The Coastal Way
From the Llŷn Peninsula to Pembrokeshire. Or as locals know it, from the ear of the boar all the way down to the tip of his nose. Take a look at a map of Wales to see if you can spot this similarity for yourself!
Wales is actually the first place in the world to have a dedicated coastal path along its entire coastline, and what a coastline it is. The crystal clear waters of Cardigan Bay are home to the largest population of bottlenose dolphins in all of Europe. It’s many coves and secluded beaches are home to some of it’s rarest and most endangered wildlife and marine life in the country.
The Coastal Way is a fabulous route showcasing the most beautiful coastline in the UK also hides some of the most Wales most secret natural treasures.
The Cambrian Way
Travel down through the heart of Wales, following its mountainous spine from North to South.
From the picture-postcard Victorian resort town of Llandudno, through the outskirts of the majestic Snowdonia National Park and down along the Cambrian Mountains to our beautiful capital city of Cardiff – via the Brecon Beacons – one of only 13 Certified IDA International Dark Sky Reserves in the WORLD.
The Cambrian Way is a mythical journey through the ancient Welsh countryside which will leave you with stories to tell for generations to come.
The North Wales Way
The shortest of these routes is arguably the most jam-packed of the experiences. North Wales is perfectly accessible from many major airports, yet remote enough to make you feel as though you’re the first person to unearth its treasures.
The North Wales Way spans from the North easternmost tip of Wales, home to one of our greatest feats – The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pontcysyllte Aqueduct in Llangollen. A beautiful journey along the North Wales coast skirts around the Snowdonia National Park, taking in epic fortresses and castles before finishing at our most beautiful Island, Anglesey, home of fresh lobster, mussels and, of course, the longest place name Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (don’t worry – even we usually call it Llanfair PG!)
Now if that’s not enough to have you raring to book your next self-drive or guided tour to Wales – over the next few weeks we’ll be breaking things down with our definitive guide to each of the Wales Ways.
