This off-the-beaten-track tour for the more adventurous lets you find your own secluded beach, waterfall or secret place in a thousand square kilometres of open space just for you.
This tour takes you off the beaten track. Cars here are rare and its your day to take your time to explore, find a secluded beach, secret waterfall or track and relax. Using the Greenway, Ireland’s only purpose built cycle route, we head off into a thousand square kilometres of wilderness exploring glacial riverbeds, waterfalls, bronze age forts, ancient abbeys and castles along the way. This is a wilderness of many choices and each will give you a great sense of wonder and enjoyment. Here the sheep outnumber you by a hundred to one. Watch salmon leap up waterfalls, trout jump, herons and kingfishers dive and splash, and otters play.
You can enjoy some of Europe's rarest fauna, birds and wildlife in Ireland’s rarest wetlands and dunes. Why not try kayaking in a secluded bay overlooked by Grainuaile’s - the Pirate Queen’s - castle? Or cycle through ancient Atlantic oak woods or simply lie back on a picnic blanket and watch the sky and wonderful light change.
Whether its your first or tenth time to Mayo, this is an adventure you won't forget, at your own pace and time. Our guides will be around to help with invaluable local knowledge of hidden secrets stories and information, but ultimately it's your adventure. Go explore, and leave only tracks.
