About our tours

Most people who go on guided walking tours worry about how difficult they are going to be and will I be able to keep up with the group or will I be the one that slows them down, well don’t worry. Our tours are aimed at those of you who wish to explore Rathlin Island at a moderate pace, so you are not expected to be an avid walker or incredibly fit and the walks are a maximum of 3 hours in duration. All our walking leaders are experienced and professional guides with first aid training.
