Winter walks

Winter is one of the most magical times of the year to go for a wild walk and appreciate the natural wonders of North Wales. The crisp mornings, the crunchy frost underfoot, the whistling wind and the symphony of wintering wildfowl makes for a truly special experience. Wrap up warm, put on your wellies and chase away the winter blues by exploring some of North Wales Wildlife Trust’s top walking destinations this winter.
