A patchwork of peaks and valleys
Whether you’re looking for an action-packed adventure or peace and tranquillity, Brecon Beacons is an enchanting place to visit.
The Brecon Beacons is a rugged area of South Wales, dominated by misty mountains and deep, wooded valleys, and scattered with attractive market towns and villages. For decades, this unspoilt region has been a magnet for walkers, many of whom come to conquer Pen Y Fan, South Wales’ highest peak, or one of hundreds of hill walks, which offer spectacular views across the Welsh countryside.
One the biggest draws to the Brecon Beacons is the fact is one of few places in the world to have been granted Dark Sky Reserve status. This means the outstanding quality of the night sky, due to careful preservation and reduced light pollution.
