Journey Overview

As the bus leaves Bangor, the view from the window is dominated by the backdrop of mountains. These majestic peaks, famously known as the Eryri range, create an impressive backdrop to the urban landscape below. It really is a fascinating contrast!

As the bus continues on its adventure, it passes through the small village of Llandygai, where fields of green pasture and scattered farmhouses can be seen. The scenery gradually becomes more rural as the bus approaches Bethesda Victoria Square, with rolling hills and dense forests dominating the landscape.

As the bus climbs higher, it passes by the crystal-clear waters of Llyn Ogwen, a serene and tranquil lake nestled between the mountains. The reflections of the surrounding peaks shimmer on the surface of the water, creating a breathtaking view.

The next stop is St. Curig’s Church, an ancient and atmospheric building that dates back to the 12th century and is situated in a pretty valley, surrounded by fields.

The bus then enters the charming village of Betws-y-Coed, famous for its stunning natural scenery and quaint, historic buildings. The village is surrounded by ancient woodland and is crisscrossed by the meandering River Conwy.

As if this wasn’t thrilling enough, the scenery then becomes more rugged as the bus continues on its journey, passing through the delightful Pentrefoelas and Rhydlydan Turn. The views from the window are dominated by a mix of rocks and mountain slopes, creating a sense of awe and wonder and nature at its very best!

The next stop is the St Mary Magdalene Church in Cerrigydrudion, a beautiful and historic building dating back to the 14th century. The church is framed by rolling hills and open fields, creating a blissfully serene setting, far removed from the hustle and bustle of Bangor of which the adventure began.

As the bus continues on its captivating journey, it passes through Tynant and Maerdy, with stunning views of the surrounding mountains and valleys visible from the window. Finally, it arrives at Corwen, a charming and historic town situated in the heart of the beautiful Dee Valley. The town is surrounded by rolling hills and green fields, creating a sense of tranquility and peace. It really is the most blissful of denouements for this fascinating journey. A trip that stays long, if not forever more, in the memory bank!
