We are an innovative, multiple award winning, as seen on TV adventure travel provider that works with small groups in the great outdoors. Here’s some background to our assertion that your adventure is our business!

In 1995 Andy Lamb opened the first mountain bike hire business in the Brecon Beacons National Park. Since then Andy’s business, Wales Outdoors, has grown and morphed and now Wales Outdoors is the most active and most popular guided walks and adventure travel provider in Wales.

Andy has been a volunteer co-ordinator, guided walks programme organiser and part time central area warden for the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority, chair of Brecon Beacons Tourism, a Duke of Edinburghs area co-ordinator, a Princes Trust social inclusion manager, the catalyst for the Brecon Beacons National Park Environment Charter and a key motivator for the inception of the outdoor activity peer group, SWOAPG. Wales Outdoors operate a safe, friendly and client orientated business that is actively pursuing innovative approaches to fun and educational outdoor provision.

Join us for day walks and weekends away in Wales as well as occasional challenge events and overseas walking tours and holidays in places such as Iceland and Tenerife…

Public Transit: We meet clients at the walking venues but encourage car sharing and can sometimes offer a lift. See event pages for meeting points and to request a seat 🙂
Awards: Despite or perhaps because we have some awards we believe that awards are meaningless as they are given by ‘made up’ organisations or by authorities that are firmly driven by nepotism.

Anyways – here are some of our awards!
