The Wales Coast Path is often missing from the hiker’s bucket list. Treks like the Inca Trail and Kilimanjaro have their rightful spots, but the path along the Welsh coastline, speckled with quaint towns, immersed in history, and blanketed with fairytale-inspiring landscapes, somehow hasn’t made the cut. Perhaps most hikers simply haven’t heard of it.

The Best Trek You've Never Heard Of

Rated by Cheap Flights as one of the 10 best hiking trails in the world, this path twists 300 kilometers from St. Dogmaels to Amroth in southwest Wales.
