If you are looking for the best gorge walking that Wales and the Brecon Beacons has to offer, then Gorge Walking Wales has all the adventure and excitement that you can manage. We have gorges to suit all ages and abilities, so whether you want just a fun filled exciting day or something a bit more extreme then Gorge Walking Wales is the place to find the gorge walk to suit you.
If you don't know what gorge walking is all about, then in a nutshell it is one of the best outdoor activities that you can do. Basically it involves your party scrambling up or down a river or stream. Now this might seem quite tame but it is the type of river that makes the difference. As the name might suggest, all the rivers we operate in run through steep gorges which produces various natural challenges for your team to overcome. These challenges can range from abseiling down 30 foot waterfalls, climbing up 15 to 20 foot waterfalls, jumping 26 foot into plunge pools and many other fun and thrilling activities along the way.
Even though gorge walking in Wales is a hugely exciting outdoor activity we aim to make it as safe as possible. All our instructors are highly experienced climbing instructors as well as experts in gorge walking. We check out all the rivers that we operate on and we know all the Welsh and Brecon Beacon gorge walks inside out.
Our ultimate aim is to give you and your party the most fun, the most excitement and the best adventure that you have ever had. And don't feel intimidated by the photos, we always start gently and teach you all the techniques that you need along the way. By the time you get to the larger climbs and abseils you will be more than ready for them and if you feel that you don't want to do a certain challenge then there are always other options.
During the gorge walking we will be taking photos and videos of you and your party at all the best spots. We will then send a cd/dvd with all the pictures to your group leader so that you can relive those moments again and again. If you want to bring your own cameras or camcorders we will use them when we can but it will be at your own risk.
Don't forget, you can go gorge walking at any time of the year as we supply full wet suits and a complete set of waterproof clothing as well as all the necessary safety equipment. So if you want to experience the best gorge walking that Wales and the Brecon Beacons can offer then contact me for a quote for you and your party. I offer discounts for large groups and can arrange transport and accommodation if you have not already got it organised. Finally we are AALA registered so can run sessions for groups of any age, so if you are a scout troop, a youth group, school or college we can run an exciting safe session just for you.

Michael, what a fantastic adventure. Absolutely brilliant fun for the Dads and the sons, something that will live in our memories for life. Thanks for making the abseiling and gorge walking so much fun and so exhilarating but also good to know we were in safe hands the whole time. Many thanks from the Dads and Lads Wild Camping Group
David - Surrey
What a fantastic day!I think it's fair to say everyone in the group got a little apprehensive at some point during the abseiling or gorge walking!However, with Michael's calm coaching approach everyone completed all that was asked of them with a huge sense of accomplishment. We'll be back!

Group of four lads - March 2016
Just wanted to say thank you very much for a spectacular day, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and want to go gorge walking again immediately!What topped it off was the fact that you're quite obviously very knowledgeable and passionate about the
activities and you take a true interest in teaching others your knowledge and skills - it really was a fantastic experience that has left me hungry for more!
My father is 60 this year and has always wanted to go gorge walking so am looking at booking something for later this year. What's your availability like?

Paul's Stag Party - Feb 2016
Thanks for such a great day for my brothers stag weekend in Wales. The gorge walking was everything I had hoped for, and I thought you and Matt were both great guides and great sports towards our whole group. All the boys were buzzing about it for the rest of the day. I may well be in touch about a coasteering day or another gorge walking day (perhaps the one with abseiling). Also, thanks for capturing some great photos, and accommodating our varying group size. Stag weekends are difficult to organise, and I appreciated the flexibility in group size that you accounted for. I'll be sure to recommend gorge walking and yourself to others.

Thank you for a fantastic day's gorge walking in Wales and making the start of Suzie's hen weekend so much fun, it will be the subject of many a conversation for weeks to come! The rest of the weekend seemed tame in comparison, even the girls night out!
All the best,

Chris and Stag Group - May 2017
What a fantastic afternoon. We were a small group of mixed ability stag-weekenders and couldn't have asked for more. Michael, our leader, was supportive of the group throughout, setting the pace to match our ability. Starting out we learnt the relevant
techniques we'd need later in the day, with a focus on safety and teamwork. We then took it in turns to lead our way up the gorge with various targets set as we went along (like staying dry!). Highlights for me were the headfirst shimmy down a very narrow 45
degree angle tunnel, and a couple of heart stopping leaps from waterfalls. Provided with access to photos of the event on-line afterwards. Whole event was safe, professional, and most importantly a great deal of fun!

We had an absolutely fantastic time gorge walking on Saturday it was good to meet you, Miv and Steve and thank you for your help and patience! I have already had 4 emails from the other girls saying how good the activities were and how much they enjoyed them.
