Coast path guided and circular walks

Walking in company, with a guide, is a great way to get to know people and places.  To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the completion of the Ceredigion Coast Path, the Ceredigion Coast and Countryside Rights of Way team are leading a series of guided walks linking to the Coast Path. 

To celebrate 15 years since the Ceredigion Coast Path was opened, a series of six guided walks are being led by the Ceredigion Rights of Way team in June and July, exploring circular routes to and from the Ceredigion Coast Path. The Ceredigion Coast Path starts/ ends at Ynyslas, and continues south to Cardigan. The series of six guided walks explore the varied landscapes and habitats along the 60 mile route.
