For lovers of the outdoors you are spoilt for choice! Explore the quieter local Moelwyn  mountains where former slate mining villages can be investigated and rivers swum in or head into the main mountains of the Snowdonia National Park for lakeside strolls or mountain walking and climbing up the highest peaks. This is a superb area for mountain biking with local downhill trails at Antur Stiniog and further trails for all abilities at Trawsfynydd, Coed-y-Brenin, Betws-y-Coed and Penmachno, not to mention superb cross country trails to explore. There are nearby golf courses and fishing, water sports on the local lakes and rivers and many local companies offering day activities.

For adrenaline junkies there is Zip World zip wires and Bounce Below underground trampolines, for young and old alike, a great wet weather activity. New to the area is Surf Snowdonia a manmade surf centre complete with fun splash zone for the kids.
Away from activities, the Ffestiniog Railway follows a scenic route into Porthmadog, the Lechwedd slate mines offer underground tours, and the famous Italiante village of Porthmeirion is close by and spectacular throughout the year. Also a visit to the pretty village of Criccieth and the picturesque castle is a must.

The beaches at Black rock sands and Borth-y-Gest are stunning and good for water sports. From here you can access the Lleyn Peninsula with further beaches and coastal villages.
