The Vaga Story - Pumlumon
There are heaps of energizing times to be experienced upon or near the River Wye (Welsh - Afon Gwy) none more so than sunset at source. In August 2014 we hiked up to the source as part of a 600 - mile hike amid its waters, valleys, mountains and settlements.
Due to all big tech companies across the globe removing Adobe Flash as of Jan 2021 it's meant our web providers have changed the software that powers our editor meaning we cannot currently edit this site. In fact during this global shift they expected us to just build a new website. At first we were angry but have since decided that we will actually move on from our current web providers and build another site better with more relevant content regarding walking the Wye catchment, camping and enjoying the great outdoors here. Thank you for your visit.
Simply brilliant. Your project is a labour of love and very interesting. Your film work is second to none.

A must for walkers from all over. Do you want outdoor theatre, a short walk, taking in an unusual feature or maybe music as you walk? This site has got it all. (South wales outdoor enthusiast and hiker) Patrick

The guest photo is by Dave otherwise known as noakeswalker on Youtube. It's a vintage photo of an expedition to the source of the River Wye on Plynllimon in Wales in the mid to late 80's. Dave is stood looking East down the main gully. These are special places and invoke all the wildness and magic of the land. GO TO GALLERY
I'm inspired by the Wye

We are honoured and overjoyed to receive the support of a man that's said to be the 'Worlds greatest living explorer' none other than 'Ranulph Feinnes'.
I have travelled a lot over the years and been lucky to see some of the remotest and most beautiful of environments but there is still a thrill in exploring our own back country. The River Wye is one of the UK’s most pristine and dramatic rivers. Exploring its ecology, its wider waters and its history is well worthwhile. I encourage anyone to support the Wye Explorer. It has my moral support and I recommend it as a highly commendable project
