While Scotland might have more famous nature-centric destinations, Wales has a world of gorgeous natural areas that are worth discovering too. This sparsely populated green country is a real paradise if you are looking to check out some fantastic outdoor destinations. Wales’ three national parks are a great gateway to discovering its natural bounty, and here’s a little bit about each of them!

Snowdonia National Park

Perhaps the most magical place in all of Wales is the region of Snowdonia, located in the northwest portion of the country. Peaks over 3,000 feet high as well as lakes and landscapes created by glaciers are some of the marvels you’ll find in this spectacular area.

Brecon Beacons National Park

The south of Wales has its own spectacular mountain-centric national park in Brecon Beacons. Gentle peaks make this a prime destination for hikers, who will find a surprising number of sunny, pleasant days to enjoy the clean air and majestic views of the sea and inland Wales.

Pembrokeshire Coast National Park

The westernmost part of Wales is the home of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, a protected area that hosts some of the most beautiful coasts in the world. Natural arches, tiny, protected inlets, and virgin beaches are explorable by foot and accessible to all in this gorgeous spot.
