Wales is jam-packed with exhilarating sites to explore and can offer something for everyone from biking the towering mountains in Snowdonia to walking along the breath-taking coastlines in West Wales.

We’ve created a list of adventure locations in Wales that are on the National Cycle Network:

1. Looking for excitement? Experience the thrill of climbing, abseiling and ziplining, all three can be done at Absolute Adventure. You can use the traffic-free sections of the Swansea Valley route to get there and make a day of it.

2. Afan Forest Park Visitor Centre has something for everyone from mountain biking, wonderful family walks, and safaris. Explore the beautiful countryside of Afan via Route 887.

3. Interested in astrology? The Elan Valley Trail will lead you to a delightful estate that’s open to stargazers. The Elan Valley Estate was awarded its status by the International Dark Sky Association due to its exceptional starry skies and natural nocturnal habitat. A unique experience for all.

4. The Bay Trail in Cardiff will take you to the International Sports Village where you can take your pick of an array of white water activities from white water rafting, surfing, gorge scrambling and river boarding. A guaranteed adrenaline boost for all who dare.  

5. Witness the wonderful wildlife of the Menai Strait. You can get there either from the incredible isle of Anglesey or the stunning North Wales Coastal Path.
