Hikers can also make a nice enjoyable day out when they attempt to explore this hidden gem, as the lake can be reached on a hike in Snowdonia.

It roughly takes 3 hours and 10 minutes in order to complete the Llyn Glaslyn and Llydaw hike, so it is generally a moderately challenging route.

Llyn Glaslyn, which means 'Blue Lake' is an ellipsed-shaped lake which in a way resembles a heart (if you look hard enough!).

For those who love a bit of Welsh history; it was said that Arthur had Bedivere throw his sword Excalibur into Llyn Glaslyn, where Arthur's body was later placed in a boat to be carried away to Afallon.
