Pen y Fan and the Brecon Beacons National Park

Carved out by the slow brush strokes of glaciers millions of years ago, Pen y Fan (Welsh for “head here”) is one of the most popular hiking destinations in Wales. Situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park, hundreds of hiking trails criss-cross the area meaning the Horseshoe Ridge Walk is just a small section of the Brecon Beacons out there to explore.

Giant horseshoes make up the contours of this landscape, creating stunning views, beautiful curves and challenging hills to climb.
