Time for an adventure in Rhondda Cynon Taf

It’s time for an adventure in Rhondda Cynon Taf. We are fast becoming one of the UK’s most exciting adventure destinations, with a dramatic landscape and adrenaline adventures. Walk, hike, bike or zip line over mountain ranges and open spaces.

Zip World Tower

This is the latest adrenaline experience from the world-famous Welsh brand. The Phoenix is the fastest seated zip line in the world! Soar from the top of the breath-taking Rhigos mountain.

Ride the Tower Coaster as it twists and turns downhill – you cannot find another one like it in Europe so make sure you visit soon.

Mini adventurers will love the Tower Flyer, a mini zip-lining experience with three zipping zones you can ride side-by-side.

Cegin Glo café, has amazing views of the surrounding scenery and the sunsets and is set to sell some of the best local food and drink.

Dare Valley Country Park

This is an amazing place to stay if you have a caravan, campervan, or motorhome. Dare Valley Country Park is a Dark Sky Wales accredited site, which means it offers perfect star-gazing conditions. Set out the hammock or floor cushions, get the BBQ going and chill out under a canopy of stars and constellations.

There are over 200 acres to explore in Dare Valley Country Park. Bring your own mountain bike or hire one of ours to take on Gravity Family Bike Park and the exhilarating trails. Venture up into the glacial mountains that surround the park for some of the best views around – especially sunsets.

Caffe Cwtsh is perfect if you don’t fancy a BBQ. Meals are made onsite from fresh, local produce.

Dare Valley Country Park


No words are needed – this is one of just two table-top mountains in Europe and the view from the top is incredible – daytime, nightime, sunrise or sunset.

There’s a stunning waterfall and fairy pool popular with wild swimmers.

Mountain Biking

There are too many biking trails on our mountains to list!

Best to just grab your gear and get exploring!

Keep an eye out for the Natural Resources Wales car parks, which act as starting points for trails into the forestry and on to the mountains. The main road over the Bwlch is one of the toughest sections of the epic Dragon Ride through South Wales.
