Wales – famed for its pubs, food and friendly welcome. Think bracing surf, mystic castles, stuff of legend and a majestic landscape and it’s only half the story. Chuck in a few literary greats and some gorgeous camping, and a 7-day tour of Wales in one of our VW California Camper Vans is never going to be quite long enough.
First stop is the capital city of Cardiff, Europe’s Capital of Sport 2014. See the bay, step into its castles or stop off for a bit of retail therapy. Then make headway for Swansea, gateway to the Gower. Perfect for a walk and a dip in the bracing surf. Don’t miss spectacular Rhossili and park up at beautiful Three Cliffs Bay Caravan Park where you can watch the sun set over the sea from your Kamper.
Mystic Carmarthenshire is home to castles of legend such as Laugharne and Kidwell, and is also Dylan Thomas country. Brecon and its Beacons will warrant an explore from the prettily named Faerie Thyme campsite before you take to rugged North Wales. It’s here you’ll discover the mountain town of Dolgellau in the heart of Snowdonia before setting up camp under Cader Idris at Graig Wen. Then drive the Kamper through dramatic mountain scenes to Llandudno and Conwy – home to Blue Flag beaches and World Heritage castles – before heading back to our Hampshire HQ.
