Aircraft Crash Site Tour
The hills and mountains of England and Wales offer some wild and remote areas to explore. Full of spectacular landscapes and stunning views they also hold stories of heroic people and their fair share of tragedies.
During the Second World War young pilots and crew from all over the world came to the UK to train and fly missions from the many bases in England and Wales. Many never made it home.
Over the course of the weekend we will aim to visit as many sites as possible (there are six in the area). Exact routes will depend on group ability and the weather.
We’ll base ourselves at the Dan-yr-Ogof campsite for both nights.
Distances covered each day will be 7-10 miles (11-16km) depending on route chosen. Some of the route will be away from paths, there’ll be some steep climbs and descents, some streams will need crossing. Be prepared for an adventure on the path less travelled.
Price includes your campsite fees.
We’ve got tents/stoves/sleeping bags and rucksacks to hire if you’re new to the whole camping thing.
