Betws-y-coed is an excellent centre for numerous activities catering for a wide range of capabilities and appetites.  There are wonderful mountain, forest and lakeside walks taking in some the most spectacular scenery in the UK; many of these are easy to moderate whilst others are more strenuous.  For cyclists,  Eryri/Snowdonia  also boasts some of the best mountain biking trails in Europe, again many are designed for different levels of ability. 
Waterloo Bridge, built in 1815 to commemorate  the Battle of Waterloo, is a short walk from Glyntwrog House.
The area is steeped in history, from Neolithic burial sites to towering, Norman castles and elegant stately homes and gardens.  For those with a penchant for adventure, we are surrounded by a number of action-based attractions that can take you deep underground or send you zipping through the air at high speed. These local adventure activities include Zip World, Bounce Below, Go Below and Surf Snowdonia.

If you just want  to take it easy and enjoy the stunning environment at a leisurely pace, then perhaps any number of glorious scenic drives through the mountains and valleys is for you.
