The Guardian reports that North Wales has been named among the top places in the world to visit in 2017.
Placed fourth on the list of regions to visit, north Wales is the only UK destination to be featured in the rankings, which are compiled by a panel of the travel publisher’s writers and experts.
North Wales was praised for its host of new adventure attractions, such as Surf Snowdonia in the Conwy Valley, an inland surfing lake described as “the most headline-stealing example of the region’s reinvention”.
Other attractions that drew Lonely Planet’s attention are Zip World which has attractions at three locations in north Wales, including the world’s fastest and Europe’s longest zip line, the first four-person zip line, and Bounce Below, a network of giant trampolines rigged together in the caverns beneath Blaenau Ffestiniog.
