Walking holidays in Wales

Travelling by foot is a wonderful way to get to know this unique country, and experience all it has to offer in all its often wild and beautiful detail. Our walking holidays always factor in plenty of time to make a pit-stop here and there, to explore the charming local villages en route, to sample the local cuisine, to soak up the awesome views and acquaint yourself with the local flora and fauna.

Wales has an incredible amount of history and culture to immerse yourself in, and it’s well-known for its friendly residents, who will be more than happy to tell you tales both old and new from the local community. It’s also a great choice for nature lovers, with a lush landscape that is home to many rare species of flora and fauna. If you choose to walk the coast, you might even spot the odd seal or dolphin in the water.
