Hiking Club

Hiking Club

Get out of the city and see some of the most stunning scenery that the country has to offer with Cardiff University’s Hiking Club.

Every weekend we run two hikes to various areas across the South of Wales and across the English border. Explore the Brecon Beacons, see the beautiful coastline of Pembrokeshire and follow the rivers of the Wye Valley. We travel by public transport and on the SU minibuses, depending on destination and availability. Escape Cardiff and see the sites of Wales! Our hikes are of varying difficulty meaning that we try to accommodate everyone from the mountain goats to those that are fearful of a set of stairs!

We run multiple weekend breaks throughout the year and a week-long expedition at the start of the summer. In the last years we organised weekends to Pembrokeshire, the national parks Lake District, Snowdonia and Exmoor and the Isle of Skye. With prices for weekend trips starting at roughly £35 (For food, travel & accommodation) this is not an opportunity to be missed!

The Hiking Club is a great place to make friends, both on walks and the socials that we run every Tuesday. As well as pub socials we venture out to some of Cardiff’s best venues including ice-cream parlours, trampoline parks and cinemas. We also enjoy great food together to celebrate important events such as Christmas and the end of the year. We pride ourselves on having socials that everyone can enjoy meaning both alcohol and non alcohol socials!

Erasmus student? Memberships available for a single term. If you are leaving Cardiff after a single term, don’t worry about having to pay for the whole year. Our club allows you to purchase a membership for just the term you’re studying at half-price.
