Explore the Beauty & Wilderness of Bannau Brycheiniog
Bannau Brychiniog (Brecon Beacons) National Park is the 2nd largest National Park in Wales. Stretching from Abergavenny in the East, to Llandeilo in the West. From Merthyr Tydfil and the top of the South Wales Valleys to the town of Brecon, it is nearly 520 square miles of wilderness, mountains and stunning countryside.
Your driver for your tour of the National Park will meet you at your hotel at around 9:30am. Leaving Cardiff you will be driven north through the Rhondda Valley. This part of Wales has a rich coal mining history, and you will be driven up through the former coal mining communities in the valley,and up over the top of The Rhigos Mountain at the top of the valley.
The tour stops briefly on top of the Mountain overlooking Tower Coillery. The last coillery to close in South Wales, and now how to Zip World. The top of The Rhigos also provides stunning views across the Brecon Beacons National Park themselves
Your driver will park up near the Brecon Canal Basin and you will have some time to independantly explore the canal basin and ancient market town, full of old buildings, and independant shops, and places to eat, should you wish to get some lunch whilst in Brecon.
After around an hour a half, you will meet back up with your driver, who will take you back through the National Park and head back to Cardiff. Returning back at your hotel at around 4:00pm.
