Wales Coast Path Walking Holidays
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 Anglesey, Gower 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 70 and 85 walking 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 two 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.

Client Reviews of Our Wales Coast Path Holidays
Our past clients rated this walk 4.9 out of 5, based on 8 reviews.
‘Although in the past we have organised our own walking holidays, most recently we have used the self-guided option, provided by walking companies. Celtic Trails compares very favourably. Walking is in our opinion the best way to appreciate the variety of the British Countryside, it is instilled with a sense of purpose (there’s no ‘what shall we do today’). We appreciate your attention to detail, there was nothing that could have been improved on’.
Pam & Stephen Turner (Pembrokeshire Coast Path) September 2016
‘Our B&B’s were wonderful, and we enjoyed the spectacular scenery and unspoiled beauty. Thank you for a fantastic walking holiday in Wales! We felt taken care of and pampered throughout our stay. What a wonderful way to see the country of Wales!’
Brad & Pam Ozenberger (Gower Coastal Path) May 2015
‘We enjoyed the food, beer hotels and kindness of people – c’est fantastique! Thank-you Nathan for all you’ve done, it was great. I thought it was better to have a local company, we walk only with Celtic Trails’.
Zellweger (Llŷn Coastal Path) June 2016
‘[the luggage and private transfer were] perfect. I used to organise and carry everything myself, Celtic Trails makes everything nice and a lot easier. I like walking from one destination to the next, rather than staying in one place. I had a wonderful week, thank you very much!’
The Kimmids (Ceredigion Coastal Path) May 2016
'Kate - many thanks for great organisation. The people you have chosen are v.caring and respectful of walkers. Everyone sung Celtic Trails' praises along the way too! Will choose you for the rest of our Pembrokeshire Coastal Path soon!'
Suzanne William (Pembrokeshire Coast Path) May 2015
Many thanks for organising such a lovely walk. We had such a great time with plenty of walking & talking. It is the 3rd time we have used Celtic Trails to organise our walks. Again, everything was perfect. Thank you so much. We will be back for another walk.
Young & Davies (Llŷn Coastal Path) September 2013
‘Excellent holiday, I would come again with you! I live on the Llŷn Peninsula and know how lovely the Welsh Coast is, we had a great holiday’.
Spencer (Ceredigion Coast Path) May 2015
‘After our walking holiday on the Anglesey Coastal Path, I have to say – what a gorgeous magnificent way!!! We enjoyed 10 days (with only 7 hours of rain!) on cliffs and beaches, with heather and gorse, bullocks and seagulls, porpoises and sheep, archaeology and architecture, nature and landscape, sunburn, but no blisters. Wonderful B&B’s and really astonishing good food in all pubs and restaurants. We’ll do our best to send you more people there! Thanks for perfectly preparing everything!’
