The deepest natural lake in Wales, Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake) is right on our doorstep, and we are able to offer a range of activities that make great use of this amazing location.


Journeying by open (or Canadian) canoes is a great way to explore the lake. As well as leaning canoeing skills, groups have the opportunity of discovering more about the lake habitats, the environment around us and appreciating the natural world. We’re really lucky to be able to share this beautiful place with our groups.


Kayaking allows us to explore the lake as well, using single-person kayaks presents different challenges of a more independent nature. While learning kayaking skills groups have the chance to test out their balance, coordination and determination, all while having lots of fun on the water. We can also take the kayaks out on the rivers around North Wales, see the ‘Rivers’ section for more information


We have a range of sailing boats available at the lake to suit different groups and conditions. From small dinghies for 2-3 people, to our larger Drascombe lugger ‘Rhoswen’ which can accommodate up to 10 adults. It is amazing to see how proficient our groups can become in a short period of time, and as well as learning the sailing skills themselves sailing also gives a great opportunity to develop other qualities such as teamwork, resilience and independence.


Sup sessions, or Stand Up Paddle Boarding, is a very popular session in the summer months when the weather is warmer. A Sup session is a fantastic opportunity to go on a journey of discovery, testing out your balance, bravery and skills, all while having a fun time around, on and sometimes in the lake!

Raft / Coracle build:

Raft building is a classic team building activity that allows groups to work together to make a raft capable of carrying them around an obstacle, testing their ingenuity as well as practical skills. A coracle is a small, rounded boat traditionally used for fishing on the rivers of west Wales, giving the boat building activity a more local twist, and the groups a greater degree of artistic freedom in the design of their vessel.
