Description
Experience a powerful boost of wellness from this short walking pilgrimage in Celtic heartlands. Our small group (6 max) will walk through the Aeron Valley, Ceredigion, before heading up towards the rural town of Tregaron and onto the ruins of the 12th Century Cistercian Monastery at Strata Florida. Our route is totally varied from woodland to moorland, river side to farmland. But it is the inner journeys which are as meaningful as the outer journeys we make. There is time to reflext, time for meditative walking, time for poetry and storytelling. Mileage is 11 miles / 11 miles / 7 miles over the 3 days. Accommodation is simple dormitory hostel style or local inn / b&b. Most food included (just one pub supper and picnic lunch not included). More details about Guided Pilgrimage on the website - please email for further information.
