Designed to maximise enjoyment and minimise the hassle factor! Connemara Wild Escapes offers a range of activities: walking, hiking and trekking. For clarity’s sake our definitions are as follows:
- Walk(ing) – to move along leisurely on foot; to ramble for pleasure accompanied by your thoughts, a day pack and of course your camera. All else are optional extras. Walks more often than not finish where they start and do not take more than 6 hours to complete.
- Hike(ing) – to go walking and camping with your home on your back. Has a starting point and after periods of walking and camping ends elsewhere. The ultimate self catering holiday which requires fitness, a desire to sleep on hard surfaces in the open and cook on fire. Lasts for at least one night under canvass.
- Trek(ing) – to go walking and after a given period of time arrive at a predetermined destination. Treks occur over a few days, at least, and include overnight stays in anything other than tented accommodation. All luggage and other impediments are ferried between overnight lodgings and the Trekker need only worry about getting her/him self from one point to the next.
- Mountaineering – a climber of mountains; to ascend/descend by clutching and scrambling with or on hands and feet, if not always, but frequently using specialised equipment to stay attached to the said mountain. Currently Connemara Wild Escapes do not offer this activity.
