Just on the edge of The Snowdonia National Park and south of Lake Bala, Lake Vyrnwy is set amidst the remote and beautiful Berwyn Mountains. With spectacular waterfalls, and unspoilt open countryside, a visit to Lake Vyrnwy is a wonderful day out for all the family.
The RSPB visitors' centre is the ideal places to start your visit. Join a trail through the woodland and birds are soon all around you.
You should be able to see and hear pied flycatchers and redstarts, while dippers nest by the lake and rocky streams, great crested grebes and goosanders bob on the water, and above you ravens, buzzards and perhaps a peregrine soar in the skies.
Hire a bike and cycle around the lake or hire a boat or go windsurfing. Don't miss the fascinating sculpture trail.
