Best Walking Routes in Wales

Wales is a wonderful place to walk, with a wild and diverse landscape offering everything from coastal routes and remote countryside to mountain scrambles and long-distance backpacking trails.

Snowdonia National Park is the most popular place to walk in Wales, with many visitors heading for the summit of Snowdon, the highest mountain in England and Wales at 1085 metres. Tryfan, The Glyderau and The Carneddau are great peaks to hike too, located right in the heart of the most dramatic scenery in North Wales.

In the south of the country, the Brecon Beacons National Park offers a different type of walking challenge. Their shapely mountains climb to a height of 886 metres on the distinctive flat-topped summit of Pen y Fan, but this is a landscape for spectacular hillwalking rather than challenging mountain terrain.

If it’s coastal trails, golden-sand beaches and cliff-top walks you like, head for Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, the only Park in Britain to be designated due its impressive coastline. Wales is also famous for its green valleys, diverse wildlife, fascinating history and wonderful local culture.
