Walking on carpet

In case you didn't know, it's National Walking Day today where living in beautiful North Wales definitely has its perks

Here's 5 local walking destinations where our colleagues at Linney Cooper love visiting:

① The Great Orme, Llanduno -

If you're on the search for amazing views then taking a trek up Llandudno's 5-6 mile Orme summit trail needs to be on your list.

Boasting views all along the North Wales coast, as well as Liverpool Bay, the Carneddau range, the Menai Strait, Anglesey and the infamous Puffin Island.

There's also the option of taking the cable cart back down if you're feeling tired.

② Angel Bay, Penrhyn Bay -

Angel Bay is a lovely little nature reserve with a popular viewpoint and can be found on the end of the Little Orme.

It's ideal for dog walkers or you can walk to Llandundo or Penhryn Bay for a longer coastal walk.

If you're lucky, you may also witness a number of seals chilling on the beach or swimming for food in the cold breeding season.

③ Betws-y-Coed, Conwy -

The beautiful village of Betws-y-coed consists of a range of shops and cafes whilst being the home of a number of hiking trails.

The Gwydyr Forest is full of trails, old miners' paths, cycle tracks and long established forest walks which open out to reveal the enchanting lakes of Llyn Elsi, Llyn Parc, Llyn Geirionydd and Llyn Crafnant.

There's also the small Swallow Falls waterfall.

④ Aber Falls, Gwynedd -

Aber Falls is one of Snowdonia's most dramatic waterfalls and is definitely worth a visit.

With a pushchair friendly route, the 37 metre high spectacle is situated near Abergwyngregyn and plunges into a pool for keen swimmers.

It's also a popular picnic destination.

⑤ Snowdon, Snowdonia -

Finally, the highest mountain in Wales and England, the popular Snowdon.

There's a number of trails to walk from beginners to expert terrains but there's also the Snowdon Mountain Railway if you want to quickly reach the top.

It's one of Wales' most famous and recognisable landmarks and is well worth a visit, boasting the most beautiful views and a café at the summit.
