Outdoors in North Wales

The myth-rich mountains and valleys of North Wales were once a hive of mines and industry; now, this landscape is a playground for hikers, bikers and thrill-seekers.

1 SURF SNOWDONIA

On the site of an old aluminium factory in the Conwy Valley, Surf Snowdonia is perhaps the most headline-stealing example of North Wales’s reinvention as an outdoors adventure hub. This 300m inland lagoon generates the world’s longest surfable man-made waves. Learn to surf or try SUP (surfsnowdonia.com; Conway Rd, Dolgarrog; 8am– 11pm; surf lesson from £55).

2 PONTCYSYLLTE AQUEDUCT

Built in 1805, the Unesco-listed Pontcysyllte Aqueduct is the highest canal aqueduct ever built. Guided tours (£3) run from near the visitor centre; canal boats offer trips along the ‘stream in the sky’ from the nearby quay and from Llangollen wharf. Or you can freely stroll across. It’s four miles east of Llangollen (pontcysyllteaqueduct.co.uk; visitor centre 10am–4pm Easter–Oct).
