Bala is an historic market town in the Snowdonia National Park, Wales. It is surrounded by the rural region of Penllyn which has a strong and vibrant Welsh identity and culture. It is a wild area of high mountains, deep valleys, forests, fast flowing rivers, waterfalls, and many lakes and reservoirs. Penllyn’s main mountain ranges - Aran, Arenig and Berwyn – rival those of other parts of Snowdonia but are not as crowded, enabling you to enjoy a wild and serene experience. Hundreds of miles of footpaths and bridleways give access to remote and spectacular places. The area is alive with rivers, tumbling off the mountains to create great bodies of water. The Tryweryn and Dee flow either side of Bala, creating Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake) – Wales’ largest natural lake. Whether it’s sailing, canoeing, wild swimming or trout fishing you’ll find a place here. For road cyclists there are many epic tarmac rides to be had over high mountain passes, including Bwlch y Groes (1,800ft/545m). For mountain bikers there is challenging riding straight out of the door, but you are also within an easy drive of some of the world’s best mountain bike trail centres and downhill courses – all of which can be ridden year round. For anyone with a cross or gravel bike

Dolgellau is one of the most beautiful places in Snowdonia. It may not be one of the top towns people think of when they book their ‘staycation’ in North Wales, some just think all Snowdonia has to offer is Snowdon. Sometimes Southern Snowdonia gets a bit left out, but it’s just as stunning as the North. It’s not quite the ‘Riviera’ of Snowdonia, but obviously we are nearer the Equator! It’s a fabulous base to explore Snowdonia. If you want mountain biking you have everything including the flat Mawddach Trail which follows the old railway bed to the lovely seaside town of Barmouth. If hurtling down hills on two wheels is your thing, then Dolgellau is the nearest town to Coed y Brenin Mountain Bike Centre and further north you have the rugged slate tracks of Antur Stiniog in Blaenau Ffestiniog.
