Our Groups are up and running with their activities.   While there is generally no fixed maximum number of participants on an event, an event may have a limit in place based on it's risk assessment.   All events still require every participant to pre-book via the website.

General information

This is a seven-and-a-bit mile, figure-of-eight walk through Afan Forest Park on one of the more moderate and lower-level walks of the trails available to walk in the valley.  The first loop takes in some iconic landmarks connected to the Welsh actor Richard Burton and the viaduct and aqueduct that dominate the area.  The second loop is through the beautiful forestry of the Afan Valley, which is known as ‘Little Switzerland’ due to its Alpine-like appearance, following both sides of the River Afan.
