Trefriw Walking Festival 2018, Snowdonia, Wales


Trefriw Walking Festival is Snowdonia’s most popular walking festival, and our walks programme for 2018 is now ready, with another 20 great walks full of variety for all ages and abilities that you’re just going to love.

You can choose from 135 miles of glorious walking – simply select the ‘Walks Programme’ tab to browse all the walks!

2018 is the Year of the Sea in Wales, and we’ll be celebrating this with a two-day walk to the sea.  And did you know that the river Conwy is tidal up to Trefriw and beyond?  Our ‘Tide is High’ walk explores the river valley and the flood defences, as well as aspects of Trefriw’s maritime history and the quay which once exported vast amounts of slate, timber and metal ore.  After the arrival of the railway in the valley, the quay was busy up until World War 2 with the passenger steamers which came up on high tide.

You will see that all our walks are free; however, fundraising for the Festival is always challenging, and this year we would hope that everyone taking part will make a small donation, suggested at £4 for a half day and £8 for a full day walk. This will help us to ensure that the Festival can continue next year.

We want to thank all those who help to make the Festival possible – too many names to mention individually – and of course, we must thank YOU for taking part. Have a fantastic time, whichever walk you join.

Very best wishes,

Gill Scheltinga,
