Offa's Dyke Path Guided Walking Holiday 2013
Join a group guided walking tour and walk the length of Offa's Dyke path this year. Our next tour will be 13th-29th September 2013.
Officially opened in 1971, this long-distance path follows an earthwork of much greater antiquity. Built by King Offa of Mercia in the 8th century, Offa's Dyke formed the ancient frontier between England and Wales. There are no border skirmishes these days, but you'll find miles of quiet, uninterrupted countryside, stunning upland scenery and a plethora of wildlife. Market towns and cultural heritage sites are dotted along the route and you'll encounter the Severn and Wye Rivers as the path winds southwards from Denbighshire to Monmouthshire. The Offa's Dyke Path is a fairly strenuous walk, and our 14-day itinerary is designed for reasonably fit walkers and has an average daily mileage of just under 13 miles.
