All walks are led by experienced walking leaders who will enhance your day with information on local history flora and fauna.

Most of the walks take us through the Wicklow Mountains National Park. The Park covers approximately 90,000ha in the central uplands of Wicklow. The park manages and protects some of Europe’s oldest peat boglands, heather covered mountains, broad-leafed and coniferous woodlands, playing host to most of Ireland’s native mammal species including large herds of sika and red/sika hybrid deer, foxes, badgers, hares and birds of prey.

Please note: Walks may be changed on the day depending on weather conditions or the fitness level of the group at the leader’s discretion.
