Wild camping expedition through North Pembrokeshire
Intrepid explorers will be in their element on this three-night break in North Pembrokeshire.
During the day you will walk up to 14 miles, while come evening, you will set up camp at campsites in the great outdoors.
After three days you will probably be in need of a long hot bath, but you will forget about that once you set sight on the scenery and wildlife here.
Think of Wales and you will probably conjure up images of Welsh male-voice choirs, rolling hills dotted with cotton-wool-like sheep, and perhaps a freshly-griddled Welsh cake. It may well be a small country, but it's definitely got a big heart. Not even the typical Welsh weather can dampen the spirits when you are faced with the dramatic scenery of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
Ancient burial chambers stud hillsides, sandy beaches hug the coastline, and dense woodland shelters all manner of wildlife. Hiking here is not just any old walk in the park Walking in North Pembrokeshire serves up a huge array wildlife, landscapes and history. The cliffs around Strumble Head are popular with seabirds, while out to sea, seals, porpoises – and even whales – have been spotted. Back on dry land, you can take your pick from prehistoric monuments and tiny chapels along the headland close to Fishguard. And St David's - the smallest city in Britain with a cathedral that dates back to 1200 has drawn crowds since the Middle Ages.
