We will hike in the Mourne Mountains shaped by ice during the last Ice Age 12000yrs ago, forged by fire and gentled by rain, water and man. You will be lead off the tourist trail where you will feel like you are the only people on the hill. Knowing the mountains as well as I do and being a qualified Mountain leader, I will be able to take you to places off the beaten track where you will see the hills in their unspoiled condition and be free from the hustle and noise of other walkers. You will feel like you own the mountains. You will take in the magnificent views glacial valley below Slieve Donard, the highest mountain in the range at 850 metres. We can can also take you on this walk at night where you can watch the sun set behind the mountains and watch the night sky without the interruption of light pollution. You will be shown the mountain plants, and flora as we walk and my experience and knowledge will enable you to see the wildlife in the sky and under our feet. Your enjoyment and safety is our priority and you will return invigorated.

We will travel to the Mournes and walk through an ancient forest gently climbing out onto the hillside where we will traverse along a ridge line giving fantastic views of Slieve Donard and the valley below, before summiting. The route known by only a few, offers the best views of Slieve Donard and the surrounding area. You will breath in and take in all the Mournes has to offer
