Llyn Tegid

Family Paddle Sports

Llyn Tegid is situated amidst the dramatic mountain landscape of south eastern Snowdonia. The scenery here is stunning; indeed the view of the Arenig Mountains from the Llangower access point is particularly fine. At 6km long and 1km wide, this is the largest natural lake in Wales. It is also quite deep; in places reaching depths of 43m.

Throughout the summer months the lake is busy with all manner of boats, canoes and sailboards. Visitors are welcome to bring their own boats and equipment, but this can be hired on site between Easter and September. There is a permit system in operation – these must be obtained before embarking on any activity on the lake. The permits can be purchased from the Lake Warden’s Centre or the pay and display machines at the Foreshore car park. Power boats (electric engines excepted) and boats longer than 5.8m are not permitted on the lake.

Approach:

Much of the shoreline is a Site of Special Scientific Interest – consequently it is important to only use the designated access points for access and landing. The main public access point is Bala Lake Forshore at the northern end of the lake. Here you will find a large car park, toilets and showers. Public access is also possible from the Fron Feuno car park (just off the A494 approximately 700m along from the Bala Lake Forshore) and from the Llangower car park on the southern side of the lake (there are also toilets here). It is possible to access the lake from lay-bys on the A494 but this will involve a long ramp or steps. The Pant yr Onnen campsite and the Glanllyn Caravan and Camping Site have private access to the lake – the charge for access via these sites varies.
