Over 20 Years of Helping People Get Outdoors

We are a family-run walking company established in 1997 in North Wales. Initially set-up to provide guided walking trips, we went on to become the first provider of self-guided walking holidays in Wales.  Now in our 20th year our home is in the Wye Valley and we provide over 60 different self-guided walking destinations across 7 countries, to clients from all over the world.  Below you can delve into Celtic Trails’ first two decades through our timeline, as well as a selection of our favourite photographs.
