Book a guided walk in the South West of Ireland with Kerry Hiking, whose priority it is to promote the enjoyment of walking safely and responsibly in the mountains of County Kerry and West Cork.
Unpredictable Atlantic weather, complex terrain and other challenges are all part of the hill walking experience in this wonderful environment. The sheer beauty of the mountain ranges of the Iveragh, Dingle and Beara Peninsulas cannot be fully appreciated without the help and leadership of an experienced mountain/hiking guide.
There are a selection of wonderful walking routes which cater for individual preferences and abilities. These walks are categorised according to their grades of difficulty. A strenuous walk can involve a steep climb, cover 12km to 16km and take 6 hours or more to complete. Moderate walks are more suited for scrambling, can take 5 hours or more and cover 8kms to 12km. The easy walks usually involve a more progressive ascent or descent over 8km to 12km over a period of 4 hours or more.
The walks take place on varied terrain at different paces. Some sections of the routes will be through tough wet boggy moorland, uneven broken ground, areas with overgrown heather, grass or bracken, and ascending hills and mountains over steep ground. No matter the season, or how many times you have visited, each time will fill you with joy.
Groups of 8 people are catered for to make it an environmentally friendly and quality experience for everyone.
