Plant-based hiking retreat Gower June 2024
  • Full weekend of breathtaking hiking with our experienced guide

  • 3 nights of private or shared accomodation

  • Nutritious, healthy, delicious plant-based meals and snacks throughout

  • Fun and laughter with new friends

I am delighted to announce that we will be running a plant-based hiking retreat on the Gower Peninsula in South Wales. As always, this will be a truly special, and uplifting event.

Largely untouched by the modern world, the Gower was the UK’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is full of breathtaking scenery, secret bays, coastal walks, magical woodlands, waterfalls, myths and legends.

We will be staying near Rhossili Bay, with a beach that is known as one of the most stunning in Britain.

Delicious Plant-Based Cuisine

Over the course of the retreat you’ll enjoy the most delicious, filling and inspiring plant-based meals. Think super hearty roast evening meals, superfood sweet treats, vibrant salads, delectable desserts and lunchboxes to delight your senses.

Breathtaking Hiking

Retreat Itinerary

Friday, June 28th: Arrival is from 5pm. Relax, settle in, meet your fellow adventurers, and enjoy a delicious, nourishing plant-based dinner. We will close the evening with an introduction to the weekend’s activities.

Saturday, June 29th: Starting with a wholesome and hearty breakfast we enjoy a picturesque 9-mile hike along the Rhossili Downs encompassing elevated views of the stunning bay and the Irish Sea. The day is all about wandering through ancient landscapes, adoring gorgeous bays, and taking time to stop to take in the breathtaking scenery, along with the rare plants and wildlife. The walk will conclude along the three-mile sandy beach and even a visit to a shipwreck! Our pace will be steady but gentle, allowing time for you to enjoy your tasty plant-based packed lunch and hot drinks. Following the hike, you will be ready for a fabulous and plentiful plant-based dinner, cooked by your very own private plant-based chef; Anastasia. The rest of the evening will be for sharing tales with your new friends, enjoying the sunset in the peaceful garden, having fun, or simply relaxing with a hot cup of cacao and a good book.

Sunday, June 30th: After another healthy and wholesome breakfast, new adventures await. We will be taking a coastal walk of about 5 miles along the ancient and stunning coastal paths of the Gower Peninsula. This will provide ample opportunity to stop and breathe in the majestic sites, whilst listening to local myths and legends of this special area of outstanding natural beauty.  Your efforts will be rewarded with yet another fabulous plant-based dinner, as Anastasia puts her skills to task with simple, yet delicious foods that will tantalise your tastebuds. The rest of the evening will again be for relaxing, contemplating our experience, and enjoying the sunset in the peaceful garden as you comment often about how full you feel!

Monday, July 1st: The experience will conclude with a breakfast fit for your send-off, a closing circle, and even (an optional) early morning dip in the sea before your final feast.
