We currently have three Super Challenge walks in Wales. Mark Rowe, a seasoned travel journalist, tackled the Super Challenge walks and describes them for you.

The Gower Penninsula walk saw him walk 39 miles from Crofty on the North coast to Bishopston on the South coast via Rhossili.

He also tackled the 30-mile walk of the mountains and waterways of the Brecon Beacons. Walking from Brecon via the highest peak in southern Britain, Pen y Fan to Talybont on Usk on Day one. On Day two he travelled along 200-year-old Monmouth and Brecon canal to Abergavenny.

On his third Super Challenge Mark travelled north to Snowdonia and spent two days tackling the mighty Glyders and Carneddau. Some of the most spectacular scenery in the country, if not the world.
