Wales is home to some of the UK’s highest mountains making it a mecca for extreme sports fans. The Snowdonia range in North Wales is breathtaking beautiful and includes Wales’ highest peak, Snowdon at 1,085 metres. Base yourself in the Snowdonia National Park for an activity weekend filled with abseiling, rock climbing and hiking in Snowdonia’s rugged peaks.
Further south is the wide open spaces of The Brecon Beacons, a mountain range which includes the highest peak in Southern Britain, Pen y Fan and 3 other noticeable summits, Corn Du, Cribyn and Fan y Big. The summits form a long ridge called the ‘Beacons Horseshoe’ around the Taf Fechan River which is popular with walkers and mountain bikers. Other activities you can do in the park on an activity holiday include caving, rock climbing, horse riding, kayaking and canoeing.
The Clwdian Range is a chain of hills in the north east of Wales. Its uplands are wild country that contrasts with lush green valleys. Perfect for an activity weekend filled with hiking, horse riding, abseiling and mountain biking.
