Wales is fast becoming one of the UK’s leading adventure capitals:
Here 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. Our mountain bike centres, at places like Coed-y-Brenin and Bike Park Wales, are some of the best in the world and you can paddleboard, kayak and raft in the heart of our capital city. And Wales’s three National Parks, endless mountain ranges and 870 mile (1,400km) of coastline offer challenging walks and hikes for all ages, all abilities.
Adventure travel in Wales also means much more than adrenaline – it means discovering new and
unusual places, watching wildlife, and stargazing in our Dark Sky reserves. You can watch dolphins and red kites, forage for edible foods, and decamp to celebrations like the world-famous Hay Festival.
You can take part in our celebrations to mark the Centenary of Roald Dahl, born in Cardiff and a great champion of magical adventures. And you can take a 2,000 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…

Wales is where the adventure starts in 2016 – so join us to embrace the adventurer in you.
