What we're about

Wales Outdoors is for those who would like to take part in walking and adventuring in Wales and walking holidays to places like Scotland, Tenerife and Iceland. We offer up a range of day-long walks of varying distances and so hope to cover most levels of ability/fitness. We guarantee a minimum of two walks per week and try to cover each and every Saturday and Sunday throughout the year.

IMPORTANT TO KNOW! You can walk with Wales Outdoors on each and every walk we deliver for just £25 a month and no extra charge - sign up here - https://walesoutdoors.co.uk/membership-account/membership-levels/ - and go get adding your name to the events :)

Wales Outdoors is all about physical and mental wellbeing and with this in mind we aim 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 group's development.

Wales Outdoors is actively seeking members and new walking leaders.

The Dragon’s Back And Waun Fach

Needs a location

£25.00

BOOK EVENT - https://www.walesoutdoors.co.uk/events/the-dragons-back-and-waun-fach/

A fine mountain day in the lesser walked area just south of Talgarth in the Brecon Beacons National Park
About
This walk ascends the lumps and dips of the Y Grib ridge, known as the Dragon’s Back, from the tip of the tail to the highest point of the Black Mountains, Waun Fach. It takes in the remains of Castell Dinas, the highest castle in Wales and England, which dates from the very earliest days of the Norman conquest of Britain. Virtually all the ascent is in the first half of the walk with a couple of steep but easy sections. On a good day the views are extensive, covering the full length of the Brecon Beacons National Park and as far as the Malvern Hills in the Midlands. Good underfoot throughout but this is a mountain day and therefore exposed to the changeable nature of mountain weather with little shelter.

We will then take in the 3 highest peaks in the Brecon Beacons – Corn Du, Pen y Fan and Crybin – before heading back to the cars down a roman road.
There is the option to take in a 4th peak – Fan y Big – and the ‘diving board stone, weather, time and group fitness permitting. Good paths throughout apart from the short detour to the crash site.

The Worm’s Head - A Tidal Adventure

Needs a location

£25.00

The Worm’s Head is a tidal island at the very end of the Gower with limited accessibility

About
The Worm’s Head is a tidal island at the very end of the Gower and is only accessible for a couple of hours on either side of low tide.
After a short stroll through the village, we ascend to the trig point at the southern end of Rhossili Down. From here, on a good day, there are extensive views west along the Pembrokeshire coast as far as Caldey Island and east across the entire Gower peninsula and up to the mountains of the Brecon Beacons. The walk then goes the length of the hill, visiting the remains of a WW2 radar station before heading diagonally down to visit Sweyne’s Howes, two Bronze Age burial chambers. From here it’s back to the coast above Mewslade bay from where we follow the Wales Coastal path to the Coastwatch station at the end of the Rhossili peninsula.
The real adventure starts here. An easy descent to the shoreline is followed by wandering between the rock pools revealed by the falling tide until the inner island is reached. Once on the inner island keep your eyes out for seals basking on rocks. The walk to the end of the outer island involves clambering over a couple of stretches of sea-worn rocks and walking over a spectacular rock arch. Finally, at the very end, there is an optional easy short scramble to get to the top of the ‘head’ from where you can look back along the length of the island and the whole of Rhossili bay. And then it’s back to the mainland before the tide comes back in and a short walk back to the car park and a coffee, or something stronger, in the Worm’s Head Hotel.
