Enjoy a self-guided, non-group walking holiday in Wales, on which you walk from one characterful guesthouse or hotel to the next. We transfer your luggage and provide you with maps and our trusted route notes, the rest is up to you – it’s you who sets the pace.
Walking holidays in Wales are all about immersing yourself in glorious natural landscapes. In the true spirit of a Slow holiday, stop as often as you like to admire the views of rugged mountains and lush green valleys – you’re not part of a group, and have nothing but the day's essentials to carry (we take care of your luggage, as well as providing step-by-step route notes and all the other arrangements), so take your time…
The fact that Wales boasts three national parks is testament to the wealth of natural beauty crammed within its borders. Our Welsh walking holidays focus on two of these protected areas: the Brecon Beacons, where gentle canalside paths contrast with routes into the hills for sweeping views, and Snowdonia, with its combination of coast and lofty peaks.
