Description

Take a guided walk with Borderlands to see the best that the Brecon Beacons and Wye Valley have to offer. If you only have a short time on your break, it’s a great way to ensure you find the best routes around.

Wye Valley guided walks

The Wye Valley is the birthplace of the tourist industry in England. Tours started here way back in the 18th century and it’s every bit as popular today. A large number of long distance paths all converge on the valley, making it a walker’s paradise.

Try sections of Offa’s Dyke Path and the Wye Valley Walk to discover some stunning viewpoints over the river. The Wysis Way winds through the Forest of Dean. Take this route to go hunting for the local deer and wild boar. Both the Gloucestershire Way and the end of the Wales Coast Path touch on the region as well. With so many routes to choose from there’s always a great day out to be had.

Brecon Beacons

One of just three national parks in Wales, the Brecon Beacons is a wonderful area and is justifiably popular with hikers. The guided walks on offer range from big mountain days out to strolls through waterfall country. The industrial heritage of South Wales can be found across the area with old tramways and quarries slowly being reclaimed by nature. For history enthusiasts, there are over 20 military plane crash sites, dating from the 1940s onwards so there’s a walk for all tastes.

For an extended trip you could even tackle the entire Beacons Way. Weaving through the heart of the national park for almost 100 miles, this 8-9 day route explores all of the best bits!
