Top Ten United Kingdom Classic Adventures

Follow the Wizard Merlin

Journey to the most remote part of Wales for a rugged, mystical trek through Snowdonia, a wilderness that has changed little since the wizard Merlin's day. A trip through Merlin's alleged birthplace takes a hard five days traveling around the mountains Cader Idris and Snowdon, sleeping under canvas. Of course, getting caught in the sub-Arctic climate here is something even Merlin can't save you from, so take a guide. You can concentrate on the views out over the valleys and the ravens wheeling and turning somersaults on the wind.
