Why visit Wales?

Active adventures

Wales is a place that takes the outdoors seriously – about 20% of its land is protected by national park status, and there are many ways in which you can explore its scenery. Walking trails, cycle routes, canoe hire and horse riding outings are plentiful around Wales, as are more challenging options for daredevils, like gorge scrambling and downhill mountain bike trails. 

Stunning coastline

Wales was the first country to establish a walking trail all the way around its 870 miles of coast – that’s how much this country loves its coastline. Even short stretches offer up spectacular views, or you could simply head straight to one of the hotspots like Pembrokeshire or Llandudno to paddle from sandy beaches and explore hidden coves.

Heaps of history

Famously, Wales has more castles per square mile than any other country in the world, so it’s easy to get a sense of its history as you travel around. From the fossil-strewn beaches of the Vale of Glamorgan up to the imposing castles of Caernarfon and Harlech, you’re never far from somewhere that you can step back in time around Wales.

Essential things to do in Wales

  • Climb a mountain – both Snowdon in the north and Pen y Fan in the south are accessible for first-timers

  • Spend the day at Barafundle Bay, a Pembrokeshire beach that often features on lists of the world’s best

  • Explore the colourful Italian-style seaside village of Portmeirion

  • Hire canoes and paddle down the river Wye from Monmouth 

  • Join a sea safari from New Quay to see if you can spot Britain’s biggest resident pod of dolphins

  • Experience a thrilling ride on the fastest zipline in the world at Zip World Penrhyn Quarry

Unexplored Wales

Crowd-free walks

Popular spots like Snowdon can get very busy at peak times, but there are many alternatives around when it comes to places to go for a walk. Take a look instead at areas like the Clwydian Range or Teifi Valley for trails that are just as pretty but much less visited.

Ancient trees

Visit Borth beach at low tide and you’ll find yourself wandering among the remains of a petrified forest that’s said to be several thousand years old. The three miles of sand at this Ceredigion beach make it a great place to visit at any time, but it’s worth trying to time your trip to see this incredible phenomenon.

Colourful trails

Anglesey’s remote location makes it a good place to find quieter stretches of coastline, and it’s also home to some quite spectacularly colourful walks through the abandoned copper mine at Parys Mountain – any snaps you take along the way will have an amazing background of all sorts of shades of reds, purples, yellows and pinks.

Here’s how

Camping in Wales is a fantastic way to continue enjoying all that fresh air and scenery from dawn to dusk, whether you choose to pitch close to the beach or perhaps choose a farm site where you can wake to uninterrupted rural views.

You can also choose your Wales campsite with specific requests by using our filters to narrow down your choices – perhaps you’d like somewhere with a play area for the kids, or where you can do some fishing on site?
