Do you dare to take to the cliffs?
Following the success of last year’s partnership, the National Trust and local tour company, ‘Away A Wee Walk,’ are delighted to have relaunched the spectacular Clifftop Experience hike.
The Giant’s Causeway Clifftop Experience is a fantastic five-mile hike from the ruin of Dunseverick Castle along the stunning clifftop path to Northern Ireland’s first World Heritage Site, the Giant’s Causeway. On this spectacular journey, walkers will enjoy the breath-taking view of Ireland’s famous coastline which provides some of the best cliff top views in all of Europe.
Alastair Walker, Giant’s Causeway Site Manager, explained: ‘We want to encourage people to make the most out of what this outstanding coastline has to offer. The Clifftop Experience is an incredible hike with an amazing view, and visitors will have the opportunity to find out all there is to know about this beautiful place and learn more about the conservation work of the National Trust across the Causeway Coast and Glens.'
Eimear Flanagan, Away a Wee Walk said: ‘Away A Wee Walk is thrilled to be working alongside the National Trust again to offer visitors to the North Coast a truly breath-taking experience. The cliff top path is simply spectacular and the 944,000 annual visitors to the site can now experience even more of this amazing coast.’
The National Trust, the UKs largest conservation charity, maintains this section of the famous Ulster Way walking route. The remarkable cliff landscape and coastal farmland is home for creatures big and small: cattle and sheep inhabit the surrounding fields, chomping down the long grass, while insects thrive below.
