Deluxe Wicklow Mountains Walk


Deluxe Wicklow Mountains Walk
Wicklow Ireland
Come and discover the ”Garden of Ireland": renowned worldwide for its scenic beauty, this particularily beautiful area offers a variety of walking challenges. From woodlands and rolling hills to wild craggy mountain climbs, the Wicklow Mountains have a piece of scenery for everyone. Lying just south of the Dublin, this is the largest unbroken block of high raised ground in Ireland. It covers almost the same area as that of Mont Blanc at 50 km long and 40 km wide.



Our tour takes us through Ireland s largest National Park, covering approximately 90,000 ha, in the central uplands of Wicklow. The National Park manages and protects some of Europe s oldest peat boglands, heather covered mountains, broad-leafed and coniferous woodlands. These forests play host to most of Ireland s native mammal species; large herds of silka and red/silka hybrid deer, foxes, badgers, hares and birds of prey call this region home.



Along the trek we also visit Glendalough and walk in the footsteps of St. Kevin. The monastic city of Glendalough, founded by St. Kevin in the sixth century, was once a hub of learning in Europe. This University City was Ireland s earliest proto-urban development. By the seventh century, Ireland held an intellectual primacy unmatched in Europe. Today, history lives in the ruins of Glendalough; its imposing round tower overlooks a scene of tranquil beauty: a valley of two lakes (Gleann Da Loch) possessing contemplative ambiance and a landscape imbued with the spirituality of its illustrious past.
