Mountain biking Wales, Llyn Brenig & Alwen

UK Mountain biking trail in North Wales

Welcome to Hiraethog in North Wales – unspoilt and waiting for you to explore

Hiraethog, ‘The Hills of Longing’ (or translated by some as 'gorse hill'), in the heart of North Wales is a stunning, unspoilt landscape of heather moor, thick forests, tranquil lakes and open spaces, dotted with charming villages and topped by big, open skies. Home to rare wildlife, such as red squirrels, beautiful scenery and warm Welsh hospitality, this is somewhere where you can really get away from it all. Relax and enjoy the peace and quiet, or get out there and experience some of the country’s best biking, walking, fishing, and water sports locations.

Accessed easily via the A5 main route to Betws y Coed, Hiraethog is at the gateway to Snowdonia, and in no time you can be experiencing all that Llyn Brenig, and the Hiraethog moors have to offer. With a fantastic choice of quality places to stay, places to eat and an exciting programme of events in North Wales throughout the year, you’ll have everything you need to make the most of your holiday in Hiraethog.
