Adventures & Escapes

AUTUMN WILD WOMEN SWIM/HIKE ESCAPE
at nature’s pace

£255.00

Imagine giving yourself the gift of time to breathe, to immerse yourself in breath-taking landscapes, to hike looking out upon wild seascapes, to swim in the sparkling azure seas of Anglesey, gazing across to the Snowdonia mountain range or watching the choughs wheel overhead, to discover how the magic of the outdoors can bring you health and happiness, to spend evenings of shared laughter, stories and fun with like-minded Wild Women.

This enchanting escape on the stunning island of Anglesey – limited to 15 places – will take you away from the everyday to experience how nature and the sea truly are a miracle treatment.

The science is now clear that developing a deeper connection to the green places and blue spaces of our natural world, is profoundly important for our physical health and mental wellbeing.

Make your escape to reconnect, rewild and restore at nature’s pace.

Friday 11th Oct from 5 p.m. to Sunday 13th October 3p.m.
