
