Nature Reserves in Brecon
Brecon Beacons National Park
Located in the South of Wales, this park offers the nature lover a pristine hillside setting that is nothing short of truly fabulous. Inside this magnificent, wildlife protected area are a few stunning Welsh mountains, the highest being the Pen y Fan (886 meters, and the highest point of the entire nature reserve), the Corn Du (873 m), the Cribyn (795 m) and the y Fan Big (719 m). There are many activities available to the adventurous tourist who wants to get to know this wilderness: hiking, mountain biking, horse riding, climbing, and along the rivers that irrigate the landscape, you can even try windsurfing or canoeing. Immersing yourself in this enchanting emerald landscape is a real remedy for the human spirit, where you can get in touch with Mother Nature. For the best experience, I recommend that you spend a few days camping in the park.
Rivers in Brecon
Channel of Monmouthshire and Brecon
This is a 56 km long canal that connects the town of Brecon, to the north of Cardiff (Wales) to Newport near the Bristol Channel. The Canal runs through the natural Brecon environment, offering a beautiful ride along the water, its banks lined with trees and wildflowers. You can see mallards, kingfishers, herons, carp ... this is very popular with tourists, particularly in summer. Several companies offer trips down the canal, including Cambrian Cruisers, Beacon Park Boats, Red Line Boats .... and it is also possible to rent boats for individual excursions.
