Gorge Walking in Wales Description

Gorge Walking Wales

The term “Gorge Walking“  can be a bit misleading as this activity is no simple walk in the park, so we prefer to call it Gorge Scrambling or Canyoning - gorge walking typically involves walking and scrambling in the path of water, climbing up waterfalls and even traversing above pools of natural water. Also known as canyoning you may get a kick from jumping from the top of a gorge and into the pool of water below.

Do not panic, gorge walking in Wales is safe. On arrival you will be provided with a wetsuit, buoyancy aid and helmet for your gorge walking experience…as soon as you start you’ll see why! Our gorge walking routes are unique, we have been running gorge walking for many years in Wales and have discovered the most challenging, exciting, fast paced and adventurous routes set amidst spectacular scenery as you journey through the Waterfall country in the Brecon Beacons National Par, Wales.

Wales is the preferred location for gorge scrambling (gorge walking) due to its beautiful countryside which has naturally carved itself to be one of the best locations for gorge walking in Europe. You will require four or more people in your gorge walking group as it is important to have support as you will be using each other to help guide you through the activity.

Your adventure will involve scrambling up rock faces, crawling through caves, exploring and jumping of waterfalls, leaping into plunge pools and much more! There is no better place for Gorge Walking in Wales.  Choose from:

Frequently Asked Questions

Will gorge walking be too difficult ? / What if a member of our group has a fear of heights/ confined spaces etc.?
From the very start our instructors will assess the overall ability of your group, coupled with weather conditions on the day the route will be adjusted accordingly, ultimately we want you to have fun and be safe!

All (except one) of the challenging elements of this route are optional, at no times are participants under any pressure to do anything they are not comfortable with, they can simply choose to opt out. The exception to this rule is a waterfall scramble (climb without ropes) that everybody has to complete to get to the next stage- however we have managed to get everyone through...so far!
