Tour of Wales, UK

Join us for a tour of Wales to experience the history, culture and outstanding natural beauty. You can almost feel the past around you in today's Wales. There are 750 miles of coastline and 641 castles.

There are three National Parks in Wales covering an area of 4122 sq km.  This represents approximately 20% of the land area of Wales.  National Parks were created to protect the most beautiful and imposing landscapes in the UK.   The three National Parks in Wales are Snowdonia, Pembrokeshire Coast and the Brecon Beacons.

Snowdonia - there are 100 lakes in Snowdonia National Park, 90 mountain peaks, 37 miles of pristine coastline and beaches, moors and wetlands and it has the tallest mountain in Wales.

Pembrokeshire Coast - it is unique in Britain as the only National Park that is predominantly coastal. The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park covers approximately 240 square miles around the beautiful West Coast of Wales.

Brecon Beacons National Park in Wales - the skyscrapers are imposing sandstone bluffs over 470 million years old. The modern architecture is valleys and lakes formed by the last ice age and the traffic is sheep, hikers and the odd mountain pony.
