From adrenaline-filled activities to excursions in the landscape, here are the best things to see and do around the town the locals refer to as ‘Stiniog’.

Where to Go in Blaenau Ffestiniog

The long history of slate mining in Blaenau Ffestiniog means that it’s an excellent place to learn more about the tradition, and there’s nowhere better to do that than at Llechwedd. The Deep Mine Tours offered here to take you right down into the heart of the landscape and tell the story of the area from the perspective of the mineworkers who used to spend their days here.

Another of the most popular tourist attractions in the area is Zip World Caverns which offers the unique chance to explore the underground caves of Blaenau Ffestiniog via a series of rope bridges, zip lines and trampoline tunnels. It’s an incredibly exciting experience that is great for families and suitable for all weather conditions, which is great if you’re visiting in the spring or autumn.

If you fancy seeing more of the area around the town, you can ride the Ffestiniog Railway from Blaenau Ffestiniog to Caernarfon on a narrow-gauge railway line. The track follows the route that the slate used to take from the local quarries to the port, and offers wonderful views of Snowdonia and the Moelwyn mountains along the route.

What to Do in Blaenau Ffestiniog

As with many Welsh towns in the region’s countryside, a great way to spend your time whilst staying in Blaenau Ffestiniog is planning hiking trips. The surrounding scenery of slate heaps, hills and mountains offers plenty of terrains to sink your walking boots into, particularly on sunny days when you’ll be able to enjoy views for miles around.

Mountain biking is one of the most popular activities amongst visitors to the area, so if you’re looking for a high-energy cycle experience then this is the place to enjoy it. Antur Stiniog is a mountain biking centre with 14 different trails suitable for all levels of experience, developed inside what was once Llechwedd Quarry.

If you’re looking to learn more about the history of the town, you can start by finding all of the quotes, local sayings and references to historical events and quarrying terms that are engraved into the pavements around Blaenau Ffestiniog. There are also several colourful murals around the streets that reference local mythology and provide more insight into the influences that this charming Welsh town was built on.

Best Time to Visit Blaenau Ffestiniog

One of the best things to do when visiting Blaenau Ffestiniog is exploring the stunning beauty of the surrounding area, and the best conditions for this are when the weather is hot and sunny. Therefore, the best time to visit Blaenau Ffestiniog is in the summer between July and August when the weather in Wales is the warmest and the chances of rain are relatively slim.
