Itinerary

Day 1: Learn Bushcraft

Meet your host at their headquarters in St Davids at 10:00. You’ll then be trained in the art of bushcraft and taught how to navigate and cook using minimal utensils. After two hours of training, you’ll be kitted out with all you need to survive in the wild.

The real challenge starts at 12:00. Jump in the minibus for a five-minute drive to St Nons Chapel. Then, armed only with a map and your mind, you’ll find your way to a clifftop location, where a chest concealing your first puzzle awaits. Within it is all you need to abseil down 50ft to the water’s edge.

From here, you’ll ‘coasteer’ – a mixture of cliff jumping, scrambling and swimming – for an hour and a half, collecting clues as you go, before clambering out of the water and attempting your first climb.

Next, you’ll follow the clues to the next section, eventually ending up at Caer Bwdy beach and the mysteriously named Forbidden Bay. You’ll then kayak and have an opportunity to fish for mackerel.

Back on shore, you’ll set up camp and put your bushcraft skills into action by building some beach shelters with tarps. Your guides will teach you how to clean and prepare them properly. This will be followed by dinner and campfire stories, before curling up for a sleep under the stars.

Day 2: Kayak along Pembrokeshire's coast

Wake up early, tuck into some breakie and then it’s time to make your way to the last destination. Begin by paddling to Points Castle beach, where you’ll have to work as a team to win some goodies before making your way to Newgale beach. You’ll have some time to unwind and play in the surf, then it’s back to your host’s HQ.

Note: This itinerary and the duration of the activities are subject to change due to group abilities and preferences, and weather conditions and forecasts.

Please Note

All our adventures take place in wild places. Things can go wrong in wild places. Your perfectly planned itinerary may change a bit (or a lot) if the weather turns, someone gets hurt, or a volcano erupts. Usually though, changes make it all the better.

Accommodation

You’ll spend the night under the stars camping by the water’s edge. Be soothed to the sleep by the sound of the sea lapping on the beach and wake up to the sun’s reflection on its surface. You’ll be hidden away from the crowds and enjoy a back-to-basics night in the comfort of a bivvy tent.

Location

Found on the tip of Wales’ south western coast, Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park is a wild wonder. With volcanic coastlines and glacially formed valleys, the park stretches across 612 square kilometres; encompassing St Dogmaels in the north, Amroth in the south and the Preseli Hills and The Daugleddau Estuary scattered across its heartlands. You’ll have 24-hours to explore its stunning beaches, beautiful hills and desolate cliff faces.
