Evening meals and lunches

You can purchase evening meals either at the accommodation or nearby. When our event planners send you the schedule with itinerary you could prearrange directly with the accommodation or during the walk.

For lunches we would suggest bringing some of your own favourite snack bars and then asking the accommodation for a packed lunch for the following day and also supplementing that at stops en-route.

Accommodation

Accommodation is generally at B&B, guest houses and small hotels. Once booked in, your event planner will send you a list of your booked accommodation. It is possible to adjust according to preference at this stage so please mention it if you wish to change.

Dog-friendly

If you would like to bring your four legged friend, then we will do our best to source dog friendly accommodation. It is usually possible but if it were not, then we would suggest a change of date to enable it or offer a refund. There may be a small surcharge for the overnight stays. Therefore, once booked in, please alert your event planner that you would like to bring your dog and we can proceed from there.

Need a guide?

If you would prefer to have a guide for your walk, even just for one day, then we are happy to help. We can provide a qualified leader (also first aid qualified) to lead your trek or on just one of the sections. Just ask us.
A guide can not only take the stress out of navigation, but you will also find them a great asset in terms of providing an insight into all things environment and nature.

Dates & Prices

For available dates please see the ‘build your trip’ option on the left hand side on desktops or at the bottom on mobiles. You can reserve your space via this route.

After you book

After placing your booking with us, you will in the first instance receive an automated email from our system confirming receipt of your reservation. If you don’t receive it, it is worth checking your spam/clutter folder.

Your personal event planner will then be in touch with you to start to confirm the details. This contact will usually be taken up in the working day after receipt of your booking, but may, in busy times, take a little longer. The event planner will then liaise with you regarding the details of the course. If you have any specific requirements, please do mention it at this stage.

At the end of your trip

If you have not booked an additional night’s stay then we can transfer your luggage to a location of your choice. From there you may have onward travel arranged as per the ‘Getting There and Back’ tab above.

Some people like to treat themselves to a night’s stay in St Dogmaels at the end. And why not? You’ve earned it. You can arrange this as an optional add on with your event planner.

Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Arrival in Saundersfoot

    Arrive at your accommodation in the seaside village of Saundersfoot.

  • Day 2 - Transfer to Amroth and walk to Manorbier

    After breakfast a short transfer (15 mins) brings you to the village of Amroth and the start of your Pembrokeshire Coastal Path adventure.

    Your first day is a great introduction to the walk, relatively easy walking with the occasional more strenuous section you make your way through a mix of cliff-tops, sandy coves and woodland before arriving in the colourful village of Tenby, a great place to stop for lunch and refreshments. The onward route to Manorbier offers easy and enjoyable walking.  As you approach the town of Manorbier why not take time to explore Manorbier Castle, which is located just off the path (Opening times can be found online.)

    15miles (24km), 2,660ft (810m) ascent

  • Day 3 - Manorbier to Bosherston

    Today, you continue along the beautiful Pembrokeshire coastline, making your way around dramatic green cliffs which steadily progress to a limestone composition whilst passing Stackpole Quay.  Be sure to spend some time in Barafundle Bay, known for its blowholes, fissures and sea caves – an arched gateway marks the top of the stone staircase that will lead you onto the beach.

    10 miles (16km), 1,780ft (540m) ascent

  • Day 4 - Bosherston to Angle

    Before you leave Bosherston today, you will need to check whether the Army’s Castlemartin Training Range is open. Range West is permanently closed, however Range East is generally open at weekends, bank holidays and during the main summer holiday period – exceptions are possible and it is best to check the website and call the phone number listed from 8:15am as changes to firing times and road closures can happen without notice.

    Your guidebook details both routes, and each has its merits before they merge just outside Warren.  From here you will re-join the coast when you approach Freshwater West, one of Wale’s best known surfing areas – take time to enjoy the surfing spectacle before continuing around the headland to Angle.

    17 miles (27km), 2,560ft (780m) ascent

    Alternative Route – 14miles (22km), 1,130ft (406m) ascent

  • Day 5 - Angle to Pembroke

    You will experience a mix of scenery, from beautiful beaches to wonderful patches of woodland, as you make your way along the route today.  Although todays route covers the more industrialised area of the coast path, there are some excellent nature hotspots along the journey so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the local wildlife.  When you reach Pembroke, a highlight is its 900 year old Norman castle, Pembroke Castle – the birthplace of Henry VII and the Tudor dynasty.

    15 miles (23.5km), 1,705ft (520m) ascent

  • Day 6 - Pembroke to Hebrandston

    Leaving Pembroke, you will make your way through the industrial area of Pembroke Dock, before crossing the Cleddau Bridge – be sure to take in the wonderful views across the estuary as you walk across.  Your route then continues to Milford Haven, from where the path leaves the industrial surroundings and returns to a more rural, coastal setting.

    When you reach Sandy Haven, follow the lane towards Hebrandston where you will find your accommodation for the evening.

    16 miles (25km), 2,080ft (630m) ascent

  • Day 7 - Hebrandston to Marloes

    Before you leave Hebrandston, be sure to check the tide times for both Sandy Haven and Pickleridge/Musselwick Point – two inlets on todays route that are within tidal estuaries and will become impassable at high tide.  Walking diversions are available for both, however they will add distance onto todays itinerary.

    Our walk today sees the landscape growing wild and rugged as we head around the Dale peninsula – the highlight of which is St Ann’s Head.  Take time to enjoy the beauty of Marloes Sands before heading inland to Marloes where you will find your accommodation.

    16 miles (26km), 1,900ft (580m) ascent

    Alternative Route – Sandy Haven: Plus 4 miles (6.5km)

    Alternative Route – Musselwick Point: Plus 3 miles (4.8km) 

  • Day 8 - Marloes to Broad Haven

    Return to the trail at Marloes Sands and head west for a pleasant walk along the cliff tops.  Today you will pass the Skomer Group of islands, known and protected for their important seabird breeding grounds – including puffins, Manx shearwater, storm petrel and gannets. A ferry service to Skomer Island operates in summer from Martin’s Haven, should you have the time to add a trip into your adventure.

    14 miles (23km), 2,200ft (670m) ascent

  • Day 9 - Broad Haven to Solva

    A change in the type of cliff rock on this next section leads to a more strenuous day – streams have cut through the softer rock, creating a much more undulating terrain than the past few days.  Don’t let this daunt you though, there are a number of fine sandy breaches to enjoy on todays route, such as Madoc’s Haven and Newgale Sands; and this section is one of the most popular on the Coast Path due to it’s beautiful scenery.

    12 miles (19km), 2,350ft (720m) ascent

  • Day 10 - Solva to Whitesands Bay

    There is a great deal of interest in todays journey, with this section of the path steeped in history, rugged scenery and the most westerly point in mainland Wales.

    Re-join the trail at Solva and enjoy the rugged scenery that this section of the trail has to offer – it’s popular with adrenaline seekers so keep an eye out for kayakers, climbers, and coasteerers!  Just south of St David’s you will reach St Non’s Bay, overlooked by the remains of St Non’s Chapel, the reputed birthplace of St David.  Just after Porthlysgi Bay, you will reach Pen Dal-aderyn which is distinguished as the most westerly place in mainland Wales. From here views of Ramsay Island and Ramsey Sound accompany you until you reach the impressive Whitesands Bay.

    A regular bus operates between Whitesands Bay and St David’s through the summer, which you will use to transfer to your accommodation for the evening.

    12 miles (19km), 2,165ft (660m) ascent

  • Day 11 - Whitesands Bay to Trefin

    This stretch of coast has a wonderful sense of remoteness, wild and beautiful, the hard volcanic rocks in this area have created a ruggedness that wouldn’t be out of place in the high mountains.  The walking, although strenuous in places, is relatively straight forward – be sure you have plenty of refreshments as stopping points are limited along todays route.

    12 miles (19km), 2,340ft (700m) ascents 

  • Day 12 - Trefin to Fishguard

    Another day to pack plenty of refreshments, as this part of the trail continues to be remote and sparsely populated.   The walking today is over undulating ground so can be taxing – the views more than make up for the hard work though!  Make time to see the beaches at Abercastle and Aber Mawr, and keep an eye to the sea at Stumble Head for seabirds and porpoises.

    19 miles (30km), 3,840ft (1170m) ascents 

  • Day 13 - Fishguard to Newport

    Be sure to check out the Last Invasion Tapestry in Fishguard Fort Town Hall before you leave on todays hike, a great depiction of local history!  Re-join the footpath and head East along the coastpath, before you reach Pwllgwaelod there is a lovely little secret beach to explore – watch out for the steep paths down and up the other side.

    You can head up Pen Y Fan on Dinas Island, one of the highest points on the Coast Path – this will reward you with great views before you continue round to your finishing point of the day in Newport.

    12 miles (19km), 2,720ft (830m) ascents 

  • Day 14 - Newport to St Dogmaels

    Your final hiking day may be long, but the wild surroundings and beautiful cliff scenery make it very much worth the challenge!

    In late summer, you may be lucky enough to spot Atlantic Grey seal pups in the sheltered coves that frequent this section of the coast path. The summit of Caemes Head gives you spectacular views all the way back along the route you have hiked, see if you can spot the lighthouse at Stumble Head and any dolphins in the Estuary.

    Your route then continues to St Dogmaels, where your journey on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path ends – make time to celebrate your achievement!

    17 miles (28km), 3,230ft (980m) ascents

Maximum Adventure exceeded expectations, planning a trip for me last minute and off season through the glorious Lake District. The hotels were top rate, as was the food and my daily gluten free sandwich. Nathalie got the route guide sent to me in a couple of days and the baggage service was impeccable. It was the only tour guide company that responded immediately to my last minute request. Looking forward to more adventures with your company!!!

David and I walked the Speyside Way in September 2023 and very much enjoyed the adventure. Maximum Adventure Ltd organised our nightly accommodation and uplifting of our luggage in a seamless manner, which made the whole trip so easy with no stress. This is the second time that I have personally used Maximum Adventures Ltd and I would recommend them to others as they offer a friendly and efficient service.

We realy appreciated the tour we did on Hadrians Wall path in May.Beautiful scenery, decent weather, god arrangements including lodging, transport, bagagehandling etc. We came well prepared . In this preparation Maximum adventures gave us great support, as we are coming from abroad with no knowledge of conditions on the path. We had great BnBs and could concentrate on de daily walks that gave us great pleasure.Thank you England and Hadrians Wall path for your friendly reception and well mantained walking path.Thank you Maximum Adventures for your good service.We would love to come back in the future.

Maximum Adventure did a great job for us. With less than a month's notice, it set up an itinerary, lodging and luggage porterage for a walk from Carlisle to Newcastle, England along Hadrian's Wall. The lodging was fantastic, as was the itinerary and support during the walk. We'd definitely use Maximum Adventure again and would recommend them without reservation!

I was part of a climb on 23/09, didn't think I would make ut, but I did. The descent was a different story.. I got jelly legs and lost my confidence. If it wasn't for James, my Sherpa would never have made it. Can't thank him enough, Will, met you briefly.Both of them were very knowledgeable, we had the most amazing views at the summit...the pain is still worth it and

I walked the West Highland Way with my dad and brother. The organisation was excellent by Samantha. Itinerary and instructions were clear and all the bookings and luggage transfers went smoothly. As a result we were able to ensure the fantastic walk and not worry about anything. I would happily recommend Maximum Adventure to others.

We just got home from our 8-days Hadrian's Wall hike and we just loved it!Everything was perfectly organized!We had great B&Bs and hotels with very friendly, welcoming and helpful staff. Our favorite was the Dacre House with Clare. But then again, all were great!The luggage was always at the day's destination, no matter how early we got to the accommodation.The description of how to get to the accommodations were clear and precise.The road map and the guide book were waiting for us as we got to the first B&B and were very helpful and interestingThanks, Maximum Adventure!

Praise for the West Highland Hike and the Maximum Adventure planners, esp. our planner Samantha. Great experience in every regard.

Booked for the 3 UK Peaks adventure, it was organised perfectly and everything when to plan. Accommodation was good, transport excellent, our guide (Patrick) brilliant, so cannot fault the trip and adventure. I personally expected too much from myself and was unable to fully summit as this adventure is not for beginners, I climbed Kilimanjaro in 2003 when I was 42 and twenty years later, although relatively fit, my endurance didn't last. So I did a half summit for Ben Nevis & Scafell, thanks to Patrick for letting go back down on my own, it was brilliant. With Snowdon, a half summit is tricky as you can't descend the way you go up, so I decided to do some hiking in the area while the rest of the group did the climb. I took a chance and went to the ticket office and managed to get a single return ticket up to the summit of Snowdon at 9am which returned down by 11.30am. I was hoping to see my group on top and spring a surprise but the weather was terrible. I highly recommend the trip but make sure you are fit enough otherwise as there is an emphasis on time, so a slow walk up is going to slow everyone down and really delay the trip. Have Fun, Simon Bradish
