"The stunning Lake Vyrnwy area is my idea of heaven. Walking cycling, touring, bacon butties & cream teas- it has all this & more! I travel the world, but Lake Vyrnwy is up there, and pretty hard to beat." Sian Lloyd
"Lake Vyrnwy is one of Wales' hidden gems. With stunning views, a wonderful array of walks to suit all abilities and some fantastic wildlife, it's a great place to visit throughout the year." Iolo Williams
Rhiwargor Waterfall Trail and Reservoir View Trail closure
From Monday 9th January 2023, the Rhiwargor Waterfall Trail (Green) and a section of the Reservoir View Trail (Red) will be closed. Please looks at the news page for more detail and a map.
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. A short drive from the Shropshire border (The Welsh Marches) it is an easy day out from Birmingham, Liverpool, Chester or Manchester and is the perfect base for exploring Snowdonia, The Welsh Marches and the coast from Harlech to Aberystwyth.
Come and experience the walks and trails of the 24,000 acre RSPB Reserve, with viewpoints and hides around the Lake to observe the amazing variety of birds and scenery. Walk through the visionary Sculpture Park below the Dam. There are plenty of activities too, including boating, adventure activities, cycle hire, walking and horse trails. There are local craft shops to visit and excellent places to eat. Stay a while in the wide range of high quality accommodation, some offering brand new spa facilities. The very best rough shooting, fly fishing and clay pigeon shooting are available too. There is plenty of free car parking. The spectacular scenery is free too!'
PLEASE NOTE: The road from the dam down to the main car park will be closed during the day from Monday 14th March 2022 for resurfacing.
