Mid Wales - Nestled Between Snowdonia and the valleys of Southern Wales

Nestled between the rugged Snowdonia landscape and the valleys of Southern Wales are the country roads, green pastures and charming villages and market towns of Mid Wales. Mid Wales includes the 519 miles of the Brecon Beacons National Park, home to Pen y Fan, the highest mountain in the Brecon Beacon range. The Brecon Beacons divide Southern Wales from Mid Wales. The landscape here includes snow-capped mountains, pristine mountain waterfalls and rolling hills dotted with sheep. And don't think that Mid Wales is landlocked. Charming seaside towns to the west like Aberaeron with its gaily painted Georgian buildings abound along the coastal crescent between the Southwest and the North.

To get even closer to the earth, spend a day caving at Porth yr Ogof, one of the world's longest caves. Spelunkers have been challenging themselves in its depths for years. Neophytes can go underground with experiences guides who will steer them through this fascinating world of stalagmites and stalactites, blind, incandescent fish, glittering walls of fool's gold and other amazing sites.

The Mid-Wales Town of Llanwrtyd Wells is known throughout the world as the quirky town of "Bog Snorkeling" "Ale Wobbling" and other unique sports competitions.
