What you'll do

Let me pick you up and take you to this place of immense beauty. This guided 5.5 mile walk/hike along rocky paths takes you along riverside scenery, with steep sided wooded valleys and four breath-taking waterfalls. In a National Park renowned for its sweeping, barren, mountain scenery, high peak lovers are in danger of missing out on this hidden gem. This pocket of dramatic limestone scenery where 4 stunning waterfalls are within a relatively short walk of each other is a truly unique location like no other in the UK. The highlight of the area is 'Sgwd yr Eira' waterfall, where you'll venture right behind the gushing torrent of water, a truly unique and memorable experience that you won't forget.

Hello and welcome to South Wales! I run a small walking tour business called Walk South Wales and would love to show you around. I have been exploring this beautiful region, with its rivers, mountains, castles and stunning coast for over 20 years. I am passionate about its history, wildlife and people and about sharing my knowledge with visitors to this diverse and beautiful part of Wales.

Where you'll be

This walk in the Brecon Beacons National Park takes you along steep sided wooded valleys where you will experience 4 stunning waterfalls. The walk begins near the village of Ystradfellte where you’ll leave the car and walk through beautiful Welsh countryside to the waterfalls. Each waterfall is different and has its own unique character. The final waterfall is the best in the country and enables you to walk behind the wall of gushing water.

A wonderful place to visit, some incredible waterfalls, and a variety of birdlife to see. Worth remembering to bring a DSLR camera and GoPro. Difficult to reach unless you have a car so it was very convenient to be picked up and have company who was both experienced and informative. Showed great knowledge of wildlife and history

Andy is very well-informed and he enthusiastically shared local history throughout the tour. He was patient, supportive and had a good sense of humour. The snacks and water are a thoughtful touch and much appreciated. It was an all round wonderful experience!

This high-level hike was a 2 1/2 hour jaunt through Brecon Beacons National Park. Without our guide, Andy, we would have for sure gotten lost in this beautiful moss-covered forest. We even saw some Extreme kayakers dare it all and fall over the falls! This hike is serious, prepare yourself with proper hiking footwear, hydration, and be ready to hike both uphill and downhill. You’ll be rewarded with breathtaking views, numerous photo opportunities, and a look into some of the UK’s natural beauty.
