The Brecon Beacons National Park offers a range of guided walks for all abilities throughout the year.For those with an interest in how this area became so great it is worth noting that Fforest Fawr is one of Europes 42 Geoparks and many activities and walks are held each year to promote understanding of the area.

The Brecon Beacons Society has both guided and self guided walks available as well as navigation courses. There are a couple of good walks in the Western Area of the Park. While Leaping Stiles   website contains information on walks in Mid Wales.  If you would like to have Guided Walks Steve and Michelle can tailor walks to you, your interests or your needs, alternatively you can join one of their regular jaunts, they are very friendly and great fun.
