Typical Itinerary


Day 1 – Arrival

Our driver will be at your nominated collection point at the pre-agreed time to load your team and all of their kit. When you arrive at camp near Prestatyn we will cook you a hearty meal, run through the plan for your Offa’s Dyke adventure and then leave you and the team to rest up for the evening.

Day 2 – Prestatyn to Llanbedr Dyffryn Clwyd

  • Approx 5hrs
  • 51km/32mi
  • 1210m

Offa’s Dyke path starts in the 390 km2 (151 mi2) Clwydian Range and Dee Valley AONB, famed for its diverse inhabitants, from rare spotted birds to various reptiles. Leaving Prestatyn you gradually climb the Clwydian Way. Passing the Y Graig nature reserve with its abundance of wildflowers and butterflies. Expect fantastic views over the Vale of Clwyd and beyond from under the Penycloddiau hillfort – one of the largest in Wales at the time at 21 hectares. Toward the end of the day you skirt around Moel Famau and on to camp 2 just outside Llanbedr Dyffryn Clwyd

Day 3 – Llanbedr Dyffryn Clwyd to Moel Fferna

  • Approx 5hrs
  • 55km/34mi
  • 1270m

Day 3 starts with quiet country lanes before passing through the ancient woodland of Penycloddiau hillfort which provides stunning views of the rural Welsh landscape. You then head to the Llandegla Forest, under The Worlds End and along the banks of the Eglwyseg River. Dropping down to the Llangollen Canal, you discover the picturesque town of Llangollen before snaking out of the Dee valley to rest with us near Moel Ffrena for the evening.

Day 4 – Moel Fferna to Refail

  • Approx 5hrs
  • 62km/39mi
  • 580m

On Day 4 quiet country lanes are the main order of the day. With a mere 580m of climbing and more descent than ascent you have a good chance to rest those weary legs. After Afon Tanat your path merges with the Montgomery Canal near Llansilin for an almost flat 28km (17mi) stretch. You nip onto the Shropshire Way, bumble through the scenic market town of Welshpool and on to the home straight to Refail for food, fire and frivolity at our campsite for the night.

Day 5 – Refail to Llangunllo

  • Approx 5hrs
  • 52km/33mi
  • 1250m

Continuing along the Montgomery Canal for the initial 6km (4mi), day 5 welcomes you with a flat start. Bumble through the scenic market town of Welshpool to Abermule to reach a 10km (6mi) climb that will truly test your cycling muscles as you mount the Shropshire Hills AONB. Cross the border into the English countryside before a descent into Clun, past the castle ruins and out of theShropshire Hills AONB. Here you join the Jack Mynton Way, the Offa’s Dyke Path proper, and Glyndwr’s Way before coming to rest near Llangunllo.


Day 6 – Llangunllo to Llanbadarn y Garreg

  • Approx 4.5hrs
  • 43km/27mi
  • 960m

Beyond Llangunllo you climb up to Radnor Forest and descend into New Radnor along sleepy lanes and traffic-free paths, which along with rolling countryside, are the order of day six on your Offa’s Dyke cycling challenge. Quaint villages such as Llanfihangel-nant-Melan in the Edw Valley line your way with scenic views aplenty.


Day 7 – Llanbadarn y Garreg to Llanvihangle Crucorney

  • Approx 5hrs
  • 62km/39mi
  • 1010m

Day seven sees you cross the River Wye and scramble upwards for 13km (8mi) beyond Glasbury to hit the Brecon Beacons. Fantastic vistas of Twmpa (aka Lord Hereford’s Knob!) and Hay Bluff line your route. Soon you reach the Olchon Valley. Hugging the Brecon Beacons, descend to the charming Llanvihangel Crucorney for tonight’s camp.


Day 8 – Llanvihangle Crucorney to Sedbury

  • Approx 5hrs
  • 63km/39mi
  • 920m

The final ride of your Offa’s Dyke adventure has you pass the circa 1000 year old White Castle whose imposing position frames your winding route in and out of the Wye Valley. A particularly steep descent into Monmouth takes you toward the River Monnow and Monmouth Castle. You enter the Wye Valley AONB and follow the course of the Wye to Brockwell. Here is your final climb and a reward of a 10km (6mi) descent into Sedbury where our final luxurious camp and nourishing, freshly cooked meal of local treats awaits your weary bones!


Day 9 – Home

Have a well-earned lie in on day nine while we make you a hot, cooked breakfast as unhealthy as you like! When you’re all packed up we’ll whisk you and your kit back home again.

If you would like to prolong your Offa’s Dyke adventure there are a couple of world class bike parks along the way that you could call in for a day or why not take half a day to do some paddling on the River Wye?
