Welsh Cultural Hike in the Brecon Beacons

About this event

A Welsh Cultural hike is focused on bringing the myths, stories and legends of the Brecon Beacons alive. As we journey through the landscape your guide will tell the myths, stories and legends that form the basis of Welsh Culture.

This full day hike we will explore the less visited Black Mountain Range and use this area as a platform to tell the stories of the Brecon Beacons.

The hike is approximately 15 km (9 miles) long with an ascent of 740 m (2,430 feet). We will climb Fan Hir, Fan Brycheiniog and Fan Foel which will give us excellent views of Llyn Fan Fawr and Fach.

We will return to our cars by following the historic Beacons Way.

During the hike we will learn about:

  • Each of the lakes in the Brecon Beacons and the stories associated with each one handed down over generations.
  • Where King Arthur is sleeping with his knights, waiting for the call to defend Britain once again.
  • The stories associated with various standing stones found in the park.
  • Whipping trees and witches pools, were they used or just a threat to control the locals?
  • The castles and towers in the area and how they were used to gain control or defend Wales.
  • The Chartist movement in Wales and how a cave was used to store weapons for the march on Newport.
  • Flora and fauna in the area
  • How the Brecon Beacons were formed over 350 million years ago.
