Dyfi Valley Way

164 km / 102 miles

Ceredigion, Gwynedd, Powys
The Dyfi (English Dovey) valley is one of the most beautiful valleys in Wales. This route follows the north side of the Dyfi through Pennal and the centre for Alternative Technology at Llwyngwern Quarry. Across the site of King Arthur's last battle at Camlan, the Way takes in the strenuous climb up to the summit of Aran Fawddwy, which at 2,971ft is the highest peak south of Snowdon. At Llanuwchllyn the route retraces its steps south of the Dyfi through Llanymawddwy and Machynlleth. The walk links with the Meirionnydd Coast Walk at Aberdyfi.
