Perhaps the most unspoilt river valley in Britain, the Wye flows through breathtaking scenery rich in both Welsh and English history. Rambling through the Wye Valley, the ruins of Tintern Abbey come into view – beauty in stone while the chants of long-ago monks seems to echo round these stones. We follow sections of the Wye Valley Walk, the Offa’s Dyke Path and surrounding trails meandering along the hillsides high above the majestic River Wye often emerging at superb viewing points such as Symonds Yat Rock and the Eagle’s Nest.
Contours Walking Holidays organise everything from luggage transfers and accommodation to a comprehensive holiday pack complete with maps and guidebooks, ensuring you have all you need to discover the Wye Valley at your own pace.
The Wye River criss-crosses the Welsh and English borders as it winds its way through scenic and tranquil countryside. The author George Borrow once described it as ‘the most lovely river, probably, the world can boast of’. As a border river it has an intriguing history with Iron Age Hillforts and a string of castles defending its boundaries. Today, it’s a place where grapes ripen, salmon leap, markets bustle and culture thrives, especially in Hay-on-Wye, a famous literary town.
Drover Holidays is an independent walking and cycling tour operator based in beautiful Hay-on-Wye. The company offers short breaks and longer tours, on foot or by bike, which include accommodation, luggage transfer, customised maps and friendly back-up. Self-guided, escorted and dog-friendly options are available and the team is very happy to tailor itineraries to suit your requirements.
