After enjoying a comfortable night's sleep and a delicious breakfast in Craig Ddu you are probably feeling raring to go and see some of the local attractions. If you are looking for outdoor activities Antur Stiniog is a great starting point. Antur Stiniog was established by local residents in 2007 to encourage mountain bike riding, hiking, caving, fishing and a range of other leisure pursuits in the Blaenau Ffestiniog area of Gwynedd. They draw on their local knowledge to organise activities throughout the beautiful North Wales countryside.
As well as showing you some of the area's many outstanding beauty spots they also introduce you to Welsh history, language and culture. You get a much better appreciation of the area when you learn about the people and events that have shaped it.
In the unlikely case you cannot find something of interest, you can ask them to arrange the kind of activity that you are looking for. Since they have so much on offer for the visitor to Blaenau Ffestiniog we will just give a couple of examples to whet your appetite.
One of the most popular projects undertaken by Antur Stiniog is developing mountain bike trails in the countryside around Blaenau Ffestiniog. These bike trails offer visitors a superb opportunity to see the attractive Gwynedd mountain and forest scenery from delightful new angles. You can see much more riding along mountain bike trails than you see from driving along the roads. You are also more likely to see some of the area's rich wildlife from the saddle of your bike. If you lack mountain bike riding experience Antur Stiniog can provide you with full coaching.
Another highly enjoyable way to experience the North Wales countryside is by walking at your own leisure along its many pathways. While you can enjoy walking on your own you might prefer to join one of the hikes organized by Antur Stiniog. You can choose between challenging mountain hikes or gentle walks through pretty villages and woodland. You benefit from their extensive local knowledge to see the best the country has to offer and hear some fascinating local tales.
The fast flowing rivers of Gwynedd are amongst its most popular attractions. Whether you fancy a peaceful day's fishing or an adventurous trip in a kayak, Antur Stiniog are the people to contact. They know the choices locations and have the experience to ensure you have an unforgettable outing.
