Snowdonia is a wide, beautiful landscape filled with natural wonders and attractions to keep you busy throughout your holidays. One of the greatest attractions of Snowdonia that should not be missed is Bala Lake.
It is known as Lake Tegid by its Welsh name and was once the largest natural lake in all of Wales until its level was artificially raised by Thomas Telford. This was done to help the flow of the Ellesmere Port canal but the lake still remains a breathtaking landmark.
The lake is an impressive four miles long and 1 mile wide. It is home to many forms of marine wildlife including eels and forms of rare fish, as well as sustaining other forms of wildlife from the Snowdonia region such as the water birds and larger land mammals who rely on the lake. It sits near forests, rolling countryside and is nestled among the Snowdonia range giving this lake some of the most stunning surroundings imaginable. The town of Bala lies to its north.
Naturally, it is the ideal place for watersports and there are several outdoor activity centres nearby offering opportunities for sailing, canoeing, kayaking, wild swimming and more. The lake draws in those who love adrenaline fuelled adventure and those who love the peace and beauty of nature. It is one of those attractions that everyone visiting Snowdonia should experience. There is also a railway around Bala Lake where you can a nine mile journey to see all the best parts of the area and Snowdonia National Park.
