Cosa farete

We'll delve deep into the heart of the Celtic Rainforest to discover some of the unique plants and fungi that make this habitat so special and distinctive. Many of these plants are easily overlooked by the casual observer, but I'll provide lenses and microscopes to allow you to explore this environment to the full. I'll explain the roles of the organisms that we see in the ecosystem as a whole and I'll give an overview of the history of the area. Being a rainforest, expect it to be wet (!), so you'll need good sturdy boots and waterproofs.

I've been fascinated by the ancient woodlands of Wales since I was a child, and I love sharing the wonder of them with others!

I have a PhD in forest ecology and I've worked as a specialist for the Woodland Trust, Forestry Commission and at the prestigious Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. I now work as a freelance consultant as well as running a small organic farm with a herd of 6 Highland cattle and 2 Airbnb cottages at Cefn Coch Farm.

I enjoy showing people the secret gems of the forest in an fun informal manner - you won't be tested on Latin names - but I hope you'll come away with great memories.

Dove ti troverai

We'll visit one or more of the Celtic Rainforest sites in Meirionydd and Northern Ceredigion, I'll take you via footpaths to biodiversity hotspots within the woods, and perhaps clamber down into rocky areas and gorges if people are comfortable with slightly rougher terrain. These are magical places where ancient twisty oak trees are covered in epiphytic ferns, mosses and lichens, some of which are found in few other places in the world.

We really had a great afternoon on our walk with Joe! It is amazing how much you can see when you take the time to look at things you usually walk past.

We had a fascinating and insightful experience. We were the only 2 clients so felt special but having others would have opened up the discussion more. Joe’s knowledge was amazing! Would highly recommend

Joe is a lovely friendly guide who will take you to an almost magical bit of old woodland and show you lichens, ferns and mosses that you may never have seen before. A wonderful three hours- the highpoint of my holiday.

We had a really fascinating and fun morning walking in the most sublime river valley looking through magnifying glasses at lichens, mosses and ferns. A world of beauty on another scale. Joe's obviously an expert on the ecology of the area but didn't overwhelm us with science, and made interesting comments and observations. He even brought a rope so we could shimmy down a particularly steep section. We were lucky to have a warm sunny day so it couldn't have been better!

Joe a communicative, thoughtful and knowledgeable guide. He led the group, taking into account the differing mobilities of all participants, without detracting from the experience and we all felt some of the passionate joy and delight he feels in this beautiful forest.
