Aber Falls (Welsh: Rhaeadr Fawr) is a waterfall located about two miles (3 km) south of the village of Abergwyngregyn, Gwynedd, Wales.

The waterfall is formed as the Afon Goch plunges about 120 feet (37 m) over a sill of igneous rock in the foothills of the Carneddau range. Two tributaries merge; the enlarged stream is known as Afon Rhaeadr Fawr; from the road bridge, Bont Newydd ("New Bridge"), the name becomes Afon Aber.

  • This waterfall was wonderful! We took the short route which only took about 20 minutes each way. It was so high and powerful and simply in a lovely location!

  • One of the most beautiful places in the whole of the UK I've visited, The roughly 90 minute walk to the falls is worth it completely! Great for hiking and dog walking, And with good facilities from the car park to the exhibition. Truly a must visit place when visiting Wales.
  • Well worth the walk. Save yourself a couple of quid park just off the duel carriage way for free. Then walk the long way (up the side of the valley). Although this does involve some very steep climbs at the start. The views from the top of the valley are worth the walk alone and you really feel you've earned it when you get there. There were also very few people on this route.
