Welsh Life Experiences

Music and Cheer for Long Winter Nights
For our winter wildlife breaks, the evenings draw in early, so we want to make sure that you make the most of Wales’ tradition for good music and entertainment.  For example,past January breaks have included a concert at Aberystwyth Arts Centre featuring Bryn Terfel & Gwawr Edwards on home ground with local choirs and a fabulous evening of competing male voice choirs,  part of the popular choral event Cor Cymru, televised for S4C –  a real feast of top class singing for all tastes combined with the excitement of competition.
And there’s lots of good cheer in store for our winter wildlife breaks, do come back to this page for more details which will be published as they become available.

Spring and Summer Boat Trips
In the summer, no visit to Wales is really complete without the exhilarating sea air in your face. So subject to safe sailing conditions, summer breaks include a short sea voyage or the chance to meet the winners of the Three Peaks Yacht Race and wave off the race to Fort William. If sea conditions won’t allow safe sailing, alternative activities will be arranged.
Our Coast and Islands Spectacular holiday includes a whole series of sea trips, subject to safe sailing.

Surprising Science
Did you know that Welsh scientists are leading the UK in producing a new habitat map for Wales to an accuracy of better than 10m, using satellite technology? Or that bluebells could have very interesting pharmaceutical properties, and that work on everyday plants, to produce a range of natural products, is happening in Aberystwyth? You may have a chance to learn more surprising science and meet some of the scientists during your wildlife break.
History and Tradition
Wales is a land steeped in history, tradition and folklore, from the first Eisteddfod in Cardigan in the 12th century, to modern-day poets or bards. The National Library of Wales, Llyfrgell Genedlaethol Cymru, in Aberystwyth, reflects this in an harmonious mix of old tradition and new technology through the digitization of its collection. As proud of its working heritage as its bardic tradition, the Museum of Welsh Life at St Fagans offers a walk around Wales – from Celtic times to the present day. St Fagans is one of Europe’s leading open–air museums and Wales’s most popular heritage attraction. Your wildlife break may provide the opportunity to visit the National Library or St Fagans and see these national treasures for yourself.
