It features 10 of the best road trips which gives the driver and passengers’ surprises around every corner.

The 70 mile route starts at the architectural private village of Portmeirion, winding its way to the Victorian village of Betws y Coed before ending in the town of Caernarfon and it’s commanding castle.  From waterfalls, rivers and lakes, mountains, moors and forest, to tourism hotspots including Wales’ coastline, pretty villages, steam trains and a castle, this route has something for everyone.
