Monmouthshire is home to two of Wales's greatest natural wonders: the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean. Every year, the area attracts all kinds of adventure enthusiasts, from mountain bikers and canoeists, to gorge scramblers and white water rafters. It's a fantastic place to properly experience the great British outdoors; and we're offering you the opportunity to experience the Wye Valley for yourself with Inspire2Adventure – who specialise in supervised adventure holidays in Monmouthshire, and Hidden Valley Yurts, luxury eco-friendly camping in the heart of the idyllic Welsh borders countryside.
- Spend the day with Inspire2Adventure, open canoeing down a section of the picturesque River Wye enjoying the scenery, and learning new skills and shooting rapids. You'll also get to climb the limestone cliffs of the Wye Valley, and abseil your way back down like a pro.
- After a long day's adrenaline-fuelled activities, you'll want somewhere cool and cosy to rest your head. Luckily, our pals at Hidden Valley Yurts have offered to put you up in one of their stunning authentic Mongolian yurts for three nights. Camp in the great outdoors, cook one-pot wonders over a campfire and gaze at the stars above you in the middle of the Welsh open countryside.
All this talk of the great outdoors, and adrenalin-fuelled activities has got us thinking about bucket lists. We've all got one – top things to do before we pop our clogs, so to speak! Of course usually, bucket lists involve something remote and exotic, like walking the Great Wall of China, or seeing the pyramids of Egypt. But what about the UK?
We'd like to know: what's the one thing you want to do in the UK before you finally hang your hat? Perhaps you've always wanted to climb Ben Nevis dressed as Superman? Or try skinny dipping in the Lake District? Maybe you'd like to just skip work, catch a random train and see where it takes you? Tell us the number one thing you've always wanted to do in the UK and the best answer will win!
