6 of us did a 4 night, 5 day trip at the end of June 2012 to celebrate a couple of 30th Birthday's with Black Mountain and we absolutely loved it! Originally we had booked to canoe about 60/70 miles down the river Wye but when we got there we were not allowed on the river as the water levels were too high and it was too dangerous. This meant that we had to go on the Brecon canal which we were a bit dissapointed with but it was no fault of Black Mountain Activities and we were determined to make the most of our trip. Although it perhaps wasn't as good as the river trip may have been (which we will be trying again one day when the weather sorts itself out) we had a great time and i would strongly recommend arranging a similar trip if you get the chance.
Black Mountain were very helpful and even drove 45 minutes to one of our campsites to swap our canoes for mountain bikes when we fancied a change. They even stored half of our belongings for a couple of days as we had to cut back to the essentials. The two campsites that we stayed at were organised by Black Mountain as our previous bookings were useless because they were on the river. Both campsites were well run and ideal for our trip although you will need to consider distances from the river as lugging canoes and barrels about can be hard work!
We will hopefully be coming back to Wales to do the river trip but the alternative that Black Mountain arranged on our behalf was a good substitute, great fun and decent value for money.
Thank you to Annette and all at Black Mountain for making our trip such a good one.
