WALKING WITH WALKER

Exhilarating guided walks in the Brecon Beacons and throughout the wilder side of Wales

Do something special!

Explore the mountains of Wales in the company of an experienced and enthusiastic professional walking guide.

Join me for for a day (or longer!) whenever you visit the area, or come especially to experience some stunning walking. You can come by yourself, bring one or more friends, or join a group.

I grade my walks in three categories...

  • Stroll – A straightforward walk of less than 10kms, mostly on good paths.
  • Stretch – Mainly between 10kms and 15kms, these walks are slightly more demanding and may include short, steep climbs or sections of rough terrain.
  • Strenuous – Full-on hill-walking with long or steep climbs, sometimes on difficult terrain.

Your choice - or mine!

You can choose the route yourself, or you can let me choose one for you. There may be a specific walk you have always wanted to do, or an area you have always wanted to visit. Alternatively, you may just want to have a memorable day's walking, perhaps on a route that you would not attempt without guidance.

How much will this cost?

The precise cost will depend upon the route, the location, and the number of people in the group. Prices start at around £40.00 per person per day for a group of up to four people. Private guiding (one-to-one) starts at around £100.00 per day. I will quote you a precise figure, without obligation, before you make a firm booking.

What about accommodation?

From budget bunkhouses to luxury hotels, I have contacts in most mountain areas throughout Wales, and can help you find suitable accommodation if you need it.

What about kit?

That largely depends on the time of year and the walk chosen, but sturdy footwear and a reasonable set of waterproofs are a must, as is a small rucksack in which to carry refreshments. I will send you a comprehensive kit list when I confirm your booking.

These long, high ridges offer huge views and surprisingly easy walking through countryside full of history and legend. The backs of Dragons and Cats have a special place here. Enchanting!

Walking the Central Beacons…

The highest mountains in southern Britain may be popular, but I’ll take you on lesser known routes so you avoid the crowds and get to know the true atmosphere of the area. Majestic!

Walking the Western Wilds...

Stunning walking in a Welsh wilderness.  Huge hills with panoramic views sweep down to lonely limestone moors, where the occasional wrecked aircraft adds poignancy. Intriguing!

Magnificent Moorland…

Vast expanses of moorland stretch across the southern parts of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Bleak but beautiful and pockmarked with “shakeholes”, they offer wild walking! Magic!

Coastal Delights...

Wales is blessed with a fabulous coastline, and I know some of the best (and most exciting) walks. The Gower Peninsular and Pembrokeshire are firm favourites. Awesome!
