Aber Falls, Abergwyngregyn

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.

  • Visited the Aber Falls Distillery and then came here with my dad and had a fabulous walk, the waterfall really is something else definitely want to do it again and would recommend. Good walking...  more »
  • Really nice short walk with great views and a relaxing spot to sit by the waterfall. Although it was January it was a really nice warm day and not too muddy. The walk is not suitable for pushchairs....  more »
  • 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.
