What we're about

This group is for those who would like to take part in walking and adventures in Wales and walking holidays to places like Scotland, Tenerife and Iceland.

We offer a range of day long walks of varying distances and so hope to cover most levels of ability/fitness.

The main aim of the group is to get people outdoors and walking and socialising.

We encourage the development of interest in the hills and mountains of Wales. We facilitate our members to build their skills and to get out on their own or to look to us for guided adventures in the UK and abroad.

This group is a social group, meeting up for tall tales and a few beers/food every now and again and these social gatherings will always be the starting point for this groups development.

Wales Outdoors is actively seeking members and new walking leaders.

Beach And Cave Coastal Adventure!

Ogmore-by-Sea Post Office

BOOK HERE - https://www.walesoutdoors.co.uk/events/beach-and-cave-coastal-adventure/

We will be exploring the intertidal zone between Ogmore and Southerndown

About

We will visit walk-in caves and for those that want to give it a go have a scramble through some gaps and connections that link a couple of them together. The limestone cliffs are spectacular from this viewpoint and the walk is truly memorable. We’ll likely go for a swim halfway along this route and as we’re far away from the crowds (nobody else will be nearby or walking this route) bathers will be optional!

At Southerndown we can chill with ice cream before heading back along the cliff tops to the cars. You will need a packed lunch, a torch if you have one, clothing suitable for the conditions forecast for the day, sun cream and bathing costumes… if you really must.

We are restricting numbers attending due to the potentially hazardous nature of walking at cliff bottom in a race against the tide…

Wonderful Wednesdays - Pen y Fan

Pen y Fan

BOOK HERE - https://www.walesoutdoors.co.uk/events/wonderful-wednesdays-pen-y-fan/

This is a guided walk to the summit of Pen y Fan (the highest mountain in Southern Britain) and we’ll keep you away from the crowds!

About

Meeting in the lay-by just north of Storey Arms we will have a four-hour exploration of Pen y Fan and will likely go up following the river to the source of The Taff and then up over Corn Du and onto Pen y Fan. Depending on time and how we are all doing we may simply head back down or we might head onwards to the lake at the foot of Corn Du and then back up and down to the start point via Tommy Jones Memorial and Storey Arms.

Whatever route we take this will be a fine mountain day likely with two steep ascents and one steep descent and with a small section of the walk being cross country, so moving over open ground or along sheep tracks.

2 Lakes, 3 Peaks, The Ultimate Carmarthen Fans

Llyn y Fan Fawr

BOOK EVENT - https://www.walesoutdoors.co.uk/events/2-lakes-3-peaks-the-ultimate-carmarthen-fans/

This approximately 10-mile walk is a serious mountain day taking in the best of the Carmarthen Fans.

About
Starting at the parking for Llyn y Fan Fawr the route goes up past small falls and pools to the lake. From there we go along the lakeshore and then follow the base of the steep escarpment until we drop down towards Llyn y Fan Fach.
This is, in my opinion, without doubt, the most scenic approach to our second lake, nestled in its semicircle of 800+ft cliffs. From the dam wall, we take the path onto the ridge and reach the first peak, Bannau Sir Gaer, then continue along the ridge to Picws Du. The final peak is Fan Brycheiniog, the highest in the Carmarthen Fans from where we drop down to Llyn y Fan Fawr again and back to the cars.
