What to do

Ride & Hike

  • Brecon Powys

Some of the most beautiful places in the Brecon Beacons National Park are often the most remote. Ride & Hike is a pick-up and drop-off service designed specifically to help you really explore the area whether you're walking or cycling.

A six-seater vehicle and six-bike trailer are available to take you to the starting point of your route. You don't need to worry about bus timetables, car parking charges or leaving your car in a remote place for hours on end. If you like, we can then arrange to pick you up at the end of the day as well.

The River Usk is now Wales's premier salmon river. It is also renowned for its wild brown trout, which average well over 1/2 lb.

It is also the home of the elusive otter and the Kingfisher. The river is re-stocked with brown trout.
