Wales Cities and Regions


Over 830-square-miles of national parkland comprises Snowdonia and encompasses two of Wales’ highest mountains (Glyderau and Carneddau). The northernmost mountains – Moel Hebog, Mynydd Mawr, and Nantlle Ridge – are the most hikeable.

Brecon Beacons

The Brecon Beacons National Park in mid-Wales spans some of Europe’s most diverse landscapes, including rolling hills, wooded valleys, the famous 88-foot Henrhyd Waterfall, and the Ogof Ffynnon Ddu caves.


The Welsh capital is known for its strong cultural and sporting heritage. Recently the beneficiary of radical investment, it now contains both the National Assembly and the Wales Millenium Center.


This national park-dominated maritime county is surrounded by the sea on three sides. Musts include the charming, wildlife-filled islands of Skomer, Ramsey, and Caldey just off the coast.


Swansea is famous for its clean beaches and rugged coastline, especially along the Gower Peninsula. Many notable shipwrecks are strewn along the coast.

Vale of Glamorgan

Characterized by rolling green hills and handsome villages, this area is also known for yellow cliffs and attractions like the Vale of Glamorgan Railway and St. Donat’s Castle.
