There are many scenic wonders in North Wales but none more beautiful that the Aberglaslyn Pass where the Arfon Glaslyn tumbles its way through a spectacular gorge. The Fisherman’s Path enables you to walk alongside the pretty cascades to the pretty village of Beddgelert. Striking peaks rise up around you and the lush foliage of the summer months turns burnished gold in autumn. There isn’t a bad time to enjoy the serenity of this wonderful gorge!
Why not take the circular Aberglaslyn, Llyn Dinas and Cwm Bychan walk? This follows the gorge to Beddgelert, then continues to the Sygun copper mine and LLyn Dinas before returning via Cwm Bychan to the car park. Alternatively try the Aberglaslyn, Bryn Du and Beddgelert walk, another circular hike which features ancient woodland as well as the footpath through of the gorge.
The A498 runs through the pass alongside the river but do stop to take in the serenity of the scenery. It’s a lovely place to walk the dogs and there are calmer sections of the river where they can have a paddle! The Welsh Highland railway also runs through the pass, so you may be lucky enough to see the steam train above you. Adjacent to the car park, which is located in Nantmor, there is a an open area with picnic tables where you can linger for a peaceful lunch and watch the train pass by.
