The Tour of Wales



Gallery: Views of Wales

Crib Goch

Crib Goch is perhaps the most dangerous ascent of the highest peak in England and Wales - Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa). Despite the fact that this peak is small by international standards, it remains treacherous and each year climbers lose their lives there through being ill equipped for the ascent. Those who do climb this mountain are rewarded (on a clear day) with panoramic views from Anglesey in the north to the southern tip of the Cardigan bay in the south. It is reputed that it is possible to see Ireland from the summit also, but I cannot confirm the validity of that claim.


The Usk Valley

This is a typical autumn scene in Wales, mists hanging in the valleys long into the mornings, a rewarding sight for those fortunate enough to be travelling Welsh roads in September or October.

Devil's Bridge (Pontarfynach) near Aberystwyth

So named because surely only the devil would have made such a bridge! This is in fact not one brifge but three, each built succesively larger and wider. The view from the bridge down the Rheidol valley is spectacular.


A quiet seaside town, typical of those all along the Welsh coast. Tenby is close to the industrial south of Wales but retains an unspoilt charm

Surfing in Aberystwyth

Surfing is not just for those living in California or the South Pacific! There are plenty of good surfing beaches throughout south and mid Wales.
    This particular reef consists of a glacial moraine (debris left by a retreating glaciar) and is situated next to Aberystwyth harbour entrance (a special test of skill for boat owners!)

Aberystwyth Sunset

There are many of these!
