Welcome to Wild Wales Tours!

This past September Wild Wales Tours led a four day tour around Wales for the fans of the American author, Sarah Woodbury. Sarah has written more than 40 historical novels set in medieval Wales. Enthusiastic readers of Sarah’s novels traveled from seven different countries to visit historical sites featured in her books.

 

Sarah met with us at Bangor University and presented to us along the way. Our first 

stop was in Beaumaris, on the Isle of Anglesey for a visit to the castle. As we made our way 

around the northeast coast of the island, we visited Din Lligwy, an ancient village settlement. On our way back to Beaumaris we visited Bryn Celli Ddu, a Neolithic burial ground. There was much camaraderie between the guests, who had met through an online book site and were enjoying their first time together in person. We then visited the castles at Harlech and Castell-Y-Bere, and numerous other sites. 

 

Sarah, an anthropologist, fell in love with Wales when she first visited  as a Cambridge University student. Sarah will be featured in an upcoming short documentary film on King Arthur, produced by Wild Wales Tours.

 

Also in in September, Wild Wales Tours led a ten-day trip through Wales from Llandudno to 

Cardiff, visiting castles, Tintern Abbey, The National Slate Museum, and listening to a male voice 

choir practicing in the slate mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog. We also visited Dylan Thomas’ home and the Welsh Senedd (parliament), and were serenaded by harpists during our memorable lunch at the Talbot Tavern in Tregaron, and at our last banquet dinner at the Marriott Hotel in Cardiff.

 

Please contact us if you would like to have a custom bus trip or Walkabout in the Snowdonia  

National  Park, along the Welsh Coastal Path, or anywhere else in Wales led by native Welsh-speaking guides in 2025 and 2026. We can arrange your trip for groups of eight or more, and visit the sites that are of the greatest interest to you. Create a special trip for your group, family, book club or Welsh Society!

 

Kind regards,

During the day we will take in incredible sights, including Snowdonia National Park, castles, abbey ruins, Roman structures, Pryseli Hills, rugged coastlines with crashing waves and sandy beaches. Many of the woodlands will be carpeted with Bluebells in May, and August and September will bring purple heather on the mountains. By night we will dine in pubs and taverns, taking in the sounds of local choirs, traditional folk music and storytelling. With us you will not be another face in the crowd; you will have the opportunity to mingle with the locals.
