Gorge Walking with Black Mountain Adventure

Are you up for the challenge?

Gorge Walking Wales is owned & operated by Black Mountain Adventure who have over 30 years of experience & knowledge in the outdoor industry. They are also one of the very first commercial operators who started offering professional gorge walking here in South Wales back in the early 1990s.

Our gorge walking adventure days are simply legendary and offer an exciting, challenging experience for everyone aged 8 – 80. Wales is one of the top destinations in the whole of the UK for gorge walking, with the Brecon Beacons National Park offering some of the best mountains and rivers for us to play in and explore together.

What is gorge walking all about?

If traversing along rock walls, jumping across boulders, scrambling waterfalls, exploring dark holes in the ground (only for the intrepid), crawling behind waterfalls & jumping in to plunge pools sounds like it’ll get your blood pumping, then this is the ultimate adventure activity for you! Under the supervision of your experienced instructor and equipped with a wetsuit, buoyancy aid & helmet, you will be guided up river where the fun will begin.

Suitable for both kids and adults, this gorge walking adventure day will push you outside of your comfort zone, have you reaching goals you never thought possible and give you an adventure experience to remember for a lifetime. And all within a safe and controlled environment led by our experienced gorge waling team of guides.

Need an extra adrenaline shot? Then you can opt for our Full Day Gorge Adventure which is jam packed full of jumps, challenges & of course great fun, but the day wouldn’t be complete without taking the final plunge at ‘Loonies Leap’ – the 18ft Waterfall Jump!

Yes, it’s BIGGER, BETTER & WETTER – do you have what it takes?
