The spectacular and dramatic beauty of Snowdonia is hard to describe.
Your flight starts from Betws y Coed, set in the beautiful Snowdonia forest park, surrounded by woods, mountains and waterfalls. No wonder it is North Wales' most visited inland resort.
From here you will fly south west, passing over the castle at Dolwyddelan, built in the 13th century by Llwelyn the Great. The breathtaking range of scenery continues to unfold beneath you as you pass by Blaenau Ffestiniog and onto to Portmerion, the picturesque Italianate village made famous by the Prisoner TV series.
Heading north you will fly over Beddgelert, the prettiest village in Snowdonia and setting for Rupert the Bear. Watch out for the Dragons at Castle Dinas Emrys! The two Dragons were captured in a cauldron of beer and buried beneath the castle.
On route back to Bettws you will fly pass Snowdon, at 1085m is the highest mountain in Wales, Sir Edmund Hilary trained here before climbing Everest, and legend has it that a giant killed by Arthur is buried on its summit.
Flights depart from Craig Y Dderwen, The Riverside Hotel Beyws Y Coed. Flights take place on certain weekends through out the year. Max weight 17st. children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. Incase of bad weather the route may change to follow the Conwy Valley north to Conwy and Colwyn Bay.

My partner bought this as a present for me. Directions were clear except for there was no anti-aircraft gun by the gate anymore. Luckily we had been before so we knew we were in the right place. no facilities at all so you need to use a toilet and get food and drink before you arrive. maybe a mobile number to contact the instructor would helpful we were delayed in traffic and couldn't make contact with him as only an answer phone in the office. Instructor Jim was very friendly and put me at ease straight away lorry was smartly presented and clean inside and out. Id done the experience before so we went straight into driving after a quick refresher on the position of the gears.IT WAS EXCELLENT, BRILLIANT instructor-very informative and obviously keen to advise and help the participants. I took photos all the way around.
Overall rating: Excellent
