Things to do in Wales
Going on a campervan holiday really opens up the whole country to you, since there are so many things to do in Wales. As you may already know, there are some really great national parks, including Snowdonia national park. This massive park set in the province with the same name is a great place to stop off on your trip to spend a day or two hiking around and just refreshing yourself by being in nature. If you are a fan of climbing, you should definitely make the hike up Snowdon, the mountain that gives the region its name. If you are in the south of Wales, you should take a trip into Cardiff.
