Llangollen and the Dee Valley

If walking is your passion and you never tire of stunning views,- then this area is for you. Renowned for the surrounding hills and the River Dee, Llangollen has something for all our clients. There is an astonishing range of cafés, restaurants, and interesting independent shops to browse and interesting places to visit. But it is its magnificent position amongst the hill surrounding the town, and the delightful Dee Valley that we want you to experience. Our solos guided walking holiday shows you the best of this diverse area.

Llangollen is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site along eleven miles of canal from Gledrid to the Horseshoe Falls via the spectacular Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. The town was also awarded Cittaslow status in 2013.

Llangollen is great place to visit. Llangollen has a reputation for welcoming people, whether for a day or two or longer.

Walking around the Dee Valley and the fringes of the Berwyn Mountains is superb. Offa’s Dyke runs through this area, and the walk along it – it is called the Panorama , a spectacular and dominating outcrop of Carboniferous Limestone from Worlds End and Eglwyseg to Trevor is stunning. Great outcrops of limestone providing walkers and climbers with ample scope to escape civilisation for a while, as we walk under the magnificent limestone cliffs.

Then there is Llangollen’s castle – Castell Dinas Bran – perched on a rock outcrop, a ruin now but a lovely walk to the top and round it. Where else would you find a steam railway, horse drawn boats on a canal and Telford’s magnificent A5 highway to Holyhead in such close proximity
