  1. I have swapped hitch hiking for cycling long distance, wandering if you could recommend any overnight hikes for a beginner? love reading your blog, you remindering me why i camp and go on adventures especially when just had not so good one!


    1. hi joel, oh no! what was your not so good experience? I don’t really do overnight hikes..i either do day hikes or really long distance multi-day ones 😀

      for one week hikes that are pretty easy i would recommend the Snowdonia Way or the Lochness 360 up in Scotland.

      are you on social media? i just opened an instagram account – aimless.hitchhiker

      thanks a lot for reading my writing!


  2. Thanks for writing this up! Did you hike this in May? Or just post about it in May? Wondering what the scenery might look like end of May/early June…


      1. I’m planning to do pretty much the exact same thing in June (2023), so really happy to have found your detailed account Lisa, thanks! Bit jealous of your tent, mine’s nearly 2 kg… but hey.


  3. hi there and thank you for the informative and very readeble story. i was wondering , a friend and me wat to do this route in June next year, mainly the main route in 8 or 9 days or so, but hopefully also 1 or 2 mountain stages. do you have any thought on witch main route stages are the nicest(quiet, not to much asfalt etc) and witch ones we could best do the mountain route?


    1. Hi Johan, sorry about the slow reply. I don’t know because I didn’t do any of the higher sections. This is a lovely trail, though, so both the main route and the high variants will be enjoyable 🙂


  4. Thanks for the summary, really enjoyable and informative. I’m marking my half century on the planet by doing most of this route at the end of May but have opted for the relative comfort of B&Bs rather than camping! I’m also swerving off to finish up on Anglesey rather than in Conwy (mainly due to the lack of accommodation in the latter – my wife and son are meeting me towards the end for a hopefully triumphant crossing at Menai…). Now just have to hope for similarly decent weather. Thanks again, happy travels!
