Experience Something New in Mid Wales

Try your hand at something you've never tried before, and immerse yourself in new experiences.

Learn a new skill with countryside courses including dry stone walling, or pick up a paintbrush and book yourself onto an inspiring art workshop.

Take in the views aboard a hot air balloon, or if you have passion for railways you could try driving your very own steam train through the Mid Wales countryside. 

If that sounds too energetic, enjoy a truly relaxing experience at one of Mid Wales' spas or wellbeing centres, or unwind at a yoga retreat.
