Wales has the coast and countryside as well as the stunning mountain ranges and scenic views and even great city locations. So, whatever kind of break you’re after – from caravans to city nights – you can be sure to find it in Wales.
Here are our completely different things to do in Wales that simply cannot be missed.
If you’re looking for a relaxing holiday in a tranquil spot surrounded by natural beauty, then you will love a holiday in one of Wales’ caravan parks. Forget camping and waking up in a field; you can have the adventurous holiday exploring the mountains and vastly beautiful countryside and still come back to the luxury a caravan can provide each night.
The caravan parks on the striking North Wales beachfront are popular at any time of year, especially those around the Cambrian Mountains and Cardigan Bay. Not only do they have a stunning natural backdrop, but they are perfectly located for you to explore North Wales and discover what this wonderful country has to offer – history and scenery and everything in between.
Caravans these days are so much more than those our parents were accustomed to. Packed full of all mod-cons, they have everything you need including a lounge area with sofa, comfortable seating and a table for meals and quality family time over a board game or two. With plenty of storage space for the whole family, caravans provide the luxury of a hotel stay with the location of camping, readily available for exploring in no time.
Wales can provide the perfect holiday that can be packed full of fun activities, whether you enjoy walking, sight-seeing or tourist attractions. Snowdonia is a region in north-west Wales that is concentrated around the mountains and glacial landforms of Snowdonia National Park.
Aberglaslyn Pass is a narrow gorge of stunning beauty in North Wales. Llyn Crafnant is a stunning lake nestled in a valley in North Wales where the northern edge of the Gwydir Forest meets the lower slopes of the Carneddau Mountains.
Snowdon itself is perfect for mountain sight-seeing, walking and climbing. It is the highest mountain in Wales at an elevation of 1, 085 metres above sea level, as well as the highest point in the British Isles south of the Scottish Highlands. It is a perfect opportunity for a challenge in your hiking boots, but make sure you prepare yourself for the climb.
In the remote beauty of a country like Wales, you can be sure to unwind and truly relax on a spa break. Take a moment away from your busy and stressful day-to-day life for some you time!
Lake Vyrnwy Hotel and spa provides all the usual relaxations that come from a spa but also has the views to match. There are spectacular landscapes visible from the spa’s pool of the lake and mountains, as well as treatments like facials, massages, wraps and hand or foot therapies. You can also partake in a host of other activities such as country walks, clay pigeon shooting or fishing. Doesn’t that sound like bliss?
A city break in wales can offer spectacular shopping, museums, dining and entertainment for all the family. The capital Cardiff has lots to do including top class entertainment with the free National Museum of Cardiff, the impressive Principality Stadium and spectacular Cardiff Castle.
Cardiff Bay offers excellent entertainment with its restaurants, waterside views and the Wales Millennium Centre. A city break in Cardiff is bound to tick all the boxes and the food and drink the city provides is remarkable.
Whether you’re sipping a cocktail in one of Cardiff’s happening bar’s, slurping a beer in one of Cardiff’s pub’s midst of the buzz and banter or enjoying a romantic meal in one of Cardiff’s exquisite restaurants, you’ll be having a great time.
Whatever kind of break you go for, you can discover authentic Wales and fall in love with the attractive location that is rapidly becoming one of Europe’s adventure capitals.
