Andy is the owner of Wales Outdoors and is an active guided walks leader as well as the workhorse behind the website and the online community.

In 1995 Andy Lamb opened the first mountain bike hire business in the Brecon Beacons National Park. It was immediately apparent that more was desired by clients of Wales Outdoors and so Andy developed a successful adventure activity company including the ownership and management of a bunkhouse and ‘indoor activity centre’ in Talgarth. However, the interesting work dried up with the cuts to funding for vulnerable groups and not wanting to be left with the delivery only of vicarious activity for stag and hen parties, and that in an industry that Andy increasingly saw as mismanaged and dangerous, Andy shifted focus. Dropping the adventure activities, Wales Outdoors went mad keen for walking, the original activity of choice for Andy but now possible to make into business due to the widespread adoption of social media platforms such as Facebook. Now Wales Outdoors is the most active and most popular guided walks and adventure travel provider in Wales!

Andy Lamb has been a Brecon Beacons National Park Part Time Warden and BBNP Volunteer and Guided Walks Co-ordinator, Chair of Brecon Beacons Tourism, a D of E and The Princes Trust Co-ordinator in Powys, in RCT and in Merthyr Tydfil and is currently the owner of Wales Outdoors. Andy was the catalyst for the Brecon Beacons Environmental Charter, a statement of intent for best practice regarding environmental sustainability in outdoor activity provision and the catalyst for the South Wales Outdoor Activity Providers Group, a membership organisation bringing authorities and providers together. Andy also managed the Outdoor Professionals Co-operartive, a membership by invite group that Andy developed that aimed for best practice in all aspects of business delivery. Andy is a Mountain Leader with nearly 30 years of guiding in Wales and further afield experience. You’ll have an informative, fun and memorable day 🙂
