Sheep-strewn mountains and leafy conservation areas make up a large portion of the country, with national parks Snowdonia,
the Pembrokeshire Coast and the Brecon Beacons offering beautiful rambling trails and mountain biking routes.

while up and down the Welsh shore, deserted coves and secluded stretches are just around the corner for those willing to explore.
