  • Finn’s Frightful Fun Fest: Tuesday 31 October - Treasure Hunt, Spectacular Spooky Tales and Creepy Crafts
  • Finn’s Autumn Adventure Trail: Monday 30 October - Friday 3 November

This Halloween half term take a giant day out at Northern Ireland’s only UNESCO World Heritage Site. This half term families can join ‘Finn's Frightful Fun Fest’ and visitors are encouraged to come dressed up for a special Halloween Treasure Hunt; special guided tours, ‘Spectacular Spooky Tales’ Creepy Crafts. These events are suitable for all ages and we will also have ‘Finn’s Autumn Adventure Trail’ running the full week of half term, from Monday 30 October to Friday 3 November.

Visitors in the autumn can look out for flocks of whooper swans, brent geese and lots of wading birds making their way from their northern breeding grounds to spend winter here. The cliffs and slopes are bathed in fading golden shades in the autumn light, and on the farmland above the hawthorn berries create a fiery red glow. Flitting around the meadows, goldfinches, linnets and twite gather into hungry flocks to search for seeds.

Remember, the Giant’s Causeway is fully dog friendly, with dogs on leads welcome on every step of the Visitor Experience, including in the café and on all guided tours.
