Parkwood Outdoors Dolygaer

Discover Parkwood Outdoors Dolygaer

A multi-activity centre alongside the spectacular Ponsticill Reservoir in the Brecon Beacons National Park

New Camping. New Adventures. New Look. 

Parkwood Outdoors Dolygaer is an activity centre based in the south of the Brecon Beacons, just a 15 minute drive from Merthyr Tydfil centre. The centre offers a fantastic range of activities delivered by specialist instructors.  Activities include sailing, gorge adventure, canoeing, kayaking, raft building, rock climbing, caving, mountain biking, orienteering and more with options available for all ages and abilities.

New for 2021 - Zip Wire - It's over a 100m long and starts 20m up a tree. Just climbing the tree is an exhilarating achievement, but then you have to step off! After taking that leap of faith, you will feel the wind rush your face as you fly over the Nant Callan valley to the other side.  A gentle landing on the opposite valley slope will bring you back to the world of gravity.

The scenic surroundings really need to be seen first-hand to be believed with stunning views over the lake, river and rolling hills which can be viewed from the site. Fully qualified and welcoming staff will make your visit here enjoyable, safe and memorable.
