National Walking Trails of Wales

Inspirational scenery is around every bend of our National Trails. With easy access you can hit the trail over two days or two hours. So no tent needed. Just walking boots and a love of living poetry.

  • Ceibwr Bay, Pembrokeshire
    Couple walking Ceibwr Bay, Pembrokeshire

    Easy to see why BBC Coast magazine readers voted the Pembrokeshire Coast Path their favourite trail recently. The best of British is here, ragged sea cliffs, golden beaches, wildflowers and mountains across horizons. Over 186 coast-hugging miles you discover Celtic chapels at Bosherton, crablines and candyfloss at Tenby and a splendid cathedral at St Davids. Look out for seals and seabirds, and breathe in the sea air.

    We love:

    Stackpole - for building sandcastles at Barafundle Bay

    St Davids - it’s a wild walk to this miniature city

  • Offa's Dyke

    Offa's Dyke path, Powys, Mid Wales

    Today the former Welsh-English frontier, Britain’s longest ancient monument, forms the 177-mile coast-to-coast Offa's Dyke Path. Walk the Wye valley to Monmouth, past book capital Hay-on-Wye and onto the Clywdian Hills. Days are spent walking forgotten valleys with buzzards and badgers. Nights are snug in gentle market towns. A challenge, but never crowded, never boring.

    We love:

    Llangollen - a spectacular route beneath a ridge of cliffs

  • Group walking along the Glyndwr Way path near Knighton

    Group trekking Knighton, Mid Wales

     by gary.hadden

    Located in Mid Wales, most walkers haven’t caught on to Glyndŵr's Way a 135-mile route through Mid Wales – and that’s just one reason to go. The farmland, hills and moors between Knighton, Machynlleth and Welshpool feel more remote, the views across Cadair Idris and Plynlimon more exhilarating. Being overlooked has its advantages.

    We love:

    Machynlleth - the parliament town of folk hero Owain Glyndŵr

    Llyn Clywedog to Glaslyn - go from green hills to broad bleak moor in utter peace

  • Coastal Path, Aberystwyth
    Coastal Path, Aberystwyth, Ceredigion

    In 2012 we created the world’s first uninterrupted route along a national coast. The Wales Coast Path covers all the famous bits on its 870-mile odyssey: Gower, Pembrokeshire, the Cambrian Coast. There are numberless beaches, estuaries, cliff-tops and woodlands. City waterfronts, castles and the occasional industrial site among the nature reserves but that’s part of Wales; part of the voyage of discovery.

    We love:

    Anglesey -  the raw and rugged Porth Dafarch

    Glamorgan - easy walking on Wales’ Jurassic coast
