This Welsh self guided walking holiday hikes through some of the highlights of Wales and is a great introduction to walking holidays in Wales and the UK. The Offa's Dyke Path passes through some of Wales's most spectacular landscapes full of wildlife and heritage.
The Offa's Dyke walking trail is clearly way-marked to provide reassurance on your walking holiday in Wales.
The walking trail officially opened in 1971 but this long-distance hiking path follows an earthwork of much greater antiquity. Built by King Offa of Mercia in the 8th century, Offa's Dyke formed the ancient frontier between England and Wales. There are no border skirmishes these days, but you'll find miles of quiet, uninterrupted Welsh countryside, stunning mountain ranges and a plethora of wildlife.
