Coastal Foraging Walk

Short beach foraging courses held in North Wales

£35.00 per person

Original Outdoors runs coastal and beach foraging walks throughout the year. Each course follows a walk through woodlands down to a beach where we will explore the best edible plants, seaweeds and shellfish that the are has to offer.

The walks are roughly two hours in length, meeting at the beautiful seaside village of Borth y Gest (near Porthmadog) and are led by an experienced and professional forager. No previous experience is required other than being willing to explore beaches, rockpools and the inlets of this stunning part of the North Wales coast.

The walks are timed to coincide with low tide, and the start times are listed next to the dates above.
