The Vaga Story - Pumlumon

There are heaps of energizing times to be experienced upon or near the River Wye (Welsh - Afon Gwy) none more so than sunset at source. In August 2014 we hiked up to the source as part of a 1000 - mile hike amid its waters, valleys, mountains and settlements.

We are honoured and overjoyed to receive the support of a man that's said to be the 'Worlds greatest living explorer' none other than 'Ranulph Feinnes'.

I have travelled a lot over the years and been lucky to see some of the remotest and most beautiful of environments but there is still a thrill in exploring our own back country. The River Wye is one of the UK’s most pristine and dramatic rivers. Exploring its ecology, its wider waters and its history is well worthwhile. I encourage anyone to support the Wye Explorer. It has my moral support and I recommend it as a highly commendable project

Catch The Word

This gem of a saying comes from reading the book 'The Old Ways' by Robert Macfarlane.

'To walk is to gather treasure'

It's so spot on when we consider the senses at play and the myriad of things stimulating our vision as we step onto a trail or a simple local walk. It was a comment made by Miguel Angel Blanco an associate of Robert Macfarlane in Spain. 'Caminar es atesorar' is the Spanish saying it's derived from.

Absolutely fantastic. I'm so inspired by the adventure. Nikki Tyler (organiser of the Crocodile8 race and trail runner)

Simply brilliant. Your project is a labour of love and very interesting. Your film work is second to none.
Jimmy Kenyon - (Former Hereford Mayor & Parachute Regiment)

A must for walkers from all over. Do you want outdoor theatre, a short walk, taking in a unusual feature or maybe music as you walk? This site has got it all. (South wales outdoor enthusiast and hiker) Patrick
