Camping and Hiking in Wales | Backpacking Wales
Hiking in Wales: Wales is home to some of the friendliest hiking routes the UK has to offer and this is primarily down to the local communities of Wales.
While bordered by England, the temperament and pace of Welsh life is more leisurely, relaxed and inviting to those who wish to hike and explore this stunning country.
What is Wales Like?
With a rich history tapered throughout the vales and valleys, Wales is almost like an island isolated from the stress and strains of a modern world.
As a country with a stereotypical image, it prides itself with proving itself to be the perfect host to visitors.
Bonds and relationships throughout communities are strong and long lasting and the sense of trust and importance that this will always remain is hard to find anywhere else in the UK.
Getting Around Wales
To visit Wales, one has the option of the larger city staying in Cardiff which makes a great starting point to any hike along the coast.
The rural depths must be explored, from camping in the craggy hillsides to long hikes which can fly by with just the company of glorious scenery and the odd sheep!
Surrounded by sandy beaches and coastlines, there are plenty of opportunities for water based activities to take place, from surfing to more extreme sports that require space and quiet reserve.
Go Local in Wales
A strong university vein runs through the Welsh culture with many UK students spending their late educational years in trusted establishments such as Bangor University.
Extremely passionate about sports, Wales is a country which can hold its own against the best rugby nations in the world and as a national pastime, each game is met like a centennial celebration.
If you are hiking or camping in Wales a day trip to one of the many sporting events is well advised and great to meet the locals.
Cardiff Castle is high on the list of tourist destinations, as is the world renowned Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (try saying that when asking for directions!).
A geographical map of Wales may look like vast empty spaces of hills and valleys with towns and villages scattered around, but it is in fact a treasure map for the avid explorer of adventure.
