Welcome to Touching the Outdoors. We aim to provide an outdoor experience for those of you who have always wanted to give it a try but for one reason or another have never got round to it. Age is no barrier to participation and we welcome customers from the over 45 age group.

Situated in the heart of mid Wales, the small market town of Rhayader is an ideal base, offering good accommodation and conveniently placed at the confluence of the Elan and Wye Valleys.

All our activities are specifically tailored to your level of expertise and fitness and we welcome the complete novice who is just looking for a first or even second experience by open canoe, by bike or on foot. We provide first class instruction to enable you to take full advantage of each activity, consequently our group sizes are limited to a maximum of six on each activity. Experience tells us that working on a personal level with small groups gives everyone the opportunity for maximum participation and enjoyment.

We are happy to provide a single activity experience or a custom designed multi activity programme over two days; for example, our activity week-ends are designed to provide a mixed experience of open canoeing on the River Wye, biking around the Elan Valley and/or walking over the wild openess that characterises the mid Wales heartland. We can provide individual programmes for groups on request and we are happy to cater for ladies only activity breaks. Just get in touch and tell us what you want.

Whatever your interest, join us for an outdoor experience in the rural cradle of what still is the middle ground of the ancient nation of Wales
