Wales is a great destination for fans of the great outdoors, with amazing coastline, mountains and rivers.

 

In addition to great hiking and cycling opportunities, such as the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and the Celtic Way, there are also kayaking, rafting and go-karting spots around the country. Head to Bala Lake in Snowdonia National Park and you can sail, canoe and swim to your heart’s content.

 

There is also white water rafting to be done at the nearby National White Water Rafting Centre, which takes you down a river made by water released from a dam, and you can race go karts at GYG Karting a short drive from Bala itself.

 

Adrenaline junkies will love the zip lines at Zip World, which boasts the world’s fastest zip line. Hold on tight as you zoom over the disused slate quarries below. For high-altitude thrills, try skydiving at the Gower Peninsula, with prices starting from $260 for a tandem jump.

 

In Wales you don’t need to be by the sea to go surfing, thanks to Surf Snowdonia, an inland lagoon kitted out with an artificial wave machine. You can hire a board, wetsuit and anything else you need on site, too.
