2 days/1 night: Wicklow National Park.

This weekend is about having fun, getting out and enjoying the great outdoors while hiking The Wicklow Mountains. Along the way you will learn many valuable tips and tricks about being in the mountains and maybe even grow a desire to continue onto bigger things in the mountains.

The Wild Summits Weekend Expeditions is offering those the chance to escape to the mountains for the weekend. With the Wicklow Mountains being such a close proximity to Dublin it gives people the chance to spend the weekend in the mountains while both having a great time and learning new skills. We supply all the gear needed for an overnight hiking trip and will arrange the route and we will also supply the food for the two days.

We will be touching on the basics of many skills in the mountains and by the end of it you should be more comfortable with map reading, camp-craft, using a compass and more and you also get the chance to sleep under the stars and even go for a night hike!

So see the Wicklow Mountains in a way like no other and book on today.
