Welcome to Let's Walk Cymru

In a beautiful country just waiting to be explored, more and more of us lead lives that are hectic but less than healthy.

We know we ought to get more exercise, but there are so many reasons not to: “Joining a gym’s so expensive”; “The roads are too busy for cycling”; “I’d go jogging, but I hate how I look in leggings.” But for once, a complicated problem has a simple solution:

Walking. It’s the perfect way to get fit while having fun, and Let’s Walk Cymru is here to help everyone, no matter their age or level of fitness, to get out there and discover Wales’s wealth of natural green space, scenic landscapes and urban parks. This website tells you everything you need to know – and just by arriving on this page, you’ve taken the first step to a healthier and happier you.
