Join us for an adventure! Argoed Lwyd is ideally situated in the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park (Brecon Beacons), surrounded by dramatic landscape featuring caves, rivers, mountains and waterfalls to explore.

For over 25 years, we’ve had the delight of introducing people of all ages and abilities to these stunning locations to enjoy all that the National Park has to offer. We provide all specialist equipment for the activities such as ropes, helmets, torches. Plus, we have a range of walking boots, rucksacks or waterproofs available. So don't worry if you don't have these, we can lend you ours.

Caving adventure day

During the taster day you will explore the cave, take in it's features and learn how it was formed. You will complete some beginner routes to get comfortable with the passages before we take you deeper into the cave and explore more of its underground tunnels. This is a chance to see a part of the Brecon Beacons National Park that you may not have even known existed, and will be an experience you won't forget!
