Llyn Brenig plays host to the World Fly Fishing Championships and regularly hosts Fly Fishing International challenges. It has an international reputation for the quality of the fishing and it is one of the few remaining fisheries preserved exclusively for fly-fishing. This fantastic fishing venue is open to all who want to have a go (purchase your licence at the Visitor Centre or at the machine)!

At our on site Fishing Shop we stock everything you need to get you out on the water to hopefully catch the big one. It’s the best place to buy Fishing Permits and Fishing Tackle.

Llyn Brenig is one of the most popular places to go walking in Conwy, north Wales. There are many walking routes to choose from, all with spectacular views.

Walking maps and suggested routes for all of our Walking Trails can be picked up from the visitor centre, which provides all the information and facilities that you will need to enjoy your day out.

Llyn Brenig has a range of cycle routes of varying difficulty – all taking full advantage of the perfect conditions and landscapes for cycling. Whatever your age or cycling ability, Llyn Brenig is a fun, healthy way to explore some of the 2500 acres that surround the lake. There is a network of waymarked trails available for you to cycle along, or you can choose your own route if you prefer.


Are a friendly bunch who welcome new members of all ages and abilities. Whether you own a cruiser, a dinghy or want to use a club boat to learn how to sail why not become a member today? You can join the Club as a family, group or individual, with junior membership with a guardian available too, but you must be a member to sail on Llyn Brenig lake.

Hire a Kayak or Canoe and explore the lake peacefully. Without the hum of a boat engine you will hear the sounds of nature as you paddle. You don’t have to be a Sailing Club Member.

Great fun for the young and young at heart. A giant, inflatable human hamster ball floating on the water, it’s harder and even more fun than it looks! You don’t have to be a Sailing Club Member to try Zorbing.

The large, dedicated play area has swings, slides, climbing frames, rockers and the ever-popular mini zip wire. A safe area for those with boundless energy to blow off steam with freedom to run around and enjoy the fresh air.

Please note: dogs not allowed within the play area.
