Beddgelert New Years Eve Walk
New Years Eve In Beddgelert
Have you made plans for New Years Eve yet?
Situated in the heart of Snowdonia, Beddgelert is a beautiful little village.
Beddgelert is a significant tourist attraction, its picturesque bridge crossing the River Colwyn just upstream of its confluence with the River Glaslyn. It is also the nearest village to the scenic Glaslyn gorge, an area of tumultuous river running between steep wooded hills.
Beddgelert has a range of hotels with public bars, guesthouses, cafes, and restaurants.
Part of the restored Welsh Highland Railway runs through the village. In April 2009 the railway station was reopened to the public. The line links the village with Caernarfon to the north and Porthmadog to the south.
We will leave Beddgelert at 9.30 and follow the Glaslyn River along the old Fishermans Path to Nantmor, then up through Cwm Bychan and on to Llyn Dinas then back along the river into the village. Its a walk of around 7 miles, and if we have time, we can visit Dinas Emrys, where the mighty Welsh dragon was released from his underground chamber.
If you can manage to get accommodation for the night, then you can come to the party on the bridge at midnight to see in the New Year. Fireworks, fancy dress, bagpipes and a lot of people having a lot of fun. Its one of the highlights of my year.
The cost of the walk is £25 per person with under 16's free of charge if accompanied by legal guardian. Up to 2 free child places with every paying adult.
Meeting place will be the main pay and display car park in Beddgelert. Full details will be emailed to all attendees closer to the time, once we know exact numbers.
Complete the walk under the safe guidance of fully qualified, insured and first aid trained mountain guides.
