The Crickhowell Walking Festival features around 88 guided walks at different levels of duration and difficulty – so there is something there for everyone. In addition, there is an extensive programme of events for walkers and non-walkers alike and a talk by renowned explorer John Blashford-Snell
The terrain varies from short and level walks in the beautiful Usk Valley to very tough exacting routes at high altitude. Special interest walks include a wide range of topics and are for all abilities, whilst the harder routes take walkers through some of the most magnificent scenery to be found in Wales. From the wild windy ridges of the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons, to quiet unknown valleys where the red kites hover above, primroses grow in the hedgerows, and the first lambs are in the fields.
A full programme of events will run throughout the Festival, providing weary walkers - and non-walkers - with relaxation in the evenings and alternative day time pursuits. Check out the Festival website on www.crickhowellfestival.com for details of these concerts, talks and quizzes, many of which are free.
