Glenmalure Walking Festival offers you opportunities to delve into history, be awestruck by unique landscapes, eat gorgeous local food, listen to traditional Irish music and meet same minded people. Over 3 days there will be gentle strolls and strenuous walks, up hills and down valleys.
Dublin’s outdoor activities company – Wilderness Fitness is organizing its 1st Glenmalure Walking Festival in Glenmalure Co.Wicklow on 11th-13th May. The main purpose of this event is to introduce people to a great way to keep fit, as hill walking certainly is.
Over the 3 days of the festival they have organized 7 different types of walks so people of different fitness levels and walking experiences can take a part and enjoy it.
There will be challenging walks, moderate walks, easy/historic walks and even a Night Hike.
Prices are various and depend on the actual walk grade. It is €15 for easy/historic, moderate and Night Hike and €20 for challenging walks.
Along with the walking part Wilderness Fitness have organized two workshops – Digital Photography and Walking with a Sketchbook – an art workshop. For as little as €25 you can learn how to draw landscapes, nature, buildings or master your photographic skills.
In the evenings, after a long day of walking, what better way to relax than over a perfect pint and traditional music session provided by Glenmalure Lodge. Make sure to bring your own instrument and voice!
