Walking in Wales and Brecon Beacons
The sky is your limit; whether it is a gentle riverside stroll through meadows, or reaching the mountain summit, we can provide the guiding to suit. Walking in the Brecon Beacons, Black Mountains and surrounding areas we endeavour to use lesser known trails and go to areas away from the usual tourist routes, which helps to provide you with a more rewarding experience, and allows you to enjoy the peace and tranquillity the countryside has to offer.
For the more active we can offer full day or overnight treks, either using local accommodation or camp sites, whichever you choose.
If you would like to venture to Snowdonia or other areas, then this can also be arranged.
If you are feeling really adventurous, we can take you searching for Geocaches on a navigation course or Wilderness Wild camping in the Brecon Beacons, completely away from all your creature comforts. Spend the night under the stars ( or in your tent if you want ), go night walking, experience what real darkness is, and if the skies are clear see amazing sunsets and the night stars. You can learn about campcraft, different types of equipment, we can even hire you certain items of equipment if necessary.
