Gorge Walking Wales from only £40pp
Our Gorge Walking experience (aka Gorge Scrambling) typically involves scrambling, climbing, crawling, waterfall jumps and much more. For full details take a look at our photos and video below taken on the routes we use.
We have been running gorge scrambling for many years and have perfected the most challenging, exciting and adventurous experience available.
Where does Gorge Walking take place?
The Brecon Beacons national park is the perfect setting 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 Gorge Walking in Wales is only 45 minutes drive from Cardiff or 25 minutes from Swansea.
This activity 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. We offer the best Gorge Walking (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.
What equipment do you provide?
We will supply you with suitable kit either a winter wetsuit or a two layered system i.e. full length & shorty. This will ensure a minimum of 6mm core to keep you as warm as possible to 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.
To arrange a booking we require a minimum group size of four. If you do not have a minimum group size you are welcome to join one of our open events.
For our ultimate weekend of adventure include our Survival Skills experience and overnight Wild camping which takes place nearby, exclusive site for your group only!
