The Dyfi Valley opens wide as it approaches Cardigan Bay on the west coast of Wales and ends in sandy beaches and dunes. It cradles the westerly spur of Powys, southern Gwynedd, Ceredigion north of Aberystwyth, and the southern rim of Snowdonia National Park.

This corner of Wales specialises in all things green – not just because it’s home to the Centre for Alternative Technology. The mountains framing the valley are green. The fields are too, of course. And the people here care for the place they love.

Dyfi Valley Way

The Dyfi Valley Way is a long distance footpath that help is partly waymarked in the United Kingdom running through North Wales. The 108 miles (174 km) route runs from Borth to Aberdyfi via Machynlleth. The route is highly varied in character and directs the walker along seldom walked routes. A good map is required and, if it can be found, the route guide. The Dyfi valley provides the natural frontier between north and south Wales.
