Elan Valley

There are many reasons to visit Elan Valley. Part of the rugged Cambrian Mountains, Elan is a beautiful and unspoilt area made even more compelling by the dams and reservoirs which together create a wonderful, living landscape. The views are stunning and you are never far away from points of interest.

Elan is a haven for wildlife, one of the most important sites in Wales and there is always something to warm the heart throughout the year. You will marvel at the engineering enterprise of the Victorians in building the dams and the railways which served their construction.

There is so much to discover and a team of Rangers are always on hand to tell you more

You can stroll, picnic or hike; cycle or mountain bike; bird watch, fish or safari!
