Walking in and around Aberystwyth
We are based in the North of Ceredigion, on Cardigan Bay on the West coast of Wales. We have a huge variety of wonderful walking opportunities. These include the coastal path, river valleys and woodlands, and the Cambrian mountains. Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons National Parks are also close enough for day walks.
We run walks linked to the history, archaeology, wildlife and geology of the area. We are part of the Ceredigion Ramblers area (with two other Ramblers groups) and we also walk with friends from the Meirionnydd group, just to the north of Ceredigion.
Our programme is varied, both in terms of location of walks and also length and difficulty as we want to be able to provide for everyone who wants to walk. All the details of our walks appear in the walks programme, which is usually produced twice each year.
Join our walking community in Ceredigion
We are a very welcoming and social group. There is at least one walk each weekend and usually other walks during the week.
Mountain walks can be challenging (in terms of length, ascent and path difficulty) but they are balanced by many easy and medium difficulty walks that allow plenty of time to chat, enjoy the scenery and take photos. Several times each year we link walks to a meal in a local venue; these are extremely popular. We also usually run one weekend away as a group each year.
We have a special Tuesday afternoon walk aimed at people who want to proceed at a slower pace. These are a maximum of 2 miles long, with little ascent or descent and no stiles. They usually end at a café.
We have a very active working party which works closely with Ceredigion County Council on various significant footpath projects.
