Outdoor activities in Wales
Wales Coast Path
A nice way to see the beauty of a country is to hike the country - and on the Wales Coast Path you have plenty of opportunity. Since this coastal path is a proud 1400 km long, it would be a bit exaggerated to want to tackle it completely - but that's not necessary because there are many sections that are worth exploring. A particularly impressive site is the Three Cliffs Bay on the Gower Peninsula in South Wales. The views from the cliffs are breathtaking. Equally impressive is the area around Llansteffan Castle, the famous castle ruin that sits picturesquely above the sea cliffs. If you're travelling further north and want to explore a stretch of the Wales Coast Path, the area around the South Stack Lighthouse on Anglesey Island is a great alternative.

Canoeing / White Water Rafting
Exploring Wales from the water is a particularly impressive way to get to know the country. If you like it more relaxed, you could "let yourself drift" in a canoe - you can go canoeing in Wales on lakes, rivers or even on the coast. Faster and more action-packed is the White Water Rafting, here you can go in a big dinghy down a river passage - those who are not afraid to get wet should try the White Water Rafting.
Wales is surrounded by water from three sides. No wonder, then, that outdoor activities on and in the sea play a major role. And coasteering takes place right here - on and in the sea. Already 30 years ago, the first Welsh started to offer coasteering tours and have been doing pioneer work in this field ever since. But what exactly is coasteering? Some vendors describe it as "fun in the waves and on rocks"; Coasteering is essentially a mix of cliff diving, swimming and surfing. It sounds pretty sophisticated and daring, but in fact, it's fun and adventure for the whole family because there are different levels and the whole tour is led and supervised by an experienced guide. And with a little luck, you might even see a few seals in some coastal areas.
Bounce Below / Zip World Titan
"Bounce Below" is a unique experience that can hardly be compared to anything else. Strictly speaking, it can only be limited to the outdoor activities, because this adventure takes place in a huge cave. In "Bounce Below" you'll find yourself on huge, connected by tunnel slides, arranged on different levels with trampolines. You shouldn't be afraid of heights to really enjoy the jumping and falling, because the trampolines hang up to 50 meters above the ground. To make the whole thing really colorful, different-colored lighting effects create a club feel. If you prefer action above the surface, you will find it in Zip World Titan. Here you can "fly over" a disused mine hooked up to wire ropes.
