Barmouth Walking Festival

The 2016 Walking Festival will run for 10 days from Saturday 17th September to Monday 26th September.

Set in the dramatic beauty of coastal Snowdonia, Barmouth sits on the northern side of the stunning Mawddach Estuary, sheltered by the Rhinog Mountains and the Cadair Idris Range.

The Walking Festival has been developed with the aim of encouraging visitors to explore these magnificent surroundings on foot – in the company of keen, experienced and knowledgeable local guides. Historians and naturalists lead some walks and expert advice has been taken to ensure a safe, interesting and varied programme.
