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.

Rhigos Mountain

.

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

The tour descends down the other side of the Mountain and travels along the southern edge of the park towards Merthyr Tydfil, before heading into the park itself. You will travel up through the woods on to the top of the mountain. Some of the roads on this part of the tour can get quite narrow, and secluded. You may be forgiven for thinking your driver has gotten lost, but rest assured, they know where they are going.

Eventually you will arrive on the moors on top of the moutains, and you may be forgiven for thinking you are in the middle of nowhere as you look out across the desolte landscape with the twin peaks of Pen-y-Fan (the highest mountain in South Wales) and Corn-Du in the distance.

The next viewing stop will be near the base of Pen-y-Fan itself, where you will have spectacular, seemingly endless views down through the valley, before carrying on over and the mountains and through the valleys. You will be taken through a range of of lanscapes, from rolling hills, forests, open moorland and dramatic mountains. The one thing almost all of the landscapes have in common though, is isolation and solitude. On large sections of the tour, you may not come across another vehicle or person for a while.
The tour will take a winding route through the National park, before arriving in the town of Brecon on the northern edge of the Park in the early afternoon.
.

Brecon Canal Basin

.

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.
