The winding River Dyfi seperates Snowdonia from Ceredigion. To find out where to reach the river use the following instructions:

1. Head to Derwenlas on the A487 towards Machynlleth.

2. Once through Derwenlas you will see a layby to your left, with white gates to cross the railway line.

3. Once safe to cross, take your equipment through the gate and over the railway line. You will find the river on the other side.

This winding river meanders majestically through the Dyfi valley, with few if any signs of rapids.

With stone banks along the sides for a few miles, it is possible to stop, relax and enjoy the peace and serenity of the wonderful countryside on all sides. You may also enjoy a dip in the river where it is deep enough.

Further down the river the stone turns to mud and sand banks, on which stopping is not advised as you may get find yourself sinking!

When the river widens as you approach Ynyslas, it is advised that you stick to the right hand side of the water, as the channels to the left are liable to dry up at low tide.

Upon approaching Ynyslas and the river mouth head for the sands at Ynyslas to the left hand side, as it’s a long drive round to Aberdyfi for the person who is coming to pick you up!
