The North Wales region
Snowdonia is the soul of Wales. One of the most ancient and hauntingly beautiful areas in Europe. Called Eryri (the place of eagles) in Welsh, Snowdonia welcomes visitors to a breathtaking natural environment, with Snowdonia National Park at its heart and so much more. People have lived, worked and thrived in this unique Celtic principality for more than 5000 years. Their legacy is a land which will fascinate the visitor with its rich opportunities for adventure, activity and discovery and its unique and ancient language, Cymraeg. Come visit Snowdonia and explore the contrasts from gentle rolling hills of Betws Y Coed to vast and awesome majesty of Llanberis and Snowdon itself. Since Prince Charles condemned the Snowdon Visitors Centre as the "highest slum in Britain", work is now complete on the stunning new Hafod Eryri Centre at the summit.
Bala is the perfect place to come and explore this magical corner of the world. It has a wealth of outdoor activities literally on its doorstep from rock climbing to mountain biking and more!
Multi Activity days, single activity taster sessions or small corporate team-building packages are available with expert instruction and tuition and all equipment included.
From Bala visit:
*The National White Water Centre in Frongoch 5 minutes.
* Coed Y Brenin Mountain Biking Trails 20 minutes
But if all this sounds all a bit like too much hard work for you why not take a gentle stroll and take in some of the most breathtaking scenery in the United Kingdom.
