How to find us...

and things to do and see when you are here....

Wales is fast becoming one of the UK’s leading adventure capitals: In Wales you can fly by zip wire at 100mph above a slate quarry or go surfing – not just in the sea – but in the heart of the country. Scale a waterfall or bounce on the world’s largest underground trampoline, mountain bike centres at Coed-y-Brenin and Bike Park Wales, are some of the best in the world, and you can paddleboard, kayak and raft. Wales’ three National Parks, endless mountain ranges and 870 miles (1,400km) of coastline offer challenging walks and hikes for all ages and abilities. Adventure travel in Wales means much more than adrenalin – it means discovering new and unusual places, watching wildlife, and stargazing. You can watch dolphins and red kites, forage for edible foods, visit the Hay Festival, Glass Butter beach festival and Portmerion Festival No 6. You can take a 2,000 year journey through time from the Romans to cosmopolitan, modern-day Wales. And then there are all those castles to discover – a lifetime’s work, really, with over 600 to explore…
