There are some winter days when it feels as though the sun will never return. But, despite weeks of rain and snow, spring is definitely on the horizon. As the daffodils return, the air grows milder, and the days grow longer, we can finally start to make some plans for getaways around the country.
If you’re wondering how to make the best of those soon-to-arrive spring and summer days, look no further. We’ve put together a guide to some fantastic adventure days out in beautiful Wales, which are well suited to families, groups of friends, couples and solo travellers.


With its rolling green hills and beautiful coastlines, Wales is the perfect destination for a walking holiday. Whether you’re seeking a gentle amble along a short scenic trail, or a challenging hike up to a hilltop peak, Wales will have the ideal route. You can wander through the beautiful open landscapes of the Brecon Beacons, hike along the historic Glyndwr’s Way, or explore the historic sites of Anglesey on foot. Of course, for ultimate sea views, you’ll want to take to the Wales Coast Path, where you can enjoy 870 miles of unspoilt coastline. Walking in Wales is an activity to be enjoyed by absolutely everyone.


For travellers seeking more of a challenge, Wales is the ideal spot for coasteering. This activity combines swimming, diving, jumping, climbing, scrambling and canyoning, and will give you a novel – and truly pulse-pounding – way of exploring the coastline of Wales. With experienced guides on hand and plenty of safety equipment in tow, coasteering is perfectly safe – which means it’s a great activity for families with adventurous children. If you’re keen to try it, you’ll want to head to Pembrokeshire on Wales’ southwest coast.


What better way to spend a sunny day in May than by hitting the links for a few holes? In Wales, golf is an incredibly popular pastime – and our courses are some of the best in the world. With so many fantastic golf hotels dotted around the country (many of which come with spas and award-winning restaurants), you’ll be spoilt for choice. For the ultimate golf getaway in Wales, pick a seaside course with fantastic views such as Aberdovey, Royal Porthcawl, or Pennard, where, on the seventh hole, you'll have to negotiate some 12th century ruins…


Wales is a country with a huge coastline and hundreds of rivers and lakes. In other words, not only does it boast some of the most beautiful places on the planet, it’s also the ideal destination for a fishing holiday. For wild coarse fishing, head for a big expanse of water, such as Llyn Maelog on Anglesey or Llangorse Lake in the Brecon Beacons. For game fishing, the Rivers Wye and Usk are your ideal stomping ground. As for sea fishing, you’ll want to plan a getaway to Pembrokeshire and the Llyn Peninsula – two areas of outstanding natural beauty that are also perfect for catching pollock, bass and even shark!
