Canoeing and Kayaking on : Bala Lake / Llyn Tegid

Llyn Tegid, also known as Bala Lake, is a large lake in North Wales which is well known for canoeing, kayaking and other watersports.

There are numerous places to launch canoes or kayaks around the lake, though a launch fee applies which can most easily be paid at the Bala foreshore.

Being a large lake, canoeists should be cautious and aware of potentially difficult conditions appearing quickly if the wind gets up.

The famous River Dee, one of the UK's most popular whitewater rivers, flows out of Llyn Tegid.

Nearby, the River Tryweryn is well known as one of the best whitewater canoeing venues in Britain, and is home to the National White Water Centre.

The town of Bala is situated at the North Eastern end of the lake, and has all the facilities you would expect of an important regional centre. There are also several campsites around the lake, and a narrow gauge railway runs along one sure.
