Wales Walking Holidays

Sherpa Expeditions is now Walkers' BritainTo celebrate, have dinner on us!

With a pretty coastline of sandy beaches, sea-battered cliffs, sleepy fishing villages and dynamic cities, Wales makes an attractive base for digging into Britain’s rich history and natural beauty.

Head north for the spectacular Snowdonia National Park, a hiker’s paradise of snowcapped mountains and rugged glacial landforms painted in autumnal tones.

Head further inland and find Britain’s longest archaeological monument—Offa’s Dyke. Commissioned in the 8th century by King Offa of Mercia, this ancient earthen rampart spans a total length of 177 mi (285 km) and forms the (rough) border between modern-day Wales and England.

Opened in 1971, the Offa’s Dyke Path is a National Trail tracing the length of the original earthen border, giving walkers access to the pristine Welsh-English borderlands. Way marked trails lead hikers through idyllic villages and rolling pastures, along ancient aqueducts and canal towpaths, crossing rugged moorlands and sweeping valleys dotted with medieval bridges, ruined castles and striking rocky outcrops—an immersive cultural and wilderness experience not to be missed!

Visas

Visas not required for citizens of Australia, Canada, USA and New Zealand for up to 90 days in a period of 180 days for all Schengen countries (see www. schengenvisainfo.com/schengen-visa-countries-list/ for countries part of the Schengen). Please ensure your passport is stamped on arrival in the Schengen area. For all other nationalities and for longer stays in countries covered by the Schengen Agreement (Australian New Zealand, Canadian and US passport holders), please contact the relevant embassy. Stays of longer than 90 days in the Schengen area require a long stay visa for the country you are spending most time in. However long stay visas are unlikely to be issued unless there is a valid reason (eg. studying in country). Unfortunately we cannot assist in obtaining visas for long stays due to individual country visa requirements.

Our industry leading risk management procedures have become a skill that we continue to refine. Our leaders in the field are highly trained and have safety as their number one priority. Expert leaders, risk assessments, quality inclusions and your financial security all come standard when you travel with us. Please refer to our Travel Advisory page for updates on recent events, travel warnings and advice. We strongly recommend that all clients take out travel insurance at the time of booking to cover against sickness, accident, loss of baggage, unexpected alterations to travel arrangements and travel disruption, emergency evacuation, cancellations, etc. Insurance information is enclosed with your pre-departure information. Please contact us if you would like to obtain a quote for your trip duration. We suggest that you consult your doctor, local government inoculation centre or a travel medical specialist in order to get the most current advice regarding vaccination requirements. Money and valuables should always be stored safely when travelling. Keep your passport with you at all times and do not leave it in your main luggage. You will need it to change money and check into hotels. Where safety deposit boxes are available, we recommend that you use them. Keep jewellery and valuables to a minimum.
