Rhayader is situated on the edge of the Cambrian Mountains which offer endless possibilities for walkers who wish to explore the rugged Welsh scenery.

For those with perhaps less energy for exploring the wilderness, there are numerous shorter riverside walks throughout the town.

Cycling and Mountain Biking:

Mid Wales is a cyclist's paradise, with mile upon mile of quiet country roads and lanes to explore. Rhayader is on one of the most the scenic sections of the Welsh National Cycle Route 8 (Lôn Las Cymru). This section has many miles of safe off road cycleways for the whole family to enjoy. The National Cycle route runs the entire length of Wales, from Chepstow in the south to Holyhead on the isle of Anglesey in the north. Cycles can be hired locally.

For mountain bikers, the countless bridlepaths in the area offer endless possibilities for off-road riding.

As part of the recent Millennium celebrations, a purpose-made cycle path was constructed which leads from Rhayader to the very top of the Elan Valley.

Bird Watching:

With so many birds in their natural habitat, Mid Wales is a bird-watchers' dream come true. You can visit the wetlands and see more than 80 different species or explore the hills and mountains to see the birds of prey in all their majestic glory.

The highlight of your tour must surely be to view the Red Kites soaring effortlessly in the skies above - you can even see the Kites being fed at the local Gigrin Farm where purpose-built hides have been constructed from which to view these truly beautiful creatures at close quarters.


With a wealth of rivers, streams and lakes in the area, fishermen are able to pursue their sport in and around the wonderful surroundings of Rhayader. In fact, the famous River Wye, well known amongst angling folk, flows directly through the centre of the town. Find us on the Rhayader and Elan Valley Angling Association's website where you can find out about day tickets on both the River Wye and Tributaries and The Elan Reservoirs.
