Three hills in a day

Tim and Patrik head to Gower in search of the world's ninth-best beach

A hill that fails to top 200m barely counts as a day out; you could probably squeeze it in before breakfast. But stitch three of them together and it looks like more of a challenge. Throw in some sand dunes and one of the world’s top ten beaches and you have the ingredients for a mini classic.

A wild camp in Wales

Sometimes, you don’t need a fixed plan for a good walk

The only things required are a map, a backpack crammed with kit and food (and maybe some wine, if space allows) and a vague sense of which direction to start off in. With those essentials, the world is your oyster. Or the Brecon Beacons are, at least.

Maps - where would we be without them?

The Car Free Walks website is run as a 'labour of love'

We make no personal profit from it and are content with the warm glow of satisfaction when things go well and people tell us we do a good job. It also gives us an excuse to get out and explore the countryside and to buy lots of lovely paper maps to help us find our way when we get there.

Create your walk and win!

Each quarter we enter everyone who submits a car-free walk to our website into a prize draw to win some goodies.
