Pilgrim Appeal

The wonderful pilgrim statue above Strata Florida now needs replacing and there is a Local Giving page for fundraising.

What we are about:

Guided Pilgrimage is a not-for-profit travel company providing a range of Celtic pilgrimage experiences in West Wales, from eight day guided face-to-face trips through to half day self-guided audio tours. Pilgrimage is about walking to a sacred destination for a reason and people who come on our pilgrimages are looking to:

 

  • Take time away from everyday life to go on an outer journey through wild and beautiful Celtic landscapes.
  • Re-connect with the old rhythms of life on pilgrim paths in the natural environment.
  • Sense the world in a whole new way and explore the bigger picture with an open mind and heart.
  • Start an inner journey of self-discovery and return home with a better idea of what they really want from life.
  • Share good company on a unique pilgrimage experience.

5-Day: The Way of St David

5000 year old burial chambers, Celtic chapels, holy wells, the great cathedral of St Davids, poetic landscapes, beautiful coast path – the list goes on!

“Chris beautifully and thoughtfully opened the mind of the students for this experimental and experiential approach to heritage and dealt in a marvellous manner with language barriers and cultural differences.”

Celtic Routes

Celtic Routes is a new initiative focusing on the whole breadth of what the Irish counties of Wexford, Wicklow and Waterford and the Welsh counties of Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire, have to offer.  And it is nothing short of stunning.  Away from any madding crowd and steeped in history, natural wonder and sheer, breathtaking beauty.  There is so much to do.

I am delighted to say that all the routes we walk at Guided Pilgrimage fall within the remit of ‘Celtic Routes’.  We are steeped in the natural world of land and sea and sky.  If you want to find out more about the project, visit their website using the link below.
