Today, we will travel from the hotel in Aberystwyth to the majestic Elan Valley. Known as the ‘Welsh Lake district’, the Elan Valley boasts five striking reservoirs built during the late 19th and early 20th century within 70-square miles of moorland, bog, woodland, river and reservoirs. It is an internationally important wildlife site, where there are fantastic photographic opportunities to capture several different birds of prey, Kites and Buzzards are almost guaranteed, and the Golden Eagle has been seen in this area. We will tour some of the highlights with an Elan Valley Ranger before stopping for lunch in the Visitor Centre.

Nant Yr Arian Half Day Trip - Aberystwyth University

Today we will take the coach up to a site that was recently awarded the Visit Wales Gold Award for providing an excellent visitor experience. Bwlch Nant yr Arian is home to a range of walking trails with something to suit everyone! The routes are of varying lengths and variety of surfaces and all with fantastic views that stretch all the way over the Cambrian mountains and as far as Cardigan Bay. The Barcud trail round the lake is suitable for wheelchairs and has a bird hide overlooking the lake. From here you will be able to view up to 150 Red Kites at the daily Red Kite feeding that the site is famous for. These beautiful birds were introduced to the area in small numbers in 1999 when they were a threatened species and are now thriving, visiting Nant-yr-Arian from a 10-mile radius. For a more challenging walk, the Ridgetop Trail offers panoramic views across the Rheidol and Melindwr valleys, as well as Pumlumon.

Vale of Rheidol Day Trip - Aberystwyth University

Today travel on the Vale of Rheidol railway on a traditional steam locomotive. Departing from Aberystwyth town, it takes you 11 ¾ miles all the way up to the beautiful Devil’s Bridge. The train offers incomparable views of the Rheidol valley from the mountain-side. There will be a stop to refuel with lunch at the Hafod Hotel, a former hunting lodge which overlooks the valley, before walking down to the bridge itself. Devil’s Bridge itself is a mythical place where it is said that the Devil was tricked by an old Welsh lady. First, stop to see the three bridges over the gorge that over time have been built one on top of the other. From here you can walk down to the punchbowl to see how the water has dramatically altered the rock or take the fall’s walk through the nature trail. Look out for Robber’s cave and Red Kites as well as the other flora and fauna which make this a site of special scientific interest!   The Vale of Rheidol Steam Train will depart at 10.00am, and arrive back at Aberystwyth at 5.15pm.
