Afan Valley

Known as the heart and soul of Wales, The Valleys of South Wales are a must-see destination, with Afan Valley in the very heart. A region of breathtaking natural beauty, Afan Valley is set amongst densely wooded forests and glorious countryside offering picture perfect views.

Untouched by urbanisation, this peaceful region of Wales is made up of a string of small villages, creating the perfect setting for a holiday escape. Designated a Forest Park in 1972 thanks to its lush landscape and stunning setting, this picture perfect region of South Wales is now a magnet for tourists who flock to visit the many walk and bike routes that scatter the vibrant green valley. So much so, the area has now evolved into a hugely popular destination for outdoor activity and has become a premier destination for world class mountain biking.

Named in the top ten places in the world to ‘ride before you die’, the park is home to four world class mountain bike trails and two family friendly routes, offering something for both amateur and more experienced bikers alike.

Of course traversing around on two wheels is not the only way to discover the area and there are a variety of other outdoor pursuits to enjoy including nature rambles and hikes, horse riding, kayaking, caving, climbing, gorge walking and fishing.
