Wales is a country part of the island of Great Britain and of the United Kingdom. Apart from the classic rock climbing locations, the Gower, to the south of Swansea, is the second largest rock climbing area in South Wales. North Wales also offers a great depth and variety of bouldering. Wales is also a scrambling mecca and a hiking paradise. It also boasts some fantastic beaches, very popular among surfers. The heart of the Welsh culture is full of Celtic myths, castles and historical legends. A trip to Wales wouldn’t be complete without visiting a traditional pub, where you can enjoy live music, great food and beer.
Wales has an essentially maritime climate. Weather is often cloudy, cool, wet and windy, but mild most of the year. Snowdonia has a temperate maritime climate. Summers here are typically warm rather than hot, whereas winters are cool to cold. As in the rest of UK, the weather is unpredictable and you can see elements of all four seasons in one day.

You can easily reach Cardiff Airport from the rest of the UK and continental Europe. From outside Europe, there are no direct flights to Wales. The best option is flying into London (Heathrow or Gatwick) and taking a connection flight to Cardiff from there. Otherwise you could also continue overland from London. If you are visiting North Wales, Manchester is better placed.
June to October is the warmest and driest period to enjoy a climbing trip. For reasonably good weather and less crowds, you should visit in April-May and September-October. If you are planning to spend some time on the beach or camping, you should visit between June and September.
