Activities in the Brecon Beacons

Updated: Apr 12

As part of our Green Traveller's Guide to the Brecon Beacons, Paul Bloomfield picks out a selection of walking, cycling and other car-free breaks in this glorious National Park in south Wales.

As you might expect from a National Park boasting some 519 square miles of wide open spaces, the Brecon Beacons is an ideal place to come if you're looking for adventure.

Regardless of whether you're a walker, a cyclist, a horse rider or even just someone looking to have a car-free break, there's going to be something to keep you active. Walkers and cyclists can either relax and enjoy natural spaces like the beautiful Usk River, or head up into the mountains for some much tougher trails and some truly unforgettable geocaching experiences.
