Trefriw Walking Festival 2018, Snowdonia, Wales

Trefriw Walking Festival is Snowdonia’s most popular walking festival, and the exciting part has started –  we’re now finalising the walks programme for 2018, another 20 great walks full of variety for all ages and abilities that you’re just going to love.  

Please note that some details may change before  bookings open on 15th March, 2018.

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.
