As part of the 2018 Year of the Sea in Wales this challenge series will take you from an introduction at Llyn Brenig to various points along the River Clwyd as it flows along a 35 mile course, dropping 1,200 feet to the famous beach at Rhyl.

Finish a different leg of the challenge every month starting from May all the way through to September and become a regular of North Wales as you explore it’s stunning landscape. With the walks providing a challenge you can really test yourself whilst being under the guidance and care of expert leaders.

Varied wildlife will be seen along the way and you may even be lucky to see species for which the river is well-known | the sea trout or as it is locally known the Sewin.
