Best dog-friendly walks in North Wales

Wales Coast Path

Best for: Sea views
Distance: 12.9km
Time to complete: Four hours

The 870-mile Wales Coast Path runs the whole length of the Welsh coastline. In the North of Wales, dogs and their humans can enjoy views of the Bay of Ceredigion from Abersoch through Llanbedrog and ending in Pwllheli. The route is straightforward underfoot and takes in beautiful beaches, charming villages and magical headlands as the path clings to the Welsh Coast.

Llyn Peninsula

Best for: Wild exploration
Distance: 10.3km
Time to complete: Three and a half hours

The Llyn Peninsula, also known as ‘Snowdon’s Arm’, is home to many public footpaths, dog walks and hiking routes. At just over 10km, the route around the 490m-high summit of Gyrn Goch and neighbouring Gyrn Ddu offers walkers the chance to explore these lowly coastal hills. But, with wild surroundings and poorly marked footpaths, this is a challenging walk best suited to fine navigators.

Newborough National Nature Reserve and Forest

Best for: Family fun in the forest
Distance: 7km
Time to complete: Three hours

The Corsican pine trees that make up Newborough National Nature Reserve and Forest, on the Isle of Anglesey, are a haven for wildlife including the rare native red squirrel. Follow the Saint, Sand and Sea Trail from the beach car park through the forest, dunes and over to the island of Ynys Llanddwyn at low tide.

Llanberis Path

Best for: Climbing Snowdon
Distance: 14.4km
Time to complete: Five - six hours

There are many walking routes to choose from around Snowdon and across Snowdonia National Park. Llanberis Path runs parallel to the mountain railway and is regarded as one of the easiest routes to the peak but is a challenge for only the fittest dogs as it can be rocky underfoot and climbs 3,200 feet!

Great Orme

Best for: Seaside summit
Distance: 2.4km
Time to complete: 90 minutes

Llandudno’s ‘mini mountain’, Great Orme, is a limestone headland overlooking the Victorian seaside resort. Great Orme Country Park has a choice of scenic, waymarked walking routes up to the peak. The 2.4km-long Happy Valley Trail is the longest of the paths and offers beautiful views out to sea and down to the bustling town of Llandudno below.

Best dog-friendly beaches in North Wales

Aberffraw Dunes and Traeth Mawr Beach

Best for: Exploring the sand dunes

Aberffraw Dunes and Traeth Mawr Beach is an open stretch of sand in Aberffraw Bay, less than 10 miles from Anglesey. The beach is the perfect place for paddling and playing fetch. Low sand dunes are set back from the waves lapping on the shore and lead all the way to the village which boasts shops and eateries.

Harlech Beach

Best for: Golden sands

The golden sands of Harlech Beach stretch for four miles along the Bay of Ceredigion with views inland to Snowdonia’s peaks. The beach - just north of Llanfair and Llandanwg - is fringed by grassy sand dunes with Harlech Castle (a World Heritage Site) jutting out of the landscape nearby.

Talacre Beach

Best for: Lighthouse landmark

Talacre Beach stretches around the northern tip of Wales, just outside Prestatyn and across the River Dee from the Wirral. The 18m-tall decommissioned Point of Ayr Lighthouse, dating back to 1776, is the key landmark here but the beach is also the ideal spot for a run alongside your canine chum or even a game of frisbee.

Rhyl Beach

Best for: Low tide

Rhyl Beach is a two-mile stretch of sand that grows even vaster as the tide goes out to reveal a wide beach scattered with small pools of water. This traditional seaside spot is also home to a promenade complete with amusement arcades, crazy golf and an aquarium. Dogs are welcome outside of peak season (May to September) so if your pet wants to come too make sure you check the calendar and the tides!

Colwyn Bay Beach

Best for: Activities for the whole family

The three-mile Colwyn Bay Beach - also known as Rhos-on-Sea - is a great place to pitch up the loungers and spend the day paddling, fishing and swimming. Dogs can play on the beach while the family enjoy watersports. There are also walking routes and cycling paths nearby. Part of the beach operates dog restrictions from May to September so look out for the signs.

Things to do in North Wales

Plas yn Rhiw

Best for: Beautiful gardens

Plas yn Rhiw is a beautiful manor house and ornamental gardens dating back to the 16th century. Just outside Rhiw, the National Trust property overlooks the bay and is home to a quaint tea room serving snacks and treats. While there are dog restrictions in the house and gardens, your pooch is welcome to join you to follow the pretty paths weaving through the lower woodland.

Llanberis Lake Railway

Best for: A relaxing ride

For a relaxing ride through Snowdonia National Park, look no further than the charming steam trains that trundle along the Llanberis Lake Railway. The locomotives chug five miles past Dolbadarn Castle, through Padarn Country Park and past Llanberis’ twin lakes. Dogs can ride too for just £1 per pooch.

Sygun Copper Mine

Best for: Underground adventures

If your cheeky canine is a keen digger then Sygun Copper Mine is bound to be up his street. Here, the whole family can take a glimpse inside a Victorian mine. The self-guided tour takes in three levels of caving systems connected by steep staircases so this is only suitable for dogs who are comfortable clambering up and down steps.

Bala Watersports

Best for: Getting wet and wild!

Bala, a small market town in Gwynedd, is home to Bala Watersports - an outdoor adventure based on the town’s lake. The family-run firm offers lots of fun activities from archery and abseiling to windsurfing and sailing. But the best part - dogs are welcome to join in too! Your pooch can hop in a canoe or join you for a paddleboard so no one feels left out.

Criccieth Castle

Best for: Stepping back in time

Criccieth Castle commands a seat high on the cliffs with views across Cardigan Bay. The ruins - built by Llywelyn the Great in the 13th century and later reduced to ruins by Owain Glyndŵr. The historic fortress is now a popular visitor attraction thanks to its fascinating past and beautiful views. Dogs on leads are welcome to explore the ground floor levels with their owners.
