Walking from the northern side of the hills, we will include two ridges that give great views and strenuous walking. This is a British classic of hill walking.

Sgwd Gwladys, Waterfall Country

Tour 2 - A walking and driven tour around The Waterfall Country


The south of the Brecon Beacons National Park comprises the Fforest Fawr Geopark and spectacular limestone and sandstone rock formations that form a series of immense waterfalls. Spring is one of the best seasons to see these waterfalls - there is little leaf cover to obscure the views while the rivers are still discharging the winter's rain and snowmelt. Our tour will circumnavigate the area and give a number of opportunities to visit some of the very best of our waterfalls including Sgwd-Yr-Eira (the Spout of Snow) and Sgwd Gwladys (St Gladys' Falls).

Walking can be energetic depending on clients' wishes and desire to see these memorable waterfalls which can be heard roaring deep in their wooded chasms long before they may be glimpsed.
