Top Five Most Wonderful Walks in Wales

Fri, 04 Feb 2022

Searching for your next walking destination? It could be closer than you think. Take a look at our top five walks in Wales - a small country with so much to offer.

The Wonders of Snowdonia

Our holiday to Snowdonia will provide you with a week of exploring one of Wales’ most famous natural landmarks. You’ll spend each day making your way through the national park, exploring different paths across hills, through valleys and past glistening lake shores.

This break allows you to get a taste of mountain rambling at an easier pace, compared to our more challenging Snowdonia experience, in which we climb the high peaks.

Offa’s Dyke

Take on the challenging central section of Offa’s Dyke, an ancient trail following the Anglo-Welsh border. You’ll follow this path for 66 miles, passing by staggering scenery along the way. Ascend the cliffs of Llanymynech Hills, cross through the Black Mountains and reach the highest point of the entire route.

 If you’d love to traverse this trail but are worried about the intensity of this route, you could opt to walk the Northern section instead. This covers the first 50 miles southwards from Prestatyn to Chirk Castle and combines sightseeing with an adventurous trek in the countryside.

The Gower Peninsula

Not only will you get to stretch your legs over sandy beaches on our holiday to the Gower Peninsula, but you’ll also experience what is arguably the finest coastal scenery in all of Britain. After all, the Gower Peninsula is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; comprising long expanses of shoreline, historic castles and pretty villages.

Walk atop the dramatic cliffs, where paths will lead you along the winding coastline. You’ll travel over the bay, stopping at sites such as Arthur’s Stone and taking in views across the Brecon Beacons. If breathtaking scenery is your favourite accompaniment to any hike, this getaway is not one to be missed.

The Four Corners of Anglesey

Venture off the mainland’s northwest coast to Anglesey, a magnificent Welsh island retreat. The itinerary for this walking holiday endeavours to cover all sides of this intriguing location, with visits to plenty of hidden gems in the process.

The island is rich with places to uncover, from rambling the Anglesey coastal path and ascending Holyhead Mountain to visiting Trwyn Du Lighthouse, near ‘Puffin Island’. You’ll also experience a touch of local life as you stop by quaint villages such as Beaumaris and Malltraeth. Not to mention the outstanding views of Snowdonia and the Llŷn Peninsula.

Ceredigion & the Pembrokeshire Coast

Discover another side to this delightful country on Wales’ west coast. The counties of Pembrokeshire, its national park and Ceredigion are packed full of places that a keen rambler would enjoy.

Relish this easy-going five-night break, following the area’s fantastic trails. Along with spectacular walks along the secluded shores, you might also catch sightings of seals, dolphins and porpoises from the very tops of the cliffs. Any wildlife lovers will feel right at home here.
