Wales is very popular among hiking enthusiasts. There are many breathtaking landscapes —mountains, valleys, and meadows especially! Many routes pass through National Parks with their unique nature like Snowdonia, Pembrokeshire, and the Brecon Beacons.

June to October is a great time since the weather conditions allow for hiking or mountain climbing, despite the fact that the temperature at the tops of mountains can be cold and rainfall is a possibility.
