As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWales is famous for its castles, so helping to educate our guests on their place in Welsh history is an important part of understanding the culture of this small nation. Every guest on our Nature Discovery break receives admission to Beaumaris Castle as part of their package. As well as supporting the maintenance of this historic building, we hope it actively encourages you to visit the castle and explore it's fascinating history. It's 'walls within walls' design gives it a unique character - learn about the reasons for this when you step inside.
Wildlife is a big focus on this tour too. North Wales is rich in wildlife: land mammals, sea mammals, sea birds and birds of prey in all sizes. Exploring Snowdon, the highest mountain in England and Wales, gives the opportunity to see the resident Welsh mountain goats. With their swept back horns and black and white shaggy coats, they're an unmistakable sight.
Look high above and you'll spot Buzzard's circling overhead. And if you're very lucky you'll glimpse the Red Kite, Wales' national bird. Once on the brink of extinction, this impressive bird is now flourishing in certain areas thanks to heroic conservation efforts.
By raising awareness of these endangered species and the conservation efforts to protect them, we can support the efforts of local conservation charities that depend on donations to carry out their important work.
PeopleDuring your Nature Discovery trip in North Wales, you will have time to explore the beautiful town of Beaumaris on Anglesey and the historic riverside town of Llangollen. Both are full of small independent shops selling locally made crafts and quality artisan produce.
We encourage you to support these local businesses by purchasing their goods to enjoy yourself or to take home as gifts. You'll find all sorts, from traditional bara brith and welsh cakes to satisfy your sweet tooth, to locally distilled gin and handmade pottery for gifts that have a better chance of lasting long enough to take back home!
Both towns are blessed with a number of independently owned cafes and eateries too, offering delicious meals and snacks. Not to mention the pubs with their locally brewed ales. These small business all work together to support each other, creating a thriving community of artisan producers and retailers.
It's our pleasure to help you discover the places we think you'll enjoy most, depending on what you're looking for. Whether it's a lazy coffee, a quick bite of lunch or an indulgent evening meal, there's something for everyone. We know that finding the right places to enjoy your holiday moments can create everlasting memories, and with our help you don't need to pore endlessly over guidebooks to find them.
