If you fancy a leisurely paddle along a river or across a lake there are plenty of places you can go canoeing in North Wales.

And with about 250 lakes or Llyns as they’re known in Welsh in Snowdonia National Park alone you’re spoilt for choice!

Llyn Padarn is our nearest lake and although small compared to others as it’s only 240 acres this glacially formed lake is stunningly beautiful as it nestles in the heart of Snowdonia and is part of Padarn Country Park and is a popular spot for canoeing.

On a much larger scale is Bala Lake or Llyn Tegid, which is the largest natural lake in Wales, not just North Wales at 1,196 acres. The lake lies in a glacial valley in Snowdonia National Park so its beauty really is a sight to behold, and it offers visitors plenty to see and do including canoeing.

You can also go paddling in either a canoe or a kayak at the National White Water Centre just outside Bala.

The National White Water Centre is just under 40 miles (approx 1 hour drive) from the hotel.
