Welcome to the 9th Gower Walking Festival – 71 guided walks and activities over 16 days.
Explore the unique landscapes of Gower – dramatic cliffs, sandy beaches, wooded valleys and open moors and marsh. Delve into our history – Celtic Saints, Norman invasion and Copperopolis. Taste our gorgeous local food. Discover a rich wildlife with our experts.
We have a wonderful team of local volunteers ready to introduce you to all that is Gower, Britain’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, an 18-mile-long peninsula, jutting out into the Bristol Channel, on the doorstep of Swansea, Wales’s second city.
