What you'll do

Pick up will be at Caernarfon tourist information, opposite the main castle gate. We'll take a brief route through the town to point out some local history and context you won't find in the guidebooks, before heading west. Enroute we'll provide an introduction to the areas folklore and how the ancient stories link the area together in the history of Europe and the world from pre-roman times, to the industrial revolution, to modern day. We'll stop at some spots along the way for stunning photos of the coastline and back towards the Snowdonia massif. We will visit the artisan workshops of an old stately home, a beachside iron age hillfort, then bring you to the foot what was once the largest iron age hillfort in western Europe. The walk to the top is gentle and takes about an hour.. The perimeter wall about 10meters wide is still plainly visible, as are the roundhouse bases. At it's top, the 360° view is one of the best in north Wales, not only looking back to Caernarfon's setting guarding the Menai straits, but on a fine day also enabling a view of all of Anglesey, Cardigan Bay, the isle of man and ireland. If weather is inclement we can instead visit a once-abandoned quarrying village just below the hillfort, now a centre for the Welsh language. We'll head back to caernarfon via PantDu vinyard in Nanlle for a tea or coffee, or perhaps a taste of something stronger!

Dyfan

I am born and raised in this culturally rich corner of Wales. We were educated in Welsh, and taught the Mabinogi in school -Wales' mystical folklore tales. These are largely set in the land a few miles to the west of Caernarfon where I grew up. As I child my parents would take me to the many significant ancient sites -stone 'cromlech's menhirs and circles, hillforts, and the rugged wild places of these shores and mountains. This land, its people,its language and its history is just a part of me. In my profession I'm in design and technology, but my passion is in social betterment, community, sustainability. I believe the natural environment and cultural values of the Wales that I know will (among others!) become recognised of increasing value to societies. I am keen to share and help enable insight and appreciation to my world
