Walking around the lake is peaceful and scenic, especially looking at the changing colours of the leaves. You do require good strong walking shoes to walk around here. There is a train that takes you at the side of the lake and through the forest.

It is a lovely setting, great scenery and lots of different way to enjoy it. Take a steam train ride around it, walk, paddle a canoe, row a boat or just sit and enjoy the many views! It looks very different as the lighting changes...More

This is a lovely lake with many different activities available - paddle boarding, canoeing, sail on a boat etc. As there are lots of flat thin pieces of slate, it's brilliant for skimming stones across the lake!

Complete circuit of Llyn Padarn is a nice walk. Also you could walk up through the Llanberis slate quarry, from Llanberis to Nant Peris, and return along the road. Otherwise take to the mountains, but be careful to wear good... More
