Mountain biking
One of the best UK centres, Llanwrtyd Wells is superb for mountain biking. Cycle across moorlands, up and down hillside, and through bogs, using farm and forest tracks, paths and open country. Bikes can be hired locally and there is a secure, well-equipped bike store (including 1st Aid equipment), available. Washing facilities, for bikes and people, are provided. Get fit and energised and ready for anything…

Walking
All walks start from Llanwrtyd Wells and whatever the distance - 10 miles and 25 miles being the most popular - are designed to include everything from minor roads to mountains depending on capabilities. Walkers are advised to carry the local Ordnance Survey Map and a compass at all times. Spot the Red Kites whilst drinking in the views. Blisters? What blisters? Get away from it all because mobile's don't work in mountains!

Horse-riding
The first trekking centre was established in Llanwrtyd Wells in the mid-1950s and continues to this day. Safe riding for all abilities through pine forests without sight or sound of traffic is relaxing and therapeutic. Spectacular scenery, a sure-footed friend, and fresh air - a great way to see the countryside.

Fishing
Fish in the River Irfon at Llanwrtyd Wells for salmon (who knows, you may catch trout, grayling and chub as well). Sit in solitude and enjoy the peace, listen to the sound of running water and watch the dappled light filtered through the trees onto the river surface... just before you land a 14 pounder!

.....................................................................................................................................................................

Golf
From a local pitch and putt course to 18-hole professional fairways, there are options for all. Llanwrtyd Wells is surrounded by golf courses - at Builth Wells, Llandovery and Brecon. Clubhouses are fully equipped. Tee off with confidence and swing your club for a 'birdie'.
