Mountain & Water

Canoeing and Kayaking. River, Lake Canal, and Sea.

What would be your ideal outdoor adventure?

Paddle a canoe gently along a meandering river; explore underground caverns; climb crags and cliffs; abseil down a waterfall; shoot the rapids in a kayak; watch wildlife or study Wales' rich heritage on foot, by bike kayak or canoe...

You can do all this and more with Mountain and Water!

We welcome individuals, families, and groups of all kinds. Whatever your age or ability, our flexible approach will provide a memorable sustainable adventure while enjoying Wales' amazing countryside and coast.

Paddlesports - Canoeing and Kayaking.

Do you want to cruise lazily on placid water watching wildlife and admiring the scenery; experience the thrills and spills of white-water; journey on the sea.? Whatever you want from paddlesport, we can give you a firm foundation of skill and experience.

Mountain & Water offers taster sessions and day trips in the Brecon Beacons and Wye Valley, and a programme of courses and holiday tours by canoe and kayak throughout Wales, for beginners and improvers. We also run courses leading to BCU 'Star' tests, basic rescue and BCU/UKCC coaching qualifications.

Climbing and Abseiling

Climbing and Abseiling are available as one-day tasters or as part of a multi-activity package, we aim to introduce participants to this exciting sport in a controlled yet stimulating environment. Using the security of a top-rope system, beginners can quickly get to grips with moving around on the rock face and trying out various methods of safeguarding their climbing partners.

Abseiling is introduced as a fun activity in itself as well as being an important part of the wider climbing skills. Indoor venues may be available in bad weather.

Walking, Orienteering and Wayfaring

Let us plan a route to take in whatever interests you most. Mountain summits, woodlands and waterfalls, geology, industrial heritage, plantlife...

Single days or multi-day walks with overnight camp or B&B.

Our 'Active History' programme may also be of interest.


An introduction to map and compass skills and a great way to learn the rudiments of navigation. It is an ideal introduction to pastimes such as hill-walking. And it's FUN!


A more competitive experience. Working in pairs or small teams and with an atmosphere of friendly competition you will plan your route and collect the control points to complete the circuit in the best possible time.

Night Hike

The countryside takes on a different atmosphere after dark, bringing all your senses into focus. The Brecon Beacons are reknowned for the quality of the night sky, making this an ideal place for night walking. Depending on the weather, and the phase of the moon, we may enjoy star gazing, moon watching, bat watching, night navigation and orienteering....

Come with an open mind and enjoy!


What better place to try archery than Wales, where the long-bow is thought to have originated!.

Archery can be taken as a fun activity or 'taster' session; learning the basic skills in a half-day session.

Archery is also available as part of one of our heritage-themed-activity days combined with other ancient arts such as coracle-building, in the context of their historical setting.
