Gorge Walking is one of the most popular events with all groups, waterfall climbs, wild swimming, trekking through rivers, climbing river banks, rapid runs and jumping off waterfalls into crystal clear plunge pools all in the stunning setting of the waterfalls region in the Brecon Beacons National Park
in South Wales.
Gorge Walking is the best way to combine various activities, such as walking, climbing, swimming, trekking, bouldering, jumping etc, in a beautiful environment. Imagine navigating through deep clefts at the side of a beautiful mountain, climbing up cascades and jumping into crystal clear deep mountain plunge pools, there’s no better way of finding an outdoor adventure!
Gorge Walking is an absolute favourite with all groups including stag groups, hens parties, youth groups, scout groups and company outings being just 45 minutes from Cardiff, 25 minutes from Swansea, 20 minutes from Brecon town itself.
Who is Gorge Walking Suitable For?
You don’t need any previous experience to go Gorge Walking. Our experienced guides can tailor the event to suit all levels of experience and ability. Most persons of general fitness and ability and above the age of 10 years old are able to take part in Gorge activities.
Most parts of the activity are optional so if the bigger jumps are not your thing or the thought of swimming in the rivers doesn't appeal then there is always the option to observe while still partaking in the whole event.
We take a huge variety of groups on the gorge, from Stag Parties and Hen parties to corporate team building and scout troops. We’ve welcomed both the young and not so young. Virtually anybody can enjoy the beautiful Brecon Beacons through Gorge Walking.
Do I need to be a Strong Swimmer?
The short answer is, No.
You will be provided all the required safety equipment for any Gorge Walking activity, including a buoyancy aid and our experienced guides can alter almost every part of the activity to cater for different levels. If you are particularly nervous around water, get in touch and we can go through things in more detail with you.
What Should I Bring Gorge Walking?
We provide you with all of the required safety equipment for all Gorge Walking activities. These include wetsuits, buoyancy aids and helmets and their use is mandatory.
All you need to bring is something to wear under the wetsuit – shorts, swimming costume, base layer, etc, optionally a pair of shorts to wear over the wetsuit, a towel, sturdy pair of lace up trainers/shoes and an open mind.
Where Does Gorge Walking Take Place?
Our Gorge Walking Activities are held in the stunning Waterfalls region of the Brecon Beacons National Park in South Wales. The sites are easily reached from Cardiff (approx. 45 mins), Swansea (approx. 25 mins), Porthcawl(approx. 30 mins) and Brecon Town itself (about 20 mins).
If required we can arrange exclusive return transport from any area in South Wales at reduced contract costs starting from £160 for a 16 seater private bus up to larger coaches, or simply make your own way there with our directions.
Gorge Walking can also be combined with other outdoor activities. Please contact us to discuss all the options available.
Gorge Walking Or Gorge Scrambling?
Gorge Walking and Gorge Scrambling
are essentially the same activity held in the same region of the Brecon Beacons Waterfalls, Gorge Scrambling however offers the chance of extending the activity to head into the parts of the waterfalls region not accessible on a normal event. Scrambling enters the deeper part of the Gorge with access to areas of stunning beauty flowing rivers, rapids, bigger jumps, plunge pools and waterfalls.
Gorge Scrambling is therefore a more committed and longer event requiring greater stamina and durability, taking part over 4 – 5 hours in total, where as Gorge Walking is usually 3 hours in total.
Depending on your needs or the groups requirements for the event Gorge Walking and Gorge Scrambling should suit all abilities, however if you are looking for bigger jumps, high commitment and an even greater physical and mental challenge take a look at the Canyoning and the Ultimate Mountain Challenge. There is always something for everyone in the falls.
