Just a short drive from Swansea, the Gower Peninsula in South Wales is home to some of the UK’s finest beaches, tidal islands, ancient woodland and stunning coastal paths.
Home to some of the very best sections of the Wales Coastal Path, the Gower was designated as the UK’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (ANOB) back in 1956, and we’re glad to say it hasn’t changed much since!
The rich and varied environment is breath-taking (and we’re not just saying that!) – From wild moors and limestone cliffs to golden, sandy beaches. Gower is a geological goldmine of inspiring landscapes. From trail running, to surfing, coasteering, rock climbing, paragliding, sea kayaing, wild swimming – the Gower has it all in spades!
Our very own adventure playground for the weekend, you’ll head out to explore Gower on guided and self-guided adventures, starting and finishing at the festival site.
