Wales Coast Path Walking Holidays

We are not currently taking bookings for the full Wales Coast Path departing in 2022, however if would like to complete a smaller section or walk the full path in 2023, please get in touch.

With the completion of the Wales Coast Path, Wales has become the first country in the world where it is possible to walk the entire length of its coastline – 870 miles of natural beauty, surrounded by sea, available for discovery with our Wales Coast Path Walking Holidays. The Welsh Coast Path divides into eight sections, each is unique; watch landscape, history and culture gradually change with your footsteps.

The sheer scale of the path and effort involved, has already received widespread recognition: The Welsh Coast was named the world’s top destination to visit in 2012 by Lonely Planet travel guide. What we have now is the chance to intertwine long established Welsh coastal paths (including AngleseyGower and Pembrokeshire) with long overlooked corners of Wales, so there has never been a better opportunity to discover Wales the best way – up close, and at your own pace.

An Overview of the Wales Coast Path Sections: Step by Step

The Wales Coast Path is an impressive milestone, but it needn't be completed in a single undertaking. We offer itineraries suited to different needs, geared around any stretch of coast path in Wales you're set on. Can't find what you're looking for? Get in touch and we'll be more than happy to fit your requirements to an unforgettable Wales Coastal Path journey.

Your walking holiday in Wales will take you from the mouth of the River Dee, along the north Wales coast with its seaside towns, over the Menai Strait onto the Isle of Anglesey, from the Llyn Peninsula down the majestic sweep of Cardigan Bay, through Britain’s only coastal National Park in Pembrokeshire, along miles of golden sand, via Gower with its almost fairy-tale scenery. The last stretch takes you along the waterfront of Cardiff Bay and Cardiff, the capital city of Wales, to the market town of Chepstow, lying on the Severn Estuary coastal path. Wales is left at the crossing (via the Severn Bridge) into England from Chepstow, either the beginning or end point of your coastal walking holiday.

We would love to support you in booking this trip. This holiday can be completed between March and October and our clients usually complete the path in between 69 and 84 walking days, plus additional rest days. The holiday is booked to order and due to the high number of bed nights and the complexity of confirming consecutive night room availability for the duration - particularly during popular holiday periods - the more advance notice and flexibility in dates, the better the chances of ensuring availability. We recommend a minimum of three months’ notice, or more during the high season. If you have any queries about current availability or the best time to travel, please don’t hesitate in getting in touch with us and we will be happy to advise you.
