“Enjoy Touring Without The Crowds!”

The Historic and Scenic Borderlands tour covers the Dee and Clwyd Valley areas of North East Wales, which is one of five Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Wales.

The Borderlands tour takes in the historic ruined castle at Rhuddlan, the smallest church and the smallest cathedral in all of Great Britain. At another location, we stop to visit one of the great ‘hidden gems’ of Wales, a ‘holy shrine’ where royal Kings and Queens used to visit.

The highlight of the day is discovering the UNESCO Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, where you can enjoy a scenic walk across the ‘stream in the sky’!

 The tour also takes in the scenic riverside town of Llangollen, where you can learn about the famous ‘Ladies of Llangollen’ and their residence – Plas Newydd. Also locally, there is the unique experience of stepping back in time before the age of steam to enjoy a ‘Horse drawn canal cruise.’


Then there’s the beautiful landscaped scenery of the region, where you can get to enjoy stunning views. We have a couple of beautiful short panoramic walks in the hills overlooking the valleys of the Borderlands, which take in stretches of the famous Offa’s Dyke trail.
