Things to do and places to stay in Wales
If you’re looking for a place to have an outdoor adventure…
Go to Wales …it’s awesome!
In all honesty we could probably end the article there, but I guess if you haven’t been before we should tell you what you’re missing out on.
If outdoor adventures are your thing, or you’re looking for a bit of a micro-adventure for the family (or friends) Wales is a great place to start.
Boasting three National Parks, three National Trails (totalling almost 500 miles), amazing mountain ranges, Dark Sky parks, and a whole host of dedicated activity centres. If the outdoors isn’t your thing then a stay in the capital Cardiff can be a great way to spend an adventurous weekend.
Three welsh National Parks
Wales is home to three National Parks and each one offers something a little different
The Brecon Beacons has some beautiful walks, mountain biking trails (and centres) and is home to Pen-y-Fan – a relatively easy mountain climb offering some splendid views at the top.
The Pembrokeshire Coast is the only Coastal National Park in the UK, with plenty of long beautiful coastal walks and plenty of water based activities including coasteering.
So you’re probably already thinking about Mount Snowdon – and it’s definitely worth a visit, but there is a lot more to Snowdonia from zip lines, underground trampolines and white water rafting.
