Snowdon, Snowdonia

With many routes up this iconic mountain, it’s hard to know which to choose. This route heads up to the summit via Moel Eilio, Foel Gron, Foel Goch and Moel Cynghorion before heading back down the Llanberis Path.

Nantgwynant, Gwynedd

Discover the legend of Gelert and Prince Llywelyn, which gave the village of Beddgelert its name and explore the tumbledown remnants of Gwytherin’s fortress at Dinas Emrys, with a great viewpoint over the valley.

Ystradfellte, Powys

Starting in Ystradfellte, our route takes in the four dramatic waterfalls, one of which you can even walk behind. Look out for Porth yr Ogof on this route, one of the most impressive cave entrances in Britain.
   

Newgale to St Davids, Pembrokeshire

This route heads along Pembrokeshire's glorious coast path from Newgale to St David’s via the picturesque Solva Village. Stop to admire impressive views over Solva's splendid harbour and the cathedral of St David's.

Rhossili, Swansea

Rhossili is up there with some of the world’s most beautiful coastal locations. This walk showcases its postcard-pretty sights from some of the Gower’s most breathtaking viewpoints before taking you along sand and surf.

Tryfan North Ridge

Easily identified from miles around by its impressive fin shape, Tryfan offers an exhilarating climb. This route, which is classed as a grade one scramble, heads up the North Ridge taking in Adam and Eve and the Cannon Stone.

Pen-y-Fan, Powys

Our Pen Y Fan route splices together the most dramatic views the massif has to offer. It’s a challenging day’s walk, taking in Cribyn and Corn Du, but on a clear day it’s truly spectacular.
   

Amlwch, Anglesey

Want to experience the beauty of the Anglesey Coastal Path but don’t have time to walk the whole thing? Try this stretch, from Amlwch to Moelfre, taking in pretty coves, impressive rock formations, and nature reserves.

Offa's Dyke, Gwent

The Offa’s Dyke Path is one of our beautiful National Trails, well worth walking in its entirety. But if you don’t have time, enjoy one of the circular routes along the path, like this one.
