Ninth Gower Walking Festival: 1-16 June, 2013
(Winner: Swansea Bay Tourism Award 2012 - Best Festival or Event
Finalist: 2012 Sustainable Development Awards, Swansea)
Centred on Britain’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Gower Walking Festival is organized and run entirely by volunteers and is a great opportunity to see the wonderful scenery and abundant wildlife of the Gower Peninsula and surrounds. It takes place from 1-16 June 2013, and there are 71 guided walks and activities for experienced walkers to leisurely strollers.
There 26 new walks this year, including geocaching, a family treasure hunt, Return Journey - a new Dylan Thomas walk, Mud and Plague, The Old Tracks of Llanmadoc and Cheriton, a Seashore Safari and Canoeing in Penclawdd. Old favourites such as Worm’s Head, Kilvey Hill and Copperopolis remain while others, such as the Quality Food Walk, have been refreshed! Our two-day 39-mile walk, renamed the Coast Path Challenge, returns this year in reverse order and the popular Twmpath rounds off the Festival as usual.
