Thrill Seekers #ValleysAdventure

For those who are after a thrill - then The Valleys are an ideal destination. The green, hilly landscape creates a fantastic back drop for loads of great adventures - everything from mountain biking to surfing, which climbing, watersports and a good tasty pint in between!

Gemma & Tom took Loll & Dan on a great adventure, including:

Taff Valley Quad Bikes has adventures for all ages - other places to try include Mountain View Ranch or Summit Centre, Taf Bargoed. For downhill trills, there are routes all over The Valleys to challenge all comers - from great road cycling over the Bwlch or the Tumble, through to more gentle slopes on the great, off road cyclepaths. As well as BikePark Wales there are also great mountain bike trails at Cwmcarn Forest and high in the Garw Valley - each have their own challenges.

Whilst our only coastline is around Porthcawl, there are loads of other options for a bit of watersport - check out the programme at Parc Bryn Bach and Llandegfedd Reservoir - you'll find loads of ideas for paddleboarding, kayaking and much more.

Rhymney Brewery has a great visitor centre, as well as offering a tasty brew. Across The Valleys we have a host of great local breweries - such as Otley Brewery, Cerddin Brewery and Tudor Brewery, to name just a few. You can also visit the unique Penderyn Distillery to discover the secrets of Welsh Whisky.

So, come on enjoy a #ValleysAdventure this summer - it would be great if you could share your highlights on  Twitter or Facebook.
