THE WATERFALLS HIKE ( Protected content )

We begin with what can only be described as a sublime hike, a circuit of up to 7 waterfalls in the most renowned waterfall area of the UK.
“Snow falls” – walk behind a waterfall and come out the other side – must be tried once in a lifetime! Other highlights include caves and the waterfall visitor centre.

SUNDAY

BLAEN Y GLYN “hanging valley” Ridgeline walk (9 miles)
