Get Active in Wales Tour
4 days/4 nights
June 3-6 or June 10-14
It's rare to find three national parks and five designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty
in a country the size of Massachusetts but in Wales you'll discover unique landscapes and a
world of outdoor adventure.
(Pre- Tour) Arrive into Manchester Airport where you will be met by your guide.
(Post- Tour) You will be collected from your Cardiff Hotel by your guide.
Day Two - Walking the Wales Coast Path
Wales is blessed with over 800 miles of stunning coastline and May 2012 will see
the completion of the Wales Coast Path, a continuous path around the entire coastline of Wales.
The path takes in some spectacular scenery from towns & villages to tiny hamlets, cliff tops
to sandy beaches. As you walk a section of the path you will experience some of the most
spectacular scenery Wales has to offer. Don't worry--we wont expect you to walk the whole thing!
Day Three - Mountain Biking Experience
Wales has some fantastic world-class mountain biking facilities that offer fantastic
riding for everyone, from families to the world-class racers and 2012 will see the opening
of new mountain biking facilities following considerable investment over recent years.
You will cycle the 'Afon' trail at Coed y Brenin, Dolgellau--a mecca for mountain bikers.
The route is a gentle introduction to mountain biking and offers spectacular scenery of the
Snowdonia National Park including the picturesque Mawddach Estuary and the old Welsh Gold Mines
Rock Climbing Experience
Mother Nature has been hugely generous to Wales, endowing it with alluring,
craggy mountains. The Snowdonia range in North Wales is breathtaking beautiful and
includes Wales' highest peak, Snowdon at 1,085 metres. This is where Sir Edmund Hillary
honed his skills before scaling Everest. This fantastic landscape makes Wales one of the UK's
top places to go rock climbing and abseiling.
A fully qualified climbing instructor will teach you the basics, provide all the equipment
you need, and then let you put the theory into practice on the local crags and mountains.
Day Four - Coastal Explorer Day
You will experience a mix of sea based activities off the coast to include sit-on-top
kayaking, coasteering, snorkelling and fishing. You'll discover hidden coves, explore dark caves
and sandy beaches, and hopefully get to see the wildlife above and below the water.
During your coastal explorer trip we will experience the sport of Coasteering, a breathtaking
combination of rock scrambling and cliff jumping (cliff jumping isn't compulsory, although the
guides will do their best to persuade you to give it a try).
You will eat lunch on an otherwise inaccessible beach or cove. During the day you are more than
likely to have some interaction with the local wildlife. The Welsh coastline is home to some
magnificent wildlife including seals, Orca Whales, Puffins, Razorbills and one of only two
colonies of Bottlenose Dolphins in the UK.
Day Five - Morning Departure
Accommodation and meals will be included. Participants should advise if they have any
dietary restrictions or food allergies. Itinerary is subject to change.
