Welcome to the Isle of Anglesey Walking and Outdoor Festival. From May 25th to June 7th you can walk, see and learn about the beautiful island of Anglesey with its many myths and legends. Visit quaint coastal and rural villages with their tales of shipwrecks and ghosts and explore the island’s industrial heritage on the Holyhead and Copper Coin tours. See the variety of wildlife and wetlands of the local nature reserves, and, new for 2013, an otters, minks and voles walk!
The 2013 festival includes more family friendly events, walks accessible to all and an exciting programme for schools. In addition there will be a weekend of challenges, beginning with the Holy Island Challenge, where you can walk, coasteer, cycle or kayak the Holy Island coast with Anglesey Wildlife Walks, or take on the Full Monty – walk all 125 miles of the Coastal Footpath, with Crwydro Môn Walking Holidays. Take a relaxing bus tour with Celticos and explore your ‘roots’ or the history of the island; or cycle a 100k or 50k route across Anglesey at your own pace (organised by Audax). Should you wish a lesser challenge why not try one of our four shorter cycling routes, or wander the coast of Anglesey with GeoMôn looking for fossils and see and hear about the unique geology of the island and its dangerous coastline that was responsible for so many shipwrecks.
All our walks are guided by experienced, informative guides who will ensure your enjoyment during the festival and several walks are on the Coastal Footpath and feature stunning scenery, flora and fauna with varied geological rock formations - home to a large variety of nesting bird colonies, which is ideal for birdwatchers.
