Creating a world-class outdoor adventure destination

Meirionnydd in south Snowdonia is one of the UK’s top visitor destinations, attracting hundreds of thousands of people to its spectacular scenery, rugged countryside and outdoor adventure activities each year.

Snowdonia - one big adventure is a £4 million project creating and developing the best outdoor adventure opportunities the sector can offer through four key sites. Have a look at our videos on YouTube

Antur 'Stiniog, Blaenau Ffestiniog
Antur Stiniog have developed four downhill bike trails in Blaenau Ffestiniog and are attracting bikers from all over the country. Since opening in June 2012, over 6000 brave bikers have dared the trails. These super-fast flowing trails have rollers, jumps, drops and rock features as well as some of the best berms around. A new visitor centre is opening at Llechwedd with café, conference facilities, showers and bike workshop in July 2013 as by the end of the year a linking trail down into the town of Blaenau Ffestiniog will be complete giving visitors at the attraction a chance to visit the town’s many shops, cafes and learn more about the fascinating history of the famous ‘slate town’. Keep up to date with news and developments by joining their Facebook Group and watch out for the launch of the Llyn Tanygrisiau Lake path set to be complete by the end of the year.

Coed y Brenin Forest Park is already famous for its world class mountain bike trails and visitor facilities. Snowdonia – one big adventure has helped to build the new ‘blue graded’ MinorTaur trail which is suitable for families as well as new skills area and improved visitor centre facilities. This multi activity park with everything to from rope works to geo-caching, just got even better.

Prysor Angling, Trawsfynydd
Llyn Trawsfynydd already attracts a wide range of anglers both locally and from further afield. The lake is considered to be one of the finest trout fisheries in the country, with international competitions being held regularly for Stocheck Rainbow and Wild Brown Trout. Pike have recently become the choice of an increasing number of anglers at the lake and with a large number of fish over the magical 20lb being caught, already, the lake is expected to gain a reputation for fine specimens of Pike. With the support of Snowdonia – one big adventure, the Prysor Angling Association is creating new facilities for anglers and improving activities at the lake. The aim is to have a fishing destination like no other.
