Guided Mountain Walks and Hill Walking in Wales
Call of the Wild’s qualified mountain instructors will take you up into the majestic Brecon Beacons so you can experience the wilderness of the National Park. We have the local knowledge so can ensure you maximise your mountain and hill walking experience by using ours.
Hiking in Wales is a special experience with some spectacular mountains and hill walks. We can take you off the beaten track to see some breathtaking scenery. Book a single day guided walk or a full weekend and combine a walk with other activities.
What Will I Be Doing During the Mountain Walking?
You will be guided by our qualified instructors and can either just enjoy the scenery or pick up some mountain skills such as navigation and map reading. Most of the time you’ll be amazed by the stunning views as a new vista appears around every corner or over the next brow of the hill. Our mountain guides have extensive local knowledge so will be explaining about mans influence through the ages on the landscape, it geology and geography, flora and fauna.

Where Can I do Mountain walking?
Call of the Wild’s mountain walks take place in the Brecon Beacons National Park, the nearest wilderness National Park to London and the South East. Hiking in the Park is a great experience as it has some classic guided mountain walks from river side to high peak. We tend to concentrate our mountain and hill walks in the Central and Western Beacons. We also use the Gower Peninsula, which was the first place in the UK to be designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which has some fantastic coastal walks and world famous beaches . Walking Wales is an exceptional experience. there is nothing more rewarding than walking up through the hills on a frosty morning to emerge above the clouds with bright blue skies and look back down on the mist covered valleys below. I want to be out there now not writing this!
Duration/Length of the Mountain Walking?
This is variable depending on the size, nature of the group, nature of the event and the prevailing weather conditions on the day. As a guide, the mountain or hill walking session would normally last around 3 – 4 hours. The walk can be tailored to meet your needs and abilities to ensure you get the maximum amount of enjoyment out of the day.
