Do you fancy embarking on an adventure outdoors, perhaps to go hiking or camping? Want to skirt or have a coastal walk exploring brilliant white cliffs and series of bridges and tunnels? Or perhaps you’d like to stay at the back and enjoy viewing a steep granite ridge?
Whether it is a hike for the weekend or week-long treks, the UK has plenty more for you.
Before you lace up the hiking boots, reform your sense of adventure with a pick from these top incredible locations;
- The lizard coast, England
With a suggested moderate pace of 11-km trek, this hike around the Cornwall’s Southern Coast might seem to be a short adventure. However, it is one of the most stunning beaches in England!
Why is it special?
At the lizard cost, your hike starts and ends at Kynance Cove. From the cove, traverse along the path in the coastal cliff which is overlaid with a fragrant sea, usually of heather blossoms. Pass the abandoned Victorian to arrive at Lizard Lighthouse.
From here, a short distance will get you to the Pen Olver. Here, you’ll experience amazing moments enjoying the coastline’s beautiful views, leave alone the two small huts used by the winner of a Nobel prize and famous inventor, Guglielmo Marconi himself.
Besides the glorious scenery, another major fore deal of the lizard coast is the incredible wildlife all around. Here, to catch a glimpse of a chough; a corvid type is pretty guaranteed.
Before the journey ends, you’ll venture the Pistol Ogo Meadows, which stems its reputation as the final destination of souls exceeding two hundred drowned in 1720, after the Royal Anne wrecked.
- South Down Ways
If you are after an encapsulating hike, a quiet and one with a bit of peace, the British Great Countryside has it for you. It is one of the most iconic landscapes of 100 mileslarge and a suggested hiking time of 8 days.
Why is it special?
At South Downs Ways you’ll experience the most beautiful countryside between the first capital of England, Winchester, and the white cliffs, right at Eastbourne.
The route from Eastbourne to Winchester cutting across major towns like Firle Beacon and Up Waltham is generally great for numerous reason;
- One, the way follows an extremely prominent ridge of hills, creating a great view.
- Another bonus is that you can see the sea, where you’ve been and where you’re heading.
- The most spectacular views on the Eastern section is another plus. The surrounding land is flat and goes for miles, meaning, you’ll not have to climb every mountain just to get a sustained view.
- Getting lost is next to impossible. The way is signposted adequately for mostsignificant parts, making it easier to cover more grounds.
However, if you have some time for visible prehistory, attractive wildlife, pretty villages, and excellent pubs, or even to have a fancy challenge, the South Down Ways are always waiting.
- The Snowdown Horseshoe, Snowdonia
It might be a deceptive hard trek, but besides, you’ll have every opportunity for the photos while exploring. Snowdown has a suggested hiking time of closely 7hrs and a 7 miles distance.
Although there areseveral routes you can take to climb Snowdon; the most common is the Snowdon horseshoe.
Why is it special?
You are starting up the Pyg track is how to begin your adventure. Track to the BwlchMoch where you’ll have views of miners’ causeway and the LlynLaw.Here you’ll encounter a short but steep climb up, just before starting your first Crib Goch scramble.
The crest in this place is knife-edged, and it will demand your confidence to get through, otherwise, take your time, and you’ll find yourself enjoying asyou see moreof places for your feet and hands as well.
Scramble around the Pinnacles and get some pleasure from the views over the Snowdown’s peak as you cover a grassy and relatively broad area. Now you are heading towards your second scramble, GarneddUgain, which is less revealed than like the previous one.
Take the opportunity and look back where you’ve come from and see the views of the Crib Goch one again. From here, the route is straightforward to the Snowdon summit.
While on the highest peak, soak in every achievement you’ve made by taking photos of tiny people from a distance, struggling to cross ‘your’ ridge. Then later you can join the Miners track and get back to thePen y Pass, the car park.
