wild wales climbing, hiking and walking holidayssnowdonia mountains










The Wild Wales ethos

The Wild Wales aim is simple – to share with others our enthusiasm for walking and climbing in the wild places of North Wales, our wide experience of the outdoors and our love for Eryri (Snowdonia).

...................................................................

We create opportunities to have a lot of fun, but also for:

freedom from deadlines, telephones, hurry and worry ...

reflection on who we are, what we're doing, where we're going ...

insight into the natural world to which we belong.

How Wild Wales holidays operate

ruined welsh castleWe operate in small groups of a maximum of eight, usually smaller. Whatever your preference, whether it's for walking, scrambling or climbing on one of the high, remote, exposed crags or for walking in more gentle fashion through the history and legend packed foothills, our principal aim is to give you a holiday of quality, a holiday you will remember. We believe that what we do in the mountains is less important than the experience of being there. The activity is a way in.

We value your input into what you are going to undertake. In so far as is practical we try to tailor each day to the preferences of those taking part.

Why 'Wild Wales'?

view across the welsh hillsIn 1854 George Borrow spent a summer walking the length and breadth of Wales, starting at Chester and finishing in Swansea. He walked everywhere, covering formidable distances and, having taught himself Welsh, chatting with everyone he met. The book he wrote about his travels was observant, humorous and sympathetic towards the land people and culture of Wales. 'Wild Wales' was an instant best-seller and is still in print today.

Following in his footsteps, literally at times, we are now delighted to be offering guided walking holidays and climbing courses in Snowdonia. Like Borrow we keep our eyes and ears open as we walk or climb, tuning into the landscape, language and culture that are quintessentially Welsh, expanding our awareness of who lives and has lived here, what grows and grazes here, and what forces have moulded these ancient hills.
