Location: Brecon Beacons
Walk length: Four miles
If you’ll be stopping at the Brecon Beacons, why not take on the challenge of its tallest mountain? While not quite as tall as Snowdon, Pen y Fan stands at an impressive 2,907ft. The easiest route to the top is the one the locals call ‘The Motorway’, but if you feel like a challenge there’s plenty of other ways to reach the top!
Difficulty: Medium/ difficult

Perhaps the most obvious walk you can enjoy in the Snowdonia National Park is the steep ascent to Snowdon's peak. Standing at 3,560 ft, from the top you'll get to enjoy magnificent views of the surrounding mountain ranges. Don't fancy the climb? You can always get a train to the summit!
Walk length: Eight and a half miles

The Pen Anglas Headland Walk is a short, circular path around the picturesque headlands of Pembrokeshire. The whole route should take you under two hours to complete, making it ideal for families. Along the way, you’ll enjoy beautiful views over to Cardigan Bay.
