For Explorers


You love a challenge. You’re only happy when you’re off the beaten track. What really motivates you is the thought of a new experience. You’re an Explorer.


And we bet you’d like to have a go at this.


1. Take the 15km Cli-machx trail out of Machynlleth and fire yourself down the longest mountain biking descent in Wales.

2. Walk behind a curtain of falling water at Sgwyd yr Eira, or “Fall of Snow”, in the Waterfalls Country of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

3. Go bog snorkelling, wrestle in a pool full of gravy or challenge a horse to a marathon at Llanwrtyd Wells, the world capital of bizarre sports.

4. Create fire by friction, carve tools, forage for wild foods and generally come over all Bear Grylls at Red Dragon Bushcraft near Llanidloes.

5. Walk all 177 miles of Offa’s Dyke Path National Trail – or just the bit that passes through “Offa’s Country” between Hay-on-Wye and Welshpool.

6. Tug on the lycra and tackle the challenging 84-mile Radnor Ring cycle route that links Llandrindod Wells, Rhayader, Knighton and Kington.

7. Ride the 3km-long Sky Trek zip line at Llangorse Multi Activity Centre.

8. Power slide a rally-prepared car through the forest tracks of the Phil Price Rally School at Llangunllo or the Higgins Rally School at Carno.

9. Canoe down the beautiful River Wye – navigable for more than 100 miles if your arms are up to it.

10. Ride a Welsh Cob pony from one side of Wales to the other with Cwmfforest Riding Centre at Talgarth – and celebrate with a gallop.
