Llangollen is a delightful little town with a wide range of activities to choose from!
Walks are likely to include World'd End, Llangollen Castle and the famous aqueduct that featured in Rob Bell's C5 programme - Bridges of the World.
For the road cyclists we have two fantastic routes organised - these are being run as stand-alone events which you can sign up to here:
For mountain bikers there is Coed Llandegla Forest - a fantastic trail park with a range of graded routes - see the maps in the photos section. More info here.
For climbers there are some great sport climbing routes at Trevor. More info here.
And for steam train buffs there is even a full steam railway with regular departures! Info here.
You can see some of the above on this video.
Note: Climbing will only be available if suitable leaders attend this event and may not be suitable for beginners.
Dogs: Are welcome at no additional charge. They must be kept under control at all times.
What to bring
Tent: make sure you know how to pitch it, even in bad weather or in the dark. Check you have all the poles, ropes and pegs. A 3 season tent is the minimum recommended level of protection.
Sleeping bag: one that provides adequate warmth, designed to go below the temperature that you expect
Sleeping mat: will keep you warmer and dryer
Waterproof bags: for spare, dry clothing
Food: search online for camping food that’s easy to cook and filling
Cooking Equipment: check you have fuel and know how yours works
Eating equipment: mug, bowl or plate and cutlery
Washing up equipment: detergent, brush/scourer and tea towel
Wash kit: remember to include a towel, shower gel and shampoo
Torch: or easier still, a head torch
Water: bring at least two litres
Medicines: if you have hay fever, diabetes, minor ailments etc.
Day rucksack: typically 20-30 litres, they are comfortable to wear and allow you to use your arms freely
Boots: waterproof and breathable and designed for hiking, trainers are OK if the ground is dry and there’s little chance of rain
Gaiters: recommended for wet weather or boggy conditions
Socks: proper walking socks will keep your feet dry and help prevent blisters
Layered clothing: lets you quickly adapt to changes in the weather and body temperature. Go for a base layer (vest or t-shirt) and a mid layer (a micro fleece or shirt) and in cooler weather add an outer layer (a windproof jacket or thick fleece)
Trousers: ideally no jeans as they become heavy and cold in the rain, breathable fabrics are more comfortable and dry and on warm days shorts are OK
Waterproof jacket: essential when hiking in all but the calmest of weather, breathable fabrics are more comfortable and dry
Sunglasses: for any sunny day, even in winter
Sun cream: can be useful even on cloudy and winter days
Snacks: bring biscuits, energy bars, gels, bananas, chocolate or dried fruit for example and put them somewhere easy to get hold of
