The Wales Way

Introduction

The Wales Way is a family of three national routes that lead visitors along the west coast, across North Wales, and through Wales’ mountainous heartland. 

The routes highlight unmissable attractions and uniquely Welsh experiences along the way: natural wonders, landmarks, towns, galleries and museums.

This is The Wales Way.

 


The Cambrian Way

The Cambrian Way is a complete north-south journey from Llandudno to Cardiff along the spine of Wales. At 185 miles (300km) long, it winds through two National Parks – Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons – with the Cambrian Mountains in-between. 

 

There are long-distance walking, cycling and horse-riding trails, which connect with the Wales Coast Path and Offa’s Dyke Path.

 


The Coastal Way

 

The Coastal Way runs the entire length of Cardigan Bay. It’s a 180-mile (290km) route. The start and end points – Aberdaron and St Davids – are both ancient pilgrimage destinations. Harbour towns, fishing villages and secret coves scatter the route.

 


The North Wales Way

 

The North Wales Way follows the old trading route along our northern coast from Holyhead to Broughton. The 75-mile (120km) trail is lined with resort towns and castles. Visitors are encouraged to explore the Vales of Clwyd and Conwy, the mountains of Snowdonia, the Menai Strait, and the isle of Anglesey.

The Visit Wales guide for the industry is now available. 

The Wales Way industry handbook has been published to assist businesses in Wales to make the most of The Wales Way. 

Those businesses along the routes play a key role in ensuring visitors have the best experience whilst they are in Wales and this guide is full of tips and guidance to help.
