epic adventures this WINTER

Dust off the cobwebs with one of our winter walking trails, with options to suit every walker from hardy mountaineers to those seeking an idyllic, picturesque stroll.

Find a pleasant, flat walk that weaves from Resolven through the Vale of Neath, along Neath Canal, giving you views of the 18th century locks. Spot Kingfishers skimming the water’s surface as you stroll deeper into the heart if the Valley.

If you’d prefer a riverside meander, the Pontardawe to Ystalafera 11.5km walk takes just over 3 and a half hours on an accessible, easy path. Starting at the bridge over the River Tawe, the path guides you along a cycleway and disused railway that carves through peaceful woodland.

For a circular walk option, visit the Trotting Track Trail in the Upper Amman Valley, a superb example of how old industrial areas have been returned to nature. Just under 3km long, the walk leads you through woodland, brownfield and grassland, letting you immerse yourself in a natural haven.

You can discover all of our walks here, and filter by location, difficulty, distance and time.

You can also walk in the footsteps of some of our more famous residents. From actors and artists to industrialists and naturalists, you can learn about our history by following their well trodden paths.
