This four day walking event attracts visitors from all over the world. There are waymarked walks each day with a choice of distances, and entertainment in the evenings.
The aims of the walks are to provide a focal point for people who enjoy walking, encourage physical activity of the kind that everyone can enjoy, provide a challenge and reward and to show some of the delightful countryside around and Llanwrtyd Wells with different routes each day.
The Festival is non-competitive walks and is open to anyone on payment of the appropriate fees. These are qualifying events towards the award scheme promoted
by the IVV, (International Federation of Popular Sports) an organisation which encourages personal fitness through regular outdoor activity. Details and information on the IVV, represented in the British Isles by the British Walking Federation, will be available at the start venue of the events.
The walks are for pleasure, but individuals or groups may use them to raise funds for deserving causes if they wish. Each individual will qualify for a certificate for every walk completed.
