Wild Wales is the perfect place to get away from it all and explore nature. With some of the United Kingdom’s best hiking trails and the ever popular Snowdonia National Park (home to the highest mountain in both England and Wales), visitors have been coming to Wales for natural beauty for centuries.

However, there’s much more to this fiercely proud country. Wales’ history is laid bare in its many historic buildings and castles, which dot the landscape from beachfront to mountaintop. Its coastal paths, beaches and islands might be windswept and chilly, but they are also beautiful and tranquil.

Finally, there’s the famous Welsh welcome. Join a Welsh crowd to watch their red-shirted rugby team and you’ll soon feel like an old friend. There’s a Welsh word that sums up how many visitors feel about Wales — hiraeth, which roughly translates as a longing for home. Those leaving after a trip will know exactly how that feels.
