Wales Walks

Updated on August 12, 2011

Wales Walks

Wales walks is a selection of walking routes I have completed in the beautiful country of Wales. The best walks including walking routes in the North and South of the country. In the North I covered quite a few walks in and around Mount Snowdon which included the PYG Track, the Miners Track and the Llanberis Path. For gentler walking I also walked in and around Porthmadog and the delightful Italian Hill Village of Portmeirion.

Further South I stayed in Swansea which is extremely close to the coastal walks of the Gower Peninsula and the rugged mountain walks of the Brecon Beacons. The Gower Peninsula is reached from where we stayed in Swansea, walking around the bay to the pier and then around again further along the coastal walking route finding such delights as Criccieth Castle.

Wales is famous for its Welsh Waterfalls and I found many of them when walking in Wales. Henrhyd Falls is perhaps the most well known but there are quite a few and some offer the opportunity of walking right behind the waterfalls which are hidden away in the marvellous forestry walks and ancient woodlands of Wales and the Brecons.

For more adventurous mountain walks there are many peaks to conquer and Table Mountain was a good place to start and as well as enjoying the Brecon Beacons for walking I also managed a trip on the well preserved Brecon Beacons Mountain Railway.

Walking in the Brecon Beacons, the Welsh Waterfalls, Snowdon and the Gower Peninsula are more suited to the average to adventurous walker and does require some experience of walking as there are many rough tracks, rocky climbs and steep and slippery slopes. You really need a good quality pair of walking boots for all the hiking and walking accessories such as walking poles are also recommended, even if they stay in your rucksack. Specialist trekking clothes are required for the mountains and as the weather can change quite quickly you really need to pack a full rucksack of walking clothes and a really good waterproof walking jacket with extra hats and gloves for the colder months.

Please visit my Walks And Walking website for more walks in Wales and even more UK walks which are all free to read, print, walk and share.

Happy and Safe Walking!
