Itinerary in depth

Unlike the full day tour which is only accessible to people who are staying in Belfast, the half day tour is specifically designed for anyone who is self-driving around the north coast.  Staying anywhere between Larne and Limavady, there is plenty of time to get to the walk departure point by 10.00 a.m for the guided tour.

Guided 6 mile cliff path walk (half day tour has a slightly longer walk due to access to car park facilities)
With advance booking by 8.00 p.m. the night before, you will be met at Dunseverick Harbour (directions and GPS instructions provided with booking) by you local walking guide.  The 6 mile walk is a spectacularly scenic, cliff path walk to the UNESCO world heritage site of the giant’s causeway.  The geology, giant and landscape stories are all best enjoyed and experienced by walking the entire coastline.  The cliff views along the path are comfortably among the best such views in Europe.  Most of the path is grass (which can be prone to being muddy in winter, early spring and if it has been very wet in the summer).  The path undulates but is not particularly strenuous for those of average fitness or above.  There are stone steps, wooden stiles and gates along the path.  The tour is perfectly designed for the visitor to take plenty of photographs.

Giant’s Causeway site
Descending the cliffs to sea level at the end of the walk via the Shepherd’s Steps there is sufficient time to enjoy climbing around the fascinating 40,000 hexagonal basalt columns before walking to the visitor centre whereby it is possible to return to Dunseverick car park by rambler bus or local taxi.

What to bring/wear

A snack
