We are very happy to arrange additional dates, please contact us if you would like to discuss a group booking.

This one day pilgrimage has it all: ten holy wells, a Bronze Age coastal fort, Celtic chapels and Celtic crosses, a stone circle and a one of the most beautiful medieval cathedrals in Europe.

Join us on this guided walk on the last stretch of ancient pilgrimage route to St Davids.

This route was as important as the Camino de Santiago in medieval times and is rapidly becoming a popular pilgrimage route again for those wanting a flavour of a Celtic Camino in Wales.

All this and a walk on what Lonely Planet describes as the finest coast path in the world, taking in spectacular cliff top views with romantic coves and smugglers’ caves.
