Brecon Beacons Escape 31 Mar - 2 Apr

This weekend is now sold out.  If you would like to be added to the waiting list enter your email below and we will alert you if there are any cancellations

Join us for a spring weekend of guided hiking amongst the most spectacular scenery in southern Wales.  We’ll stand on the highest mountain in southern Britain with the rolling hills and fields of mid-Wales spreading out below us.

The Brecon Beacons National Park is one of the UK’s best hiking areas.  We’ll be staying in the bwlch or “gap” between the Black Mountains and the Central Beacons Mountain range where the local geology produces a spectacular landscape of steep red escarpments on the north faces of the mountains.  Nearby is the Brecon Beacons horseshoe a long ridge of 6 summits with the 886m high Pen-y-Fan at its head and a lake nestled in its heart.

We’ll head out on both days for guided walks to explore the area on foot through a landscape of imposing mountains, ancient hill forts and hidden lakes with views of South Wales’ rolling farmland spreading out below us.  The Brecon Beacons is also an International Dark Sky Reserve and so sunny days turn into equally spectacular nights and on a clear night you can see the Milky Way stretching overhead.  If the weather is good then we’ll make the most of our location and go for an optional night-hike for some star-gazing.  

The Brecon Beacons are also good for road or mountain biking if you want to bring a bike (this would be unguided).

We'll return in the evening to our own cosy accommodation with a wood-burning stove.  If you've never come on an EC Adventure before, they're informal, friendly and great fun. We generally have singles, couples and small sets of friends coming along, from complete beginners to adventure professionals - what we all share is a love for adventure.  Ages tend to range between mid 20s and mid 40s but anyone over 18 years old and young at heart is welcome.
