Self Guided Walking Tours in Wales

Self-Guided Walking Tours in Wales

Our walking trips in Wales highlight the beauty of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, the awe of Snowdonia National Park, and the wonders of the Welsh language and culture. You’ll find no shortage of opportunities for wonderful walking holidays in Wales…so let’s go explore!

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path was officially opened in 1970 and had the honour of being the first National Way Marked Trail in Wales. The trail follows the coastline from Amroth in the south to St Dogmaels in the north, covering a distance of just under 300 kilometres (186 miles). Throughout this route, you will experience sandy bays, limestone cliffs, coastal flora and fauna, as well as evidence of human activity from Neolithic times to the present. The path offers some of the most breathtaking coastal scenery in Wales.

It’s not just about the coastal views in Wales, however! There’s the challenge of the high mountain peak of Mount Snowdon in Snowdonia National Park, which covers an area of approximately 2,130 square kilometres (823 square miles) of diverse landscapes. From that tall summit to the lush green valleys of Conway and Betws-y-Coed, you’re sure to be awed and inspired by the scenery in Wales.

If you’d prefer to join a small group of like-minded walkers with a professional guide, you can explore our Guided Walking Holidays in Wales instead of these self-guided routes. Or take a look at all of our Guided Walking Holidays in Ireland, across the UK, or along the Camino de Santiago.

About Our Walking Trips in Wales

  • You’ll communicate your ideal holiday itinerary to us so we know what you’re looking for.
  • We will pre-book all your accommodations.
  • All of your daily luggage transfers will be pre-arranged so you can enjoy your daily walks with just a small daypack.

  • And we’ll offer lots of travel information, such as recommendations for the best restaurants, pubs, and other places of interest to visit along the way.
We are making the important switch to a paperless system in order to align with our commitment to sustainability. By going paperless we aim to significantly reduce our environmental footprint by cutting down on paper waste, decreasing the need for printing, and overall lessening our reliance on natural resources. This means we can now streamline our processes in the digital world for our company and clients by taking this eco-friendly approach to our Route Notes.
