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 changed and morphed and currently Andy is the most active and most popular guided walks provider in Wales. He still offers a few adventure activities for good measure of course.
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.

Andy Lamb is the main man and he delivers most of the walks. However, he encourages others to become leaders for the meetup group Adventure Activity South Wales and here is the team… Can you see your face joining them? If you have what it takes then do get in touch 🙂
Have been out on a couple of guided walks and have booked as many more as I can fit into busy weekends. Thoroughly... enjoyed myself as someone new to walking in a group. My friends and family aren't that interested so it's great to join a friendly group with knowledgeable and experienced guides. For those who may worried about not being able to keep up, like I was, choose one of the events listed as 'doable by most' no need to be concerned. The Amazing 8 Waterfalls was spectacular after heavy rain.read more

I went on the amazing 8 waterfalls walk in June. Lovely group of people and Andy was friendly and knowledgeable.... Although I live fairly locally and had walked the first part a few times, it was really interesting to see places I hadn't been before. A few places were narrow and steep but everyone managed it, even if one or two of us went downhill on our bums (intentionally) in a couple of places. I would thoroughly recommend joining one of these walks if you want to walk with like-minded people. I hope to do one of the Pen y fan walks in the future.read more
I attended the waterfalls guided walk on a rainy day in October with my friends from my local running club. From the... minute we finished the briefing it was clear that Andy and his colleagues knew the area inside out and were enthusiastic about being out in the forests and Welsh country side. Andy was knowledgeable about the area but also about the environment in general and the importance of rewilding. The waterfalls were stunning and the route a manageable challenge. The day exceeded my expectations and will be returning with my daughters in the spring or summer.read more
