Looking after yourself and the countryside
Waterfall Country is a fragile landscape that can be easily damaged. Follow these guidelines and help preserve its beauty.
- Keep on the waymarked paths – they will offer you the safest route.
- If you bring it here, take it home – litter can spoil everyone’s visit.
- Watch where you step! – plants, especially mosses, are fragile and slow growing and easily trampled.
- Fires are devastating, leave standing and fallen trees for the wildlife.
- Peace and quiet are appreciated by the local residents, both people and animals.
Exploring the outdoors is fantastic fun, but please read up on the risks and make sure you are prepared.

You might say we’re biased, but Wales is home to the most majestic and stunningly beautiful waterfalls on the planet. Trust us. Rivers trickle from mountain peaks and through Welsh woodlands, cascading over clifftops as they make their way to the sea. For hikers, explorers, and nature lovers, visiting a Welsh waterfall (or four) can make for the perfect day trip or weekend away.
