What we're about

Hi and welcome. Welsh Mountain Walks is for people who want to get out and about walking in Wales and beyond. You will meet friendly people, whilst having fun and safe experiences.
We offer professionally led walks, events and courses to all levels of abilities. These are led by Ben, a professional, fully insured and very experienced Summer and Winter Mountain Leader and a Brecon Beacons Ambassador. Ben has 25 years experience leading groups in the mountain and lives in the Brecon Beacons.
All of the walks events and courses are for smaller group sizes. As a professional leader and active member of the MLTA, which is the Mountain Leader Training Association, I adhere to safe ratios with regard to leader to clients. You can be assured you will never be walking in a group larger than it is safe for a professional, insured leader to manage. Due to Covid 19, all participants are asked to carry hand gel and a mask.
If you are new to hillwalking and feel a bit nervous about attending a Meet Up please don't. I am a friendly guy who will do my best to make you feel welcome and confident out on the hills. If you have any questions just ask. 
The walks have different grades which are Gentle, Moderate and Challenging. Gentle walks are up to 8km in length and a maximum of 400m ascent/descent. Moderate walks are 8- 13 kms in length and up to 700m in ascent/descent and Challenging walks are over 13kms in length and/or over 700m ascent and descent.
I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to Welsh Mountain Walks. Please read the group reviews to get an idea of what members are saying about WMW.
All the best
