Forget what you learned in school. History in Mid Wales isn’t about what happened long ago. It’s not about dates and dusty remains. It’s about the here and now.
You can’t just read about our ancestors in books. You can see what they saw, touch what they touched, walk a mile in their shoes. Or in the case of Offa’s Dyke Path National Trail, you can walk 177 miles.
You can ride on our steam railways, sail our canals, explore our tramroads and drovers' paths. Stroll the pleasure gardens of our Victorian spa towns, marvel at the great stone dams of the Vyrnwy and Elan valleys and the landscapes they created.
It could turn out to be the most enjoyable history lesson you’ve ever had.
Bethania Adventure offers a full range of outdoor pursuits activities, on and around Lake Vyrnwy.
