Wales, although only a small country, contains some of the most interesting and varied scenery in the World. The North Wales Snowdonia range of mountains contain the highest peaks in Wales reaching to over 3,000 feet, and where Snowdonia meets the sea it is doubly spectacular.
The Edwardian castles of Conwy, Caernarfon, Harlech and Beaumaris are all World Heritage Inscribed Sites and the magnificent 700 year old Chirk Castle has been lived in continuously since it was built.
The Welsh coastline has many resorts with sandy beaches and picturesque harbours, the Victorian resort of Llandudno being the largest. Llangollen hosts the International Musical Eisteddfod in July each year, which is just one of the many famous and much-enjoyed events in the country.
2017 is the official ‘Year of Legends’, which will celebrate the epic past, present and future of Wales. The ancient landscape, with thousands of years of history and mythical tales makes for an incredibly interesting area in which you can explore. Last year proved that Wales is the “go-to” destination for adventure activities – and this year will display the rich history.
