8 Classic Views

Whilst hiking the Wye from source we have come across some pretty epic views.

In fact, they're moments that change our perspective because being fully immersed in an epic view we become the land through which we meander and if its epic or magical then we're epic and magical to.

Thumbs Up For The Wye

What did one of the worlds greatest survival experts 'Lofty John Wiseman' and said to be the worlds greatest living explorer Ranulph Fiennes say about the Wye and the simple act of exploring it? Check out the link below to find out.  


It's long been known that the upper Wye is home to that huge extent of mountain moor  the Plynlimon/Pumlumon massif, which feeds the Wye and other celebrated rivers such as the Severn and the Rheidol. Leading up to the massif is the Wye Valley Walk that takes you through the Wye Valley amid forest and farmsteads that have stood the test of time. Plynlimon/Pumlumon looms in the distance and its interior is obscured from the world of the lower valley where Llangurig and Rhayader go about their business. It's an area that Robert Gibbings knew well for a time as he wrote 'Coming Down The Wye,' a celebration of this remote Welsh  enclave and its culture. Captured in this short 3 minute video is this very area evocative in every way.
