Bala

The market town of Bala has an enviable position at the northern end of Llyn Tegid, or Bala Lake. Set in the Snowdonia National Park it provides a year round holiday destination, with plenty of outdoor activities close at hand.

Centred on the wide High Street, it has a good choice of interesting shops, cafes, restaurants and inns. The town trail takes around two hours to complete and will give visitors a taste of the history and culture of this town that was founded in about 1310.

The area around Bala offers lots of outdoor activities from the doorstep, including walking, climbing and mountain biking. In addition the lake and rivers provide a range of water sports.

The river that runs through Bala, the Afon Tryweryn, is known for white water kayaking and the National Whitewater Centre is based in the town. Here, visitors over the age of twelve can book to join activities such as rafting and canyoning.

Keen fishermen will find that fish are plentiful in Lake Bala, which is the largest natural lake in Wales. Wildlife enthusiasts will be thrilled at the range of birds here, from divers and cormorants on the lake to wagtails and dippers on the rivers. Otters have also been reintroduced to the rivers, and visitors may be lucky enough to spot the birds of prey; such as red kite, merlin or even the increasingly rare hen harrier, over the upland areas, which also support larks, curlew and red and black grouse.

The Bala Lake Railway is a narrow-gauge line running through 4.5 miles of lake and mountain scenery from Llanuwchllyn to Bala, and there are many trails for visitors to follow. These include a paper trail and treasure hunt for children as well as scenic walks and heritage trails. There are even canoe trails on Lake Bala.
