What's it all about?
 STEPtember is a month long walking festival highlighting the wonders of the Cambrian Mountains - all walks are free and guided you just need to book.

Walking in the company of  a donkey is a unique walking experience. Both meditative and leisurely. We will travel at the natural pace of the donkeys, taking in the environment from a different perspective, taking the natural breaks the donkeys will instigate and drawing our focus to the things that the donkeys find interesting. Donkeys have the ability to instill us with a sense of peace and calm which bring a new dimension to the way you experience a walk in the beautiful Cambrian mountains.

The route follows parts of the Welsh national trail known as Glyndwr's Way and offers spectacular views of the Dyfi valley , Cadair Idris and area surrounding Dyfi Donkey Wood. While only approximately 7 miles in length the walk may take about 3.5 hours due to the leisurely pace the donkeys will set. This is considered a moderate walk on an established trail but with some short sharp ascents and descents.

During the walk you will be able to really understand the characters of the donkeys that accompany us and Louise will be available to answer any questions you may have about these wonderful creatures. It may even be possible for you to lead one of the donkeys on the walk.

This walk launches the new Dyfi Donkey Guided Walks .. be one of the first to experience them
