Who are we?

Aberystwyth University Hiking Club organises a hike every weekend, usually on Sundays. Our hikes are a great way to explore the natural landscapes of Wales on foot, getting fit, meeting new people and learning about hiking skills and the environment. They're fantastic days out and loads of fun, whatever the weather!

What else?


We also do a couple of weekends away and holidays every year, to spend a few days hiking in some of our favourite locations in the UK and beyond. We run socials starting in Scholars most thursday nights, for fun but relaxed nights out. We also hold occasional outdoor or online socials for different activities, such as night walks, bonfires and online game nights.

Why join?


If you love the outdoors, want to stay healthy, and meet new people, we're for you. AberHike is among the most active outdoor sports clubs in Aberystwyth, with weekly trips to the mountains, moorlands and more, as well as (in normal times) longer residential tours throughout the year. We welcome all abilities and fitness levels, from experienced hikers to people who have never set foot in the mountains, and our walks are clearly graded for difficulty, so you won't find yourself out of your depth. All our leaders have Mountain Leader Training and hold Emergency First Aid qualifications, so you may enjoy yourselves without having to worry. We attract members of all ages and nationalities. AberHike is particularly popular among International Exchange students as hiking is a great way to get out of Aberystwyth and see the spectacular and unique countryside of Wales and the UK.

For more information, like our Facebook page and join our Facebook group and stay up-to-date on all things AberHike! We also have an Instagram and an active Messenger group chat, that you can request to join by messaging the President or another committee member.

You can also keep up-to-date by viewing and adding our calendar, or downloading it yourself.
