Walking in Mid Wales

Walking and Hiking in Mid Wales

Mid Wales has an ideal landscape for walking or hiking.  The countryside varies from open moorland, ancient oak woods and quiet riverside paths.  This suits serious booted walkers as well as families exploring the countryside and wildlife.  Moreover, you are never too far from a small market town and a cup of tea or something stronger.

If you want to go it alone, there are many marked walking routes including the long distance routes of the Offa's Dyke, Ceredigion Coast Path and Glyndwr's Way.  In contrast for a quiet afternoon stroll, explore a nature trail or town trail.

If you'd like a guided walk, look at the many walking events or book a specialised guided walking holiday.

Discover Mid Wales with a range of guided tours and trails
