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.

  • Lovely exploring short walk up to Aber Falls. Easy walk and beautiful views. Can carry onto Snowdonia National Park following this.

  • So to start with the parking machine wouldn’t take 50p or £2 coins so we left a note in our window and luckily didn’t get a ticket. This was the lower car park. The upper car park has toilets...

  • Stunning views. The walk from the car park isn’t too bad. Path is easy to follow. Wales has amazing scenery and so lucky to have this on my doorstep. You need £5 in coins to park at the official car parks. No cards / notes. Plenty of spaces.
  • A stunning location in North Wales, well worth the visit. Very popular at weekends and holidays. Allow a couple of hours for the walk but it's steady going all the way. Interesting things to see along the way, including an iron age hut circle and bronze age standing stone. Car park is a fixed rate of £5 and doesn't take card. Some people leave their tickets in the machine when they leave.
