Day Walks in Wicklow
“Every Day Holds a New Adventure”
Allow your spirit to soar and venture with us into a land of wilderness beauty.
Meet and walk with like-minded people through some of the most memorable scenery in Ireland. Through broad-leaf forests; over heather-clad hills; by scenic remote valleys and lakes, you will discover the timeless beauty of a hidden landscape just waiting to be discovered.
Wicklow, a land blessed with an ambience of wonderful countryside.
Geological evolution over millions of years has arranged this landscape in such a way that today it is now an area of outstanding natural beauty and a perfect place for a day’s adventure.
Located within this paradise; in addition to the superb scenery and great walks, is a wide array of wildlife flora and fauna.
All of our walks take place at a very relaxed pace and the trails are carefully selected to give you the maximum enjoyment out of the day. The distance travelled each day will vary on the day as walks are changed daily. All the trails are chosen in a way that they can be extended or shortened.
On an average day, you will cover a distance of between 10 to 12 km with a moderate ascent.
Most walks start or finish in the charming and romantic valley of Glendalough. We will visit its world-famous Monastic Settlement; the ruined churches; decorated crosses and majestic round tower. This early Christian settlement was founded by St. Kevin in the 6th century as a place of learning.
Glendalough is also home to two beautiful lakes; giving Glendalough its Gaelic name “Glen Dá Lough” The Valley of The Two Lakes.
Some of our trails will follow part of the Wicklow Way; Ireland’s oldest waymarked trail. All trails will at some point lead you up into the mountains; where you will be rewarded with some outstanding views of the countryside.
