The Wales Way is a historic national route taking in three areas of the country – the West Coast, North Wales, and through Wales’ mountainous heartland. Spilt into three memorable journeys, The Cambrian Way, The Coastal Way and The North Wales Way, it includes a wide variety of unmissable landmarks and attractions.
Firstly, the Cambrian Way covers the north to the south route of the country between Llandudno and Cardiff and is perhaps the most complete route of the three. Winding through two National Parks and the Cambrian Mountains, adventure seekers will thrive here as it takes in great opportunities for mountain biking, zip lining and hiking.
The 180-mile Coastal Way runs through the entire length of Cardigan Bay, starting at Aberaeron and ending at the UK’s smallest city; St David’s. The route winds its way through a protected Heritage Coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and includes plenty of seaside favourites such as sandy beaches, harbour towns and towering castles.
The North Wales Way runs for 75 miles along the coast and is a terrific way to discover the northern hinterlands. While exploring Snowdonia, the Isle of Anglesey and the Vale of Conwy, those on this route will come across quaint resort towns, steep mountains and of course, a beautiful landscape.
