Give The Gift of Experience This Christmas2nd Dec
It is, without doubt, the time of year when we begin to plan our Christmas holiday, who we will spend our time with, when and how, as well as the ritual of giving.
Following a tumultuous two years where we’ve been restricted on our general movements, and inevitably travel, many of us are keen to enjoy new experiences now more than ever. And so why not offer the gift of experience this Christmas? We’ve listed a raft of wonderful experiences to cater for all family and friends. Dotted along the stunning Snowdonia 360 route take a look and see if you can spot the perfect present for your loved one.
Many members are offering gift vouchers that can be used at any point during the year. Adventure Parc Snowdonia, Plas Menai, Snowdon Mountain Railway, RibRide, Gypsy Wood Family Park, Glasfryn Parc, Zip World, Bala Lake Railway and Greenwood Family Park are amongst those offering vouchers to suit any budget.
For animal lovers, both the Anglesey Sea Zoo and Welsh Mountain Zoo invite present givers to ‘Adopt an animal’. Almost every animal and sea faring creature is available for adoption with funds used to support their care and upkeep.
For something a little bit different, Talyllyn Railway are offering driver and footplate experiences, quarryman’s experiences and afternoon tea. At the National Slate Museum, an Introduction to Blacksmithing Course could raise a smile on Christmas Day! For those looking to improve or discover more about the Welsh language, Nant Gwrtheyrn offer courses for learners of all abilities with residential stays also available within this stunning and dramatic coastal setting. Maybe a relaxing spa break at Portmeirion might be more to their taste coupled with dinner at one of two of their onsite restaurants.
Sian Pritchard of Snowdonia 360 commented: “Post lockdown, more and more people are looking to try and embrace new experiences rather than collect material objects.
“Our members have so much to offer this year in terms of experiences, there really is something for everyone. Adventure lovers, outdoor enthusiasts, and culture and heritage fans could benefit from and enjoy the Snowdonia 360 gift of experience!”
