The Wye Valley Walk is river and hill walking at its finest, with beautiful and interesting landscape every step of the way.
This, the official guide to the Way, has been produced in conjunction with the Wye Valley Walk Partnership. The partnership works to conserve and enhance the natural beauty of the area, and team works hard to maintain the area's beauty for future generations.
Passing sites such as Tintern Abbey, Goodrich Castle, Hereford Cathedral and Hay-on-Wye, the walk is accessible throughout the year and is suitable for all walkers with a reasonable level of fitness.
The Wye is one of the most important rivers for nature conservation. The Wye and its banks are designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) from the source to the mouth, one of the few British rivers to receive this designation.
You can keep a record of your walk by collecting the WVW passport stamps along the route. Once you have collected six stamps – which must include Chepstow and Hafren you can send from your exclusive badge and completion certificate from the Wye Valley Walk Partnership.
