Ranger tours of the estate can be booked in advance which gives visitors a fascinating insight into the history of the estate and the building of the Victorian dams. One of our knowledgeable rangers will accompany you on your coach around the estate. A visit to the cafe and visitor centre can be added to your day either before or after your tour. We can also create a full day itinerary with the addition of bike hire or visitors can enjoy one of the many walking trails in the valley.

You can combine an estate tour with a dam tour where you'll venture inside Pen y Garreg Dam. This dam has an internal gallery landing which gives a rare opportunity for groups to see up close the amazing feat of engineering and work that was involved in the building of these dams.

We are pleased to offer the coach driver and tour guide a free meal and hot drink when they visit
us on a tour.

Prices for Ranger tours are per coach, not per person. There is no minimum or maximum number per coach.
