Here at Velvet Hills we offer a range of Self guided walks for those wanting a more independent, relaxed but equally adventurous holiday.

Choose from our smaller 2/3 day local holidays here in North Wales to the bigger more challenging Offa’s Dyke Path.

Why book with us?

  • We offer a personal service, meeting you the night before your holiday starts.
  • We transfer your luggage to your next stop.
  • All accommodation is carefully selected to meet your specific needs. We also try our best to choose somewhere as close as possible to the trail, wherever possible.
  • We work closely with the hotels, giving you better value.
  • We offer a personal shopping service so if you find you need more walking socks or snacks we'll get them for you.
  • All routes have been risk assessed and checked out for any missing way markers so we can highlight these and make you aware of any changes.
  • Maps and info for your walk are provided within the cost of your holiday. However, if you have a smart phone, we do recommend that you purchase the OS Maps subscription for that added support in our more remote areas. This can be purchased from as little as £3.99 for 1 month.
