Outdoor activities for all the family to enjoy this weekend as the sun shines in North Wales

It will be a sunny and pleasant weekend across North Wales. This means it’s one of the premier opportunities of the year for families to get out and explore the outdoors.

Outdoor coronavirus restrictions are now a thing of the past in Wales. The only time you need to worry about Covid restrictions for those family days out is if you’re heading to a cafe or gift shop.

The Met Office predicts a fine weekend for North Wales this weekend. There are cool mornings and evenings with fog, but during the day and in the sun it is hot.

With all that in mind, we’ve put together three outdoor activities that are perfect for this weekend’s warm weather. If we missed your favorite please let us know in the comments below.

Free entrance

National Lottery Open Week 2022 kicks off this Saturday and lasts until Sunday, March 27. This means people can enter many National Lottery-funded sites across the region for free.

In order to take advantage of the free entry offer, you will need to present either a National Lottery ticket or a scratch card which may be a physical copy or a digital copy. The sites are scattered throughout North Wales and beyond.

Some of the sites affected are Chirk Castle, Conwy Nature Reserve and Erddig. You can find more places here.

Moel Famau



Going to Moel Famau this weekend?

The highest hill in the Clwydian range is Moel Famau and it is perfect for a family adventure and a day out. Located in Flintshire, Moel Famau will keep the family out of the house for hours and tire the little ones.

Moel Famau is free to climb and the path is safe, sometimes a little treacherous but perfect for people of all skill levels. Once you reach the top of the hill, there is a perfect spot for a picnic and a photo.

The Moel Famau area has been listed as an Area of ​​Outstanding Natural Beauty since 1985. You can find it here: CH7 5SH at the Moel Famau car park.

Gwydyr Forest

Nestled in Betws-y-Coed in Snowdonia National Park, Gwydyr Forest is the perfect family day out. The forest is laid out with different trails, with something to suit everyone’s abilities.

Each stage is signposted from start to finish and starts at the Pont y Pair car park in the center of Betws-y-Coed. However, if you are looking for the Llyn Elsi walk, which is noisier, you will start behind St Mary’s Church.

The Coed Tan Dinas Walk is perfect for families with small children. This one takes you on a path to discover the trees, some of which are over 100 years old.
