My Passport

Walking all 136 miles of the Wye Valley Walk is a fantastic achievement. Mark the miles by keeping a record of your journey, collecting (digital) passport stamps along the route…

Don’t forget your Passport!

Sign up for our Wye Valley Walk passport scheme and you can claim your official Wye Valley Walk Certificate and Badge when you complete the walk. Collect digital stamps along the way as you finish each section, not just when you cross the border between Wales and England! It’s a fun way to mark the miles and record your journey.

Our oldest walker to receive their Wye Valley Walk passport was well into their 80s. We also awarded a certificate to a lovely dog called Jack, having walked, swam and canoed the Wye from source to sea with his owner, river champion and campaigner Angela Jones.

How it Works

At the end of each stage you will find one of these signs where you can scan a QR code, which will show you have completed that section of the Walk. Your digital passport will be automatically stamped. You will find signs like this one in the window/door of local shops, cafés, pubs, B&Bs, tourist attractions or Tourist Information Centres. A few are to be found on church porch noticeboards. They are all accessible at any time, so you don't need to worry about arriving after hours.  All the locations are detailed in the route description and marked on the route map here. There are 17 stamps to collect in total and you will need at least 12 to claim your badge and certificate. There is no mobile phone coverage at the Rhyd-y-benwch (start/end of the walk), so take a photo of yourselves and upload it to claim your stamp for that stage of the walk.

How do QR codes work?

Simply use your phone’s camera to scan the QR code and you will automatically be taken to the passport page on our website.

Old Passport Scheme

We will continue to issue badges and certificates to people who have been collecting physical passport stamps, but please be aware that many passport stamping locations closed during Lockdown and are no longer operating. That’s why we have launched the new digital passport. If you can, take a photo and attach it with your passport application, but don’t worry if you have gaps, we will still issue badges and certificates.
