Summit Mount Errigal: Private Hillwalking Tour

"With it's monumental summit, ascending this extinct volcano will impress in clear skies or shrouded in mist."

The finest mountain in the Northwest of Ireland, Mount Errigal has recently undergone extensive development meaning that hikers now have a firm path to walk on, leaving more headspace to take in the intense vistas it offers. It also means that the surrounding peatland is no longer being eroded by boots and one can clearly see the flora of the terrain recovering after just a couple of years. Another beauty of these development is that Mount Errigal is now more accessible to a wider range of skill and fitness levels.

Including transport to and from your hotel or pick up point of your choosing in Derry, Strabane or county Donegal, you'll travel in style and comfort to the hiking start point where you'll be given high-visibility vests and Nordic sticks if desired. You will receive an orientation briefing prior to commencing the walk. After that, follow my lead and enjoy the incredible sights and sounds of Mount Errigal while hearing about the history, mythology, ecology, culture and 'craic' of the local area.   

Although this is a full day tour, the average hiking time is around 3 hours. It can be done in 2 hours if you're in a hurry or 4 hours depending on how many photo stops you'd like to take along the way. Afterwards, I'll drive you to one of several lunch stop options and then show you some hidden gems in the area. If you still have energy for a further stroll, a trip to the castle and grounds of Glenveagh National Park is the perfect way to unwind after an exciting morning's hiking. This day tour is flexible in that you can opt to go sightseeing in the morning and hike Mount Errigal in the afternoon if you'd prefer.
