Although part of the present day United Kingdom, Wales is a country of ancient origins and wild lands. Stone monuments from its pre-historic past still can be found across parts of the country today, along with ancient castles, remains of magnificent abbeys and even Roman ruins. The wild nature of this land can also be found in abundance, from the beautiful and colorful moors and butterflies of the Isle of Angelsea to the numerous birds and other wildlife of the coastal wetlands. More inland, the magnificent Kite can now be found again soaring as it looks for prey. Join us for castles, butterflies, birds and much more in a journey across Wales.
