Follow the coastal trail from the Skomer bird reserve to the great cathedral of St David’s

A self-guided walking tour.

2019 dates: early May (in 2019 from Friday 3 May) to mid-September (in 2019 last start date Sunday 22 September), starting any day. Start dates outside this period are possible (from 1 April and until mid-October), but there is then less flexibility for shortening or modifying the walks as the coastal bus service only operates 2 days per week instead of 7 days. Accommodation in this area tends to be booked up well in advance at Bank Holiday weekends (Easter, late May/early June) and during the summer holiday period (late July and August).
Duration: 7 nights
Grade: Easy to moderate hiking. Some steep gradients. Routefinding straightforward. For explanation of grades see Grading and difficulty page.
Tour prices: See “Tour prices” below.
Tour code: K7.
