The Crickhowell Walking Festival takes place around the beginning of March each year and lasts nine days. It consists of a number of guided walks of various grades, all led by local experienced guides. There is something for every level of walker, whether you are happy trekking all day across the tops of the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons or would rather keep to paths and the lower slopes.
Crickhowell Walking Festival organised by the Crickhowell Resource and Information Centre,
in partnership with Walkers are Welcome in Crickhowell (WAWiC) and Crickhowell Adventure. The organisers and walks leaders are all volunteers and all proceeds go to cover the costs of the Festival. It is not a profit making concern.
The programme also has a range of supporting events. These are in the form of talks, some of which will be followed by a walk to illustrate the talk the next day, courses in Map Reading and Navigation – theory and practical – as well as times to relax to music and even dance, if you still have enough energy left!
The programme is published at the beginning of December each year and booking opens immediately.
