From the valley floor to the mountain top and everything in between; the biggest attraction of the Geopark is the landscape itself.

You can explore it for yourself with the help of a map or pick up a trail guide or leaflet.  Another option is to listen to and download a podcast or follow an audio-trail.

Take a look at our guide to exploring the Geopark. Lots of suggestions for enjoying an hour, a morning or a full day out and about in the area.

On the other hand you might prefer to join a guided walk – during the annual Fforest Fawr Geopark Festival for example (at the end of May/start of June each year) – or attend another event celebrating the natural heritage of Fforest Fawr UNESCO Global Geopark.  Start by taking a look at our What’s on pages.
