Few landscapes are as impressive, varied and beautiful as those of Powys. The county features diverse and distinctive landscapes that support a great range of species and habitats, as well as being home to many sites of archaeological and scientific importance.
Powys covers a quarter of the landmass of Wales and two of Britain's most famous rivers, the Wye and the Severn, have their sources within the county. The south of the county lies within the Brecon Beacons National Park, whilst the north-western border abuts the Snowdonia National Park.
