It is no wonder that the three National Parks of Wales are those most visited in the British Isles. With the dramatic and wild landscapes of Snowdonia, the more gentle mountain ranges and over 260 ancient monuments of the Brecon Beacons and the stunning coastline of the Pembrokeshire Coast there is something for everyone.
The recent review, commissioned by National Parks Wales, the Local Authorities and Natural Resources Wales, showed that each park was visited by over 4 million people each year. And with 30,000 people working within the parks boundaries these are very much living landscapes, protecting precious habitats and steeped in history and tradition.
The National Parks cover a fifth of Wales and there are plenty of opportunities for a whole range of different outdoor activities. From walking to lama trekking, white-water rafting to coasteering, all ages can enjoy getting out and about for memorable holidays in the clean, fresh air of the great outdoors and surrounded by beautiful scenery.
