Snowdonia to the Gower (Long Distance Walk)

Inspired by John Gillam's classic "Snowdonia to the Gower" this two week supported long distance route takes the walker on a coast to coast walk through highest Wales. From the start, each day of the fortnight's itinerary follows the route outlined in "Snowdonia to Gower". Contour will be responsible for all guiding, camp administration and transport of packs, which means that the walker can tackle the challenge unhindered, and still be reassured that a tent (with heater), warm sleeping bag and a hot meal will be waiting for them at the end of a day's walk.
