The Home of Guided Tours of Mid Wales
Almost every region in Mid Wales has something interesting to discover - quiet villages, stunning scenery, historical buildings lost in the countryside...so before rushing to visit the most popular regions why not think about somewhere else for a change? You can avoid the crowds and still have a great time discovering the 'real' Mid Wales!
Welsh Overland Safari is an independent guided tour company offering unique overland guided tours of some of the most beautiful, unspoilt landscapes in Europe, as well as rare natural habitats for wildlife. One of Wales’s best kept secrets, the region has a rich and diverse history dating back to well before Roman times. Exploring the rugged Cambrian Mountains, lakes, waterfalls of the Brecon Beacons and forests!
With over 20 years’ experience, the founder Richard Davies started Welsh Overland Safari because he wanted to share his passion for the area and share his knowledge with like-minded adventurers.

You may have seen the Guardian and Observer recently gave the Heart of Wales line some much needed publicity last weekend. Although we were pleased to see that the 122 mile railway line that runs through the very “heart” of Wales from Craven Arms all the way to South Wales was given the platform to reach millions of readers throughout the UK (and the world) we were rather disappointed that many parts of and highlights linked to the line were not included. However rather than dwell on that fact we thought we would compliment the article by listing 5 other things you can see and do along the Heart of Wales railway line!
So in the mini series we will feature a church or chapel on our tours. The first of which is the Church of St Mary the Virgin in Capel-y-Ffin near Hay on Wye!
