Sky to Sea Burren Tour – Cycling & Kayaking Adventure Combo
Our Sky to Sea Tour is a great way to get out and experience the Burren in a different way! With fantastic coastal views, including the splendour of the Aran Islands, this tour also offers amazing panoramic views of County Clare and Galway. A mix of off road and trail cycling as well as sea kayaking, this trip will sure to leave you with lasting memories and some great photos too!
Starting off from the coastal village of Doolin, we head out for an exciting day in the Burren! From Doolin, we head North into the hills and ridges of the limestone landscape. Along the way we will discover numerous ancient sites, including ring forts, and cairns. Couple this history with the spectacular views of the Aran Islands, the Cliffs of Moher, Galway Bay, and Doolin – and we have a great start to the day! Next we head down a big, fun downhill into the Caher Valley and then over the ridge ahead, stopping along the way for a breather and a snack, before getting back into the saddle. The trail continues over limestone ridges, across dirt paths, and over stone walls until we reach the quaint sea side village of Ballyvaughan, where we stop for lunch (either your picnic lunch or a choice of Tea Rooms or Monk’s Seafood Pub), and to rest our legs.
From here you join us for a half day sea kayaking trip in Ballyvaughan Bay with our sister company North Clare Sea Kayaking.
We also offer tours throughout the Burren National Park with our Ultimate Burren Adventure, or sample some local beer on our Bike & Brew tour.
