Some of the most unspoilt and rural countryside in Wales can be found at Cardigan Bay on Wales's west coast. It provides the perfect place for seeing bottlenose dolphins, porpoises and grey seals. And with the frequent boat trips that operate in the bay it's possible to get up `close and personal' with these amazing marine mammals.
Inland, walking trails abound across the countryside which is perfect for visiting the number of nature reserves that occur in this area and for mountain bikers a 35km mountain biking trail can be found high in the Cambrian Mountains.
In the east of the region lies the Wye Valley, which is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and covers some 72 miles of the River Wye. Two national trails and over 1000 miles of public footpaths criss cross rivers, gentle rolling hills and more strenuous mountains. The River Wry is famed for its salmon and trout making it a popular place for anglers.
