Leave the hustle-bustle of the city for a back-to-the-roots experience. Sing a youthful song, observe wild ducks, and paddle away on the water. Open canoeing in Brecon Beacons will put you a different environment altogether. The captivating sounds of nature, tree branches bending over the river, and the enchanting countryside ambience will make your open canoeing experience both relaxing and stimulating. Sometimes, the green forest cover will seem to overlap with the river giving the feeling of literally being in the lap of nature.
If you’re looking to learn open canoeing, our sessions are just for you.
You will be trained by our British Canoeing-certified instructors who will guide you in the basics of paddling as well as the safety measures.
Black Mountain is synonymous with a wide range of outdoor adventure activities such as paddleboarding, rock climbing, caving, canoeing, kayaking, biking, land carting, archery, abseiling and a lot more.
