Wild Atlantic Way Mountain Lakes Hike
You will embark on your hike at sea level then ascend 300 metres where you will see two mystic mountain lakes that are situated in the Urris Hills.
Along the walk you will encounter beautiful views of Fanad, Lough Swilly, North Inishowen and the Atlantic Ocean.
Throughout the walk hear local stories, learn a bit of history and explore the local flora and fauna as you get close to nature.
You will stop for lunch with the most panoramic view you have ever seen that would probably beat the best restaurants in the world!
After your hike you can enjoy a swim in the crystal-clear water of the Atlantic at the stunning Lenan Beach - don't forget to bring your swimming togs (this is seasonal unless you are very brave!)
What to bring
Waterproof coat & trousers
Hat & Gloves
Lunch and lots to drink (2L)
Ruck sack to carry it all in.
Make sure to bring you camera as there is plenty of photo opportunities!
This walk is on a track that has mixed terrain which can be rocky, boggy, and slippery in places therefore boots are essential!
Duration - 3 Hours 30 Minutes
Distance - 7km
Please Note: A good level of fitness is required for this hike as it has a 300m ascent.
As a regular walker with Sharon and Solas Ireland Walks & Hikes, I can't recommend her walks highly enough. With varying amounts of challenge and terrain, you can choose which type you prefer, though I have enjoyed them all!
