Footfalls Wicklow Walking Festival
25 Oktober 2013 - 28 Oktober 2013
The Footfalls Wicklow Walking Festival takes place in 'The Garden of Ireland'. Choose from a selection of day walks from challenging, moderate and easy or night walks. All walks are led by experienced walking leaders who will enhance your day with information on local history flora and fauna. The weekend will include a photography workshop; Nordic Walking with Michele Jameson; a walk to see all the good work Mountain Meitheal has done in Co. Wicklow; and traditional music and song at the end of the day in the local pubs. Most of the walks take us through the National Park which covers approximately 90,000 hectares, and manages and protects some of Europe's oldest peat boglands, heather covered mountains, broad-leafed and coniferous woodlands, and plays host to most of Ireland's native mammal species. You might spot some of the large herds of silka and red/silka hybrid deer, foxes, badgers, hares and birds of prey. The festival is based in the Brockagh Resource Centre, situated in the heart of the Wicklow Mountains, on the road between the village of Laragh and Glendalough.
