Year of the Sea 2018

It’s not just Wales’ coastline that offers beauty and thrills; the Country is criss-crossed with rivers, canals and lakes.

The Teifi is one of Wales’s longest rivers at 73 miles.  It runs along the boundary between Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion for most of its length, then Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire for the last three miles. The Teifi is a valley of contrasts, from the openness of Tregaron Bog, rich farmland, and wooded gorges, to the estuary at St Dogmaels.  Not just long and beautiful, the River hosts many activities including kayaking, canoeing, fishing, coasteering and swimming.  Llandysul Paddlers, Cardigan Bay Active and Heritage Canoes organise activities on the river. The Teifi Trout Association is one of the organisations where fishing permits can be obtained.

Head to Cenarth Falls to see the salmon leap, or to the Welsh Wildlife Centre at Cilgerran where there is a range of river wildlife and flora and fauna. Alternatively, visit the National Coracle Centre to learn about coracle fishing.
