Images of male voice choirs and sooty miners spring to mind when one thinks of Wales, but the mountainous principality has much to offer the traveler, including historic ruins, breathtaking scenery and vibrant Celtic festivals. Well known for its poets and musicians, Wales is indeed the land of inspiration.

On the western shore of Britain, Wales is separated from Ireland by the Irish Sea. As part of the United Kingdom, Wales can offer the traveler all the first-world comforts and conveniences, but one may easily forget the existence of the modern world in the wilds of the Snowdonia National Park or on Skokholm island off the Pembrokeshire coast.

Wales is a walker's paradise, with several long, scenic trails away from the madding crowds. For the less energetic, narrow-gauge steam railways, once used by the mines, chug slowly up mountains allowing visitors to marvel at the scenic wonders of the country from a Victorian carriage.
