Our Spectacular Snowdonia photography tour will take place in March 2023 and will be led by Verity Milligan. Snowdonia is one of the UK’s finest landscapes that is steeped in history and mythology. This part of Wales has many numerous appealing features, including the fact that there is a real diversity of the landscape in a small geographical space. Amongst the nine mountain ranges including the famous Snowdon, there are twenty-three miles of beautiful coastline. In addition to the beauty of the natural features, there are the scars on the landscape left by industrial endeavours, including slate quarries such as Dinorwig, which dominates the vista above Llyn Padarn.

Your tour leader, Verity, has a personal connection with the area, with her Taid (Welsh for Grandfather) working most of his life as a slate quarryman in Dinorwig and her mother born in Llanberis at the foot of Snowdon. This landscape has been a part of her life from early childhood with each summer holiday spent exploring this amazing part of the world. During this tour we will aim to show you the best that Snowdonia has to offer.

Spectacular Snowdonia Photography Tour - Snowdonia Landscape Photography

Snowdonia is one of the UK’s finest landscapes that is steeped in history and mythology. This part of Wales has many numerous appealing features, including the fact that there is a real diversity of the landscape in a small geographical space. Amongst the nine mountain ranges including the famous Snowdon, there are twenty-three miles of beautiful coastline. In addition to the beauty of the natural features, there are the scars on the landscape left by industrial endeavours, including slate quarries such as Dinorwig, which dominates the vista above Llyn Padarn.

Your tour leader, Verity, has a personal connection with the area, with her Taid (Welsh for Grandfather) working most of his life as a slate quarryman in Dinorwig and her mother born in Llanberis at the foot of Snowdon. This landscape has been a part of her life from early childhood with each summer holiday spent exploring this amazing part of the world. During this tour we will aim to show you the best that Snowdonia has to offer. We’ll explore the area around Llanberis, including Llyn Padarn, Dolbadarn Castle and the accessible parts of Dinorwig quarry, which still has many left-over remnants of its industrial past and can be a fertile ground for creativity. For a view of the Snowdon horseshoe, we’ll visit the lakeside of Llynau Mymbyr as well as Llyn Ogwen for a dramatic view of Mount Tryfan.

Away from the mountains we’ll explore the amazing beaches of Anglesey, especially Newborough, which boasts a pine woodland just off the beach itself as well as considerable dunes that can be used for compositions looking back towards the mainland. There’s also the tidal island of Ynys Llanddwyn and Ynys Llanddwyn lighthouse which is more than worth the walk along the beach, especially during the golden hour(s). Along the coast is Penmon Point with the imposing eerie Trwyn Du lighthouse, a great location for sunrise. To complete of trio of lighthouses, we’ll visit South Stack on the west coast of Anglesey, looking across the Irish Sea.

In addition to the mountains and coastlines, Snowdonia has plenty of forests and waterfalls, including the beautiful Fairy Glen just outside Betws-y-Coed, and we’ll aim to spend some time photographing these locations over the course of the tour. By the end of the tour we hope you’ll have fallen in love with this ancient, magical landscape and have plenty of wonderful imagery, and memories, to take home with you.
