Bala Lake

Bala Lake is one of the largest lakes in Wales, famous for its deep and crystal-clear waters from the River Dee. On the edge of the lake stands the town of Bala, a traditional market town featuring a busy high street and a number of historic chapels. The River Bala is an attraction in its own right, home to a rare and endangered species of fish found only in the lake, and offering boats to hire for a day on the water.

Attractions include the Bala Lake Railway, offering steam train travel around the lake and amongst the beautiful Welsh countryside. Trips are along a nine-mile route, offering a return journey through parts of the Snowdonia National Park.

Bala is home to The National Whitewater Centre, where visitors can enjoy canoeing and white-water rafting on the River Tryweryn.  The town is also close to the Aran and Arenig mountain ranges, making it a popular base for walkers. Bala accommodations include hostels and B&Bs, self-catering properties and pubs and inns, perfect for walkers and for others enjoying a leisure break in the area. You can use our site to compare prices and features, and can book Bala accommodation direct or online.
