By ELeyshon 31 Jul 2019

Now that the summer has officially arrived, you might still be in Swansea and twiddling your thumbs while waiting for the Freshers’ week fun. If you’re looking for an active alternative or simply an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, here’s our guide.

1. Cycling: mumbles, cycle routes, Aberafan

Take your bike along the front or for a cycle down the millennium footpath or borrow a Santader bike and take it along the front. If you’re even more of an adrenaline junky, Aberafan has an outstanding mountain biking course.

2. Walking: Coastal path

Walking is a great form of cardiovascular exercise. You could walk along the Mumbles front or around parts of the Gower. Take fluids, plan your route, take suntan lotion and layers – it’s very easy to get caught out.

3. Kayaking/ rock-climbing/ coasteering

There are ample opportunities to be involved in activities in and around Swansea such as Kayaking and rock-climbing with RipnRock in the Gower.

4. Surfing: surf schools in the Gower
