Get Walking

Walking in the ValleysFancy a walk (or two).  Then you're in luck as the 7 annual Valleys walking festival kicks off this weekend.   38 walks in total almost every inch of the Southern Wales Valleys.  There are walks of varying lengths and difficulty so there should be one suitable for you, even if it's only the ¼ mile stroll around Bryngarw Park.

Slightly more challenging walks include the Delights of the Darran Valley walk, the Dicover the Llynfi Valle walk and the intriguingly named Cider with Kevin walk.  I have no idea who Kevin is but the cider bit seems enough of a reason to give this walk a go.

Then there's the mighty 26 mile Sirhowy Valley Walk.  Follow the valley's ridgeway and floor through 3 counties in south-east Wales.  From the hilltop commons you can, on a good day (which I'm sure it will be!) enjoy panoramic views over the Bristol Channel and North to the Brecon Beacons.

All walks are led by experienced guide so you needn't worry about getting lost.

More information on the festival and its walks is here.

    What a beautiful area! Got to love South Wales! Also, if you want to camp out, but in a way that is both interesting and different, look at this link:
    There's a free competition and the prize is a chance to stay in a traditional Romany caravan.... not many better ways to enjoy the Welsh outdoors than that!
