day Wales expedition programme
Friday

Friday night by boat 10:30 pm from Hoek van Holland to Harwich

Saturday

Arrival in Harwich (8 am) and departure via the motorway to Wales (Rhayader). The last 100 km take us along country roads, which is the first introduction to the beautiful landscape of Wales. On the road we will have regular tea and coffee stops. Arrival in the lodge in Rhayader at around 3 pm, opportunity to refresh and organise the personal rooms. Saturday evening a lovely local dinner in a Welsh pub.

Sunday

Reservoirs route – around 56 km– departure at 9 am. The route starts as a simple path with green lanes filled with variety, but there are a number of fun, challenging ridges later on. We’ll also cut straight through meadows filled with sheep and wild cows. Beautiful views. Then we’ll follow a narrow tarmac road along a few reservoirs and end on the dam of the Claerwen reservoir. There we’ll have a beautiful view of the lake and the valley. We can already see the next track in the distance. From the dam we’ll drive back to the valley and turn left before the farm. A little further on is a nice river (with good photo opportunities with the dam in the background). After that, we’ll follow a rough stone path with deep puddles here and there. Halfway through we settle in a beautiful BBQ spot surrounded by nature and next to a small river.

Arrival in the lodge around 5:30 pm.

Monday

Strata Florida: around 102 km – departure at 9 am – a fantastic trip! Many river crossings, challenging 4×4 mountain passes and a natural “bomb-hole” for the real daredevils (or just across the “chicken run”). Along the way we’ll take a look in the ruins of the ancient abbey and we’ll drive along beautiful routes. If it has been raining a lot the river might be dangerous, so we might have to adjust the route. Arrival at Rayander at around 6 pm for a fantastic meal.

Tuesday

Rest day. Well, we could explore the labyrinth of “King Arthur” and visit a castle, and have an afternoon programme of your choice (like clay pigeon shooting, a boat ride along the many small canals, etc.). But you can also do something for yourself.

 Wednesday

Nant Y Moch – Devil’s bridge. Around 125 km. Today the river crossings are replaced by rough terrain and beautiful vistas!

 Thursday

Pawl Hir: around 120 km, departure at 8:30 am – A round trip with various Pawl-hir green lanes, Water Break-Its-Neck, Black Yatt, Doctor’s Pool, and Club Lane. There are tons of vistas and a number of paths have challenging mud patches (where you might have to use the winch) and deep trenches filled with water, very narrow eroded passages. We’ll pass various farmsteads and many sheep meadows. On the way back we’ll stop with one of the oldest pubs of Wales for a very good meal. We’ll get back around 8 pm.

 Friday

Today we’ll depart at 10 am towards Dover. From there we’ll take the train tunnel for the crossing of 6:20 pm.

And around 10 pm we’ll pass the Dutch border at Breda.


In short, an unforgettable experience!
