On arrival you will be provided with a wetsuit, buoyancy aid and helmet …as soon as you start you’ll see why! Our gorge walking experience is unique and we have been running this activity for many years. During this time have developed the most challenging, exciting, fast paced and adventurous experience set amidst spectacular scenery.
The Brecon Beacons national park is the perfect setting for Gorge Walking it covers 500 square miles and has been designated an area of outstanding natural beauty it also includes South Wales highest mountain- Pen y fan. The location for this activity is only 45 minutes drive from Cardiff in South Wales or 25 minutes from Swansea.
Gorge Walking takes place in area known locally as Waterfall Country, both brimming with life and wreathed in legend. As you can see the term “Gorge Walking” can be quite misleading as this activity is no simple walk in the park! so we tend to call it Gorge Scrambling (aka Canyoning) We believe we offer the best Gorge Walking (or Gorge Scrambling) experience in the Brecon Beacons but dont just take our word for it, take a look at our numerous Trip Advisor reviews to see what previous customers have to say.
We will supply you with suitable kit either a winter wetsuit or a two layered system i.e. full length & shorty- min of 6mm core to ensure you stay as warm as possible and fully enjoy this activity we also provide buoyancy aids and helmets, participants will only need to bring along a pair of old trainers or boots. We also offer neoprene socks these are more comfortable and will keep your feet warmer than your own socks, in very cold cold conditions we also provide neoprene gloves.

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!
