Off the coast of Wales, Ramsey Island features high sea cliffs and a wondrous natural habitat. Spot gray seal colonies on the beaches during the fall and early winter. As a cultural destination, Ramsey Island is a holy site for its connection with Saint David, the Welsh patron saint. © Acceleratorhams | Dreamstime.com

The rugged Welsh countryside is crisscrossed by a huge number of trails that make hiking a top attraction for visitors to the country.


One of the biggest challenges for hikers is Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales. There are various routes of different difficulties, and most take a few hours to complete. It’s well worth the climb for the amazing views from the top.


For serious hikers who want to really push themselves, check out the Three Peaks Challenge: climbing Snowdon, Cadair Idris and Pen y Fan in just 24 hours. It’s tough, but definitely doable if you have a decent level of fitness.


More great hiking is to be had in the Brecon Beacons National Park in south Wales, where Pen y Fan is found. More gentle hikes take in the Monmouthshire canal and the waterfalls of the Usk valley.


Feel the salt in the air on a hike along the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, which can be completed in 15 days. Alternatively, there are around 200 short circuits for those who only have a few days to spare.


Another top coastal spot is the Gower peninsula, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The city of Swansea makes a great base for exploring the 15-mile peninsula, with its ragged cliffs around Port Eynon and saltmarshes at North Gower.
