Snowdonia National Park
You can’t consider yourself to have had the full Welsh experience until you can say you’ve summited mount Snowdon. Taking in the scenery from the top of the highest mountain in Wales is definitely one for the Welsh holiday bucket list. With lots of routes up, there is a selection to choose from which can be accessed by walkers of any ability.
A slight drive from Aberdovey, but well worth it is Zip World. With attractions ranging from the fastest zipline in Europe, to bouncing around in the underground caverns. There’s an adventure to be had here! The Fforest Coaster has proven to be a big hit with kids and adults alike, zooming through the trees in a coaster, with daring twists and turns it’s definitely one for the bravehearted.
Adventure Parc Snowdonia
There are very few places on earth that you can surf inland, but North Wales is fortunately home to Adventure Parc Snowdonia, the world-first surf lagoon! If you want to catch some guaranteed waves this summer, this is the place to be. There’s also stuff on offer for the non-surfers; such as the new adrenaline indoors which includes artificial caving, extreme slides and climbing walls. A weather-proof day that can be enjoyed by thrill-seekers of all ages.
Instead of going to the local swimming pool, many swimmers are choosing to go for a natural approach to swimming, this simply means they swim in natural water basins. This is commonly known as wild swimming, and the landscapes of Wales allow for a wealth of open air locations to enjoy the wild swimming experience – from sparkling lakes, stunning waterfalls and picturesque rivers.
Wales Coastal Path
With 870 miles worth of path, covering the varied environment of Wales – cliff tops and sandy beaches, there are lots of potential routes to explore. Pack some snacks or maybe even a picnic and head off for an adventure.
Visit the Place with the Longest Name in the UK
Join the heaps of people trying (and failing) to pronounce the longest place name in the UK. Standing by the ridiculously long sign at the local train station has become a bit of a tourist hub, it’s dubbed an iconic Welsh selfie spot.
A day trip to towns such as Harlech, Conwy or Caernarfon wouldn’t be complete without a visit to their impressive castles. If history is your thing, you’ll love engaging with the legends and stories of theses fortresses. With lots of events happening all through the summer season, you might find yourselves caught up in a knights battle!
