Wales : Offa’s Dyke to Happy Valley
We start this Welsh week of off- roading from just across the border in England at Erdisland, where after only a few minutes of driving along Oak lined lanes we plunge across the River Arrow to start our journey in Offa’s footsteps. The route continues along an excellent track that has just come back into use after some re-routing to pass a farm, Water Break its Neck Track. This track crosses the Radnor Forest to Dolau and has spectacular views across the Welsh hills towards Rhayader.
We also give you the opportunity to visit historic sites and wildlife reserves. Here in Wales the red kite, once extinct has been successfully re-introduced and it all started at Gigrin Farm near Rhayader.

Nant-y-Moch is a mountainous area between the A44 and the Dovey river valley. It is criss-crossed with many rock tracks, with lots of small river crossings and some lovely rock climbs. On this adventure we spend a lot of time up here on our way to and from Machynellth and Happy Valley. There are also some wonderful views out across Cardigan Bay from the top of the track to Tal-y-bont.
We also use this area to Wild Camp on our camping adventures as it is beautifully wild up here and you feel as though you are miles away from everywhere. The night sky up here is as amazing as a Sahara sky
Fantastic Mountain and Moorland Tracks and Mining Relecs
One of the wonderful things about the tracks in Wales, are that they are often long and have some of the most fantastic views in the United Kingdom. Our route uses rock and high moorland tracks that are bursting with wildlife and Mining history. In Mant-y-Moch our route takes us past a mining valley where the chimney has been rebuilt and an information board explaining the history surrounding the valley has been put in place. Every year the wildlife is increasing and as well as Buzzards we now see Red Kites, that have now spread out over the whole of England and Wales
Lanes and Byways
All of the lanes and byways that we use are carefully researched and driven before the adventure by our support teams. We use the GLASS website TW2 which has all of the rights of way in the UK documented with their legal status as well as any relevant notes on condition and other considerations.
