A walk on the woolly side: sheep trekking in Wales

Follow the leader … sheep trekking in Wales

It’s the tour for those who like to follow. Visitors to Wales can now enjoy sheep trekking; roaming the Brecon Beacons national park in the company of our wooly farmyard friends.

The concept – which is new to the region – is being offered by Good Day Out along with Aberhyddnant Farm, who have trained a flock of Jacob sheep for the purpose.

Visitors can select their own sheep, which will then accompany them (with the help of a rope halter), on a two-and-a-half-hour trek towards the Black Mountains with views towards Pen y Fan.

Ewe and yours …

Although the sheep aren’t used for carrying large loads, they will be fitted with harness that can carry a light lunch – you’ve just got to hope the flock don’t conspire to eat your sandwiches.

While visitors to Wales can already enjoy llama trekking, according to the organisers this is the “native” option.

• Sheep trekking tours offered on dates throughout August and September. Adults £35, children aged 16 and under £25. For more information visit gooddayout.co.uk. Money raised will be donated to the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution
