South Wales

Welcome to the Gay Outdoor Club, South Wales Group, webpage.

We normally have our walks on the third weekend of each month, usually on the Sunday.  Each walk is usually around 6 to 8 miles and of a moderate nature, and we always walk at the pace of the slowest person.  Occasionally, there will be a more challenging walk and at other times an easier walk, to suit all tastes.  We usually have between 15-25 men and women attending the walks, but we can have anything up to 30 (often depending on the weather!) and members from other local GOC groups often join our walks (and we often join their walks).  Although an LGBTQ+ organisation, friends and family members who do not identify as LGBTQ+ are also welcome to join as members.

We are lucky to have such a wealth of great walks in our area.  We also arrange walking weekends and social events.  We are all very friendly and you are assured of a warm welcome.  The South Wales Group has been running for over twenty years.  Come and join us!

Details of all walks and events from all the groups up and down the country are listed on the website and you can access full information by registering without charge as a guest on a four-month trial basis, initially, on the website (  To contact us, email using our contact page.
