The Taith Ardudwy Way is a pathway that stretches through the uplands of North Wales for just under 25 miles, taking its visitors all the way from Llandecwyn in Gwynedd to Barmouth on the Cardigan Bay.

Luckily for us, it is a well signposted journey, offering little opportunity to get lost in the wilderness. 24 miles is clearly more of a distance than you can do on a day trip to the area, but if you can afford the time to walk the whole length, you will be rewarded with a fantastic exploration of one of the most beautiful parts of the country.

You will visit each of the different parishes that border Cardigan Bay, and even traverse the Harlech Dome, one of the oldest Cambrian rock formations in Wales. Clearly, there is a great deal of history here; you will be able to take in a number of different sites of prehistoric importance.

The Taith Ardudwy Way is known for offering some of the most spectacular views in Wales, of both the coastal and mountainous varieties, and is also a good trek for any budding botanists or bird-watchers, with a wide range of rare species of both.
