Mountain Biking at Brechfa Forest

One of the best ways to enjoy your time in Carmarthenshire is to get active!

Mountain Biking

Carmarthenshire has some of the best mountain biking in the UK. The best place is Brechfa Forest which boasts some fantastic mountain biking facilities. Much like a ski resort, there are routes to suit any ability. With a choice of green, blue, red and black routes, you are sure to find something suitable for your group.

Water Sports

Conoeing on the River Teifi

Whether you want to have a go at sailing, canoeing or rowing, Carmarthenshire has the rivers and facilities to keep you busy for days.

The Tywi Boat club is the perfect place to get out on the water. Perched right at the head of the Tywi estuary, the boat club is perfect for sailing or rowing. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced sailor, this RYA accredited centre will make sure you to get the most from your time on the water. The Tywi boat club is also one of the few centres qualified to deliver sailing tuition to disabled sailors.

Horse Riding

Horse Riding at Marros

With some of the longest beaches in the UK and forests covering hundreds of square miles, it’s no surprise that Carmarthenshire is a great place to go horse riding. There are riding stables all over the county.

If you’d like lessons or the chance to hack through some of the most beautiful scenery in Wales, why not drop into Marros Riding Stables or Hills Farm Holiday Stables.

Walking

Walking the Carmarthenshire countryside

Whether you feel like a seaside stroll or a walk up some of the highest mountains in southern Britain, Carmarthenshire has it all.

There are so many beautiful walks all over Carmarthenshire. The only question is how many you can fit in!

Waterfalls, beaches, cliff tops or mountains? It’s all here, you’ve just got to choose.

Some of the most spectacular walks in the county are in the Brecon Beacons National Park. The park includes some of the most dramatic scenery in England and Wales. Though it is shared with our neighbouring county, Powys, no visit to Carmarthenshire is complete without visiting these wonderful mountains.

Fishing

Fishing in Carmarthenshire

If you are interested in fishing, Carmarthenshire is heaven. On the miles of clean, deserted beaches you can catch prawns or mussels from rock pools or try your luck casting a line from the shore.

To anyone into angling, Carmarthenshire’s rivers should need no introduction. The Cothi, Tywi and Teifi are all rich with sewin (sea trout) and salmon. They all offer a peaceful and inspiring setting to while away the day. For more information visit our guide to Fishing in Carmarthenshire.
