In 1995 Andy Lamb opened the first mountain bike hire business in the Brecon Beacons National Park. Since then Andyโ€™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.

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 ๐Ÿ™‚
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.


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 ๐Ÿ™‚
