Llyn Padarn is a picturesque lake, about 2 miles long, located alongside the small Welsh town of Llanberis. It is used for canoeing, and rowing, but motor driven craft aren't permitted, except for the commercial tourist boat 'Snowdon Star'.
It was a bitterly cold day, with a strong northerly wind blowing, when we visited. The surrounding mountains were coated in snow, which in spite of the cold was very scenic.
There weren't any boats operating, due of course to the cold weather, but there were a few walkers and runners about. We had lunch in the nearby 'Electric Mountain' visitor centre, which stands on the lake shore. There are also several cafes and pubs in Llanberis, and lots of car-parking. It was far too cold for us to walk right round the lake, which is about 6 miles total, but we did manage a decent walk along the Llanberis side shore. The highlight for me was seeing a male goosander, which is an unusual duck, and one I've never seen before. There's also a 20 foot sword sculpture overlooking the lake, which honours the ancient Welsh princes, such as Owain Glyndwr, Llywelyn Fawr, and Llywelyn ap Gruffudd.

Get yourself ready for a really really long walk with plenty of food and water. You can take your dog with you . The view is absolutely beautiful.and if the view compels you to stop for the night. I recommend the Padarn hotel, where they allow dogs.

This is a quiet and beautiful lake with spectacular Snowdonian views. This was not my first visit and will not be my last. The mountains are dappled with snow at this time of year making them even more beautiful.

The views across the lake are exceptional, with a choice of trials to wander along, we walked along the south side of the lake, access to easy and fairly level.
During the season there a small streamer offering trips around the lake.
