Wales – South Wales 8 day Cycling Tour

This biking vacation in Wales follows the wonderful Pembrokeshire coastline, sections of which are a national park. The region of Pembrokeshire is in South West Wales. Not only is the scenery simply stunning but the region also has a number of historic attractions such as Pembroke castle. A castle was first built in the town of Pembroke in the 11th century.  Carew Castle is also from the 11th century but was then rebuilt in stone in the 14th century. The most famous historic landmark on the route though is St David’s Cathedral, a vast building making the small hamlet of St David’s actually a city.

Pembrokeshire is one of Wales most stunning regions, it is indeed Wales coastal national park. Although whale watching is possible along the breathtaking coastline you will most likely see dolphins and porpoises. In the north part of the tour, Cardigan Bay is a permanent residence of these fabulous creatures, here you can take boat trips to explore the sea life. The coastline is also a haven for great birdlife. Inland the national park opens to homes for badgers and otters although they can be particularly hard to spot. Not only will you cycle on some safe cycleways but also on minor country lanes as you take a circular route around the region.
