The Lakes of Mid-Wales - Self Guided

Crys Melyn are partners of Cambria Tours Ltd.

Mid Wales is renowned for its many lakes and reservoirs, and is often described as the Welsh Lake District. This tour takes in some of the most spectacular as we cycle around Nant y Moch and the Elan Valley reservoirs in the beautiful Cambrian Mountains.

Our tours incorporate parts of the Wild West Sportive and old Trans Cambrian Sportive routes. Without doubt the most stunning feature of this tour are the alpine-style mountain passes which you will navigate on the way to the hilltop lakes. You will also ride through the bustling seaside and market towns of Aberystwyth, Borth and Rhayader.

Your base for this tour is the historic village of Devil's Bridge. Your hotel accommodation has history and character in abundance, and a lively bar that serves food made with local, seasonal produce. There will be plenty of time between rides for a stroll down to the delightful Mynach Falls, or to take a trip on the Vale of Rheidol narrow-gauge railway.

Please note: all bookings are done through our partners Cambria Tours Ltd.
