A WALKING tour in Machynlleth will allow visitors to walk in the footsteps of Owain Glyndwr with a guide across the ancient Welsh countryside.

Arfon Hughes launched Dyfi Walking Tours in 2020 to provide a tourist guiding service to the areas around Mallwyd, Dinas Mawddwy and Machynlleth.

His aim with the tours is to delve into the rich history of the area, following routes travelled by Owain Glyndwr, the last native Prince of Wales in the 15th Century.

Mr Hughes said: “By walking in the wonderful Welsh landscape and its biodiversity, they get to understand what has made this part of Wales so unique. I aim to make the tours an enjoyable, fun, memorable and interesting experience.


“I have a lively interest in and a genuine passion for all things Welsh. My main interests lie in social Welsh history, language, agriculture as well as the arts, media and culture.”

His Owain Glyndwr and Machynlleth Tour includes the history of Wales’ famous independence fighter, Parliament House and Machynlleth town.

Most of the tour, which takes around 90 minutes, is on level ground, starting at Parliament House.
