The walk through the mountains in North Wales was like from a movie or tv show. We enjoyed our group of like-minded travellers and got to benefit from the knowledge and expertise of our guide. The hike in the mountains surpassed our expectations especially the views and if anyone is up for a physical but doable challenge I would highly recommend this trip.
