Wild Camping & Hiking in The Preseli Mountains

Preseli Mountains Hiking & Camping

This four-day guided walking holiday gets you out in the Welsh wilderness, and more precisely, the Preseli mountains. And there’s no comfy hotel room at the end of it. Come evening, you’ll set up camp out in the sticks – away from civilization. And toilets. This one’s for survivalists and intrepid explorers.

The Preseli Mountains are the source of much intrigue – because this is where the bluestones of Stonehenge come from. And even now, how at least 80 of these epic rocks were transported 140 miles from Wales to Wiltshire is still a mystery. History aside, the landscape alone is enough to make you draw breath. Rocky tors, ancient tracks, and lofty summits make up this part of the country, and they certainly make for great walking territory.

For some, the idea of wild camping will send a shiver down the spine. No toilets? No showers? No bath? Put simply, no. But for others it’s a liberating, back-to-basics experience that will be remembered long after striking camp on the final day. And if the C-list wannabes on ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here’ can do it, then three nights will be a walk in the park. Plus, it’s not often you see a tarantula in deepest, darkest Wales. So, couple the ‘real outdoors’ camping experience with three days of hiking in the Preseli Mountains where you’ll stumble upon ancient sites as well as stunning vistas, and this trip’s certainly one to remember.

This walking and camping trip is all about connecting you with the great outdoors. There is wild camping involved – where you set up your own mini campsite for the night – so no amenities and no electricity. It’s probably best if you’re not afraid of roughing it and don’t need 5-star luxury to get a decent night’s sleep. Another thing to consider is the walking element – this is Wales, and it’s a country not known for its flat terrain, so expect demanding walks of up to 14 miles per day. On top of that, you will be carrying all your own gear, so pack light!
