We have a range of stunning walks available for this Autumn so why not book yourself on for a memorable experience in the wilds of Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons). Take a look at the 3 options below which are now available.
Walk 1 – The Four Waterfalls
View the spectacular and world famous four waterfalls and actually walk behind the highest in Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons)! How would you like to walk behind this waterfall?
This is a full day walk and require a reasonable level of fitness. However you don’t have to be a mountain goat as we use well defined, albeit slightly uneven, paths to access the waterfalls. Good walking boots are ideal and don’t forget to charge your phone to ensure you can take all the photos!
Walk 2 – The High and Lows of Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons)
Climb the highest and lowest mountains in Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons). We all know that Pen y Fan is the highest mountain in Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons) at 886m but do you know what the lowest is? Well depending on what definition you use its’ Garreg Lwyd in the Western Beacons at 616m. Be one of the first to join a unique band to have done both in the same day!
Pen y Fan is spectacular at any time of the year but now is a good time as the crowds have gone.
Walk 3 – Remote Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons)
The mountainous areas of Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons) National Park are without question an outstanding area for all those who love walking in the hills. However, these mountains hide a harsher and more sinister side. In bad weather conditions, this area can be harsh and unforgiving. It is not just by accident therefore, that the Special Air Service (SAS), choose this part of Wales for much of their training and selection process. Over thirty aircraft crash sites are recorded within the Park.
This walk takes place in the one of the remotest parts of the Park way off the beaten track and the furthest from any road of settlement. It takes in two aircraft crash sites, sink holes, ancient standing stones and stunning views. A full day.
The crash site of Wellington Bomber MF509, at Garreg Goch (Red Stone), in the western Beacons, still has a great deal of wreckage. On the night of 20th November 1944, Wellington MF509 from 22 Operational Training Unit, Wellesbourne, Mountford, on a cross country exercise, developed trouble in the starboard Hercules XVI engine and flew into shower clouds, building up heavy layers of ice on the wings. With insufficient power from the port engine, the aircraft lost height and crashed into Garreg Goch killing all six Canadian crew members.
Accommodation can be provided if you would like to stay the night. Ask for further details.
