The activity A-Z

When it comes to activities, we’ve got it covered, from A (abseiling) to Z (zip wires). In between, there’s an alphabet full of go-do outdoor activities, including all kinds of adrenaline sports (including paragliding above The World Heritage Site and exploring some of the best cave systems – always with THE experts of course), laid-back canal cruising, great golf (including the highest hole in the UK and a course around a Castle at Merthyr Tydfil), fishing, horse riding, walking and world-class mountain biking (at Afan Forest of Cwmcarn – with more to come at Gethin Woodland) and cycling along more than 400km safe, off road tracks.

Go on – there must be something that you’d love to do!!
