Our Causeway Coast and Antrim Glens Tour
View the iconic sites; the remarkable and breathtaking scenery at the world famous Giant’s Causeway and the thrill of the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. Then travel along the equally famous and dramatic Causeway Coastal Route.
Explore impressive exposed cliffs and beaches of the North Atlantic coastline; then, in contrast, experience the ‘off-the-beaten-track’ tranquility and charm of the diverse and beautiful Antrim Glens that look over the Irish Sea to Scotland.
Sights and Sounds
Absorb this wonderful and epic landscape overlooking the hedgerows from the van. We balance this with many stops for photo opportunities and exploration. The sounds of the crashing waves, the salty taste from the sea on your lips, the wind whistling past your ears, combined with the birds soaring above and the possible sighting of dolphins and seals – are all part of this legendary land’s beauty.
Knowledgeable and Safe
Flip, your local-guide and driver, from an Environmental Science background, will chat about the natural history, wildlife and heritage that is on show throughout the tour. He explains the landscape’s incredible formation at the Giant’s Causeway and other sites along with historical and mythical stories that bring the place to life. As a former RNLI Helmsman and a Coastguard Cliff Team member you are in safe hands throughout your tour.
