Rarely is any other region subjected to the forces of Mother Nature as the green island of Ireland. Yet this small and rugged isle, engulfed by the surges of the Atlantic swell, is a place of natural beauty and diversity. While the Western side of the island is commonly frequented by tourists, the Northern regions remain relatively untouched. Join us on a discovery tour by bike and boat along the exceptional and dramatic coastline of Northern Ireland. Visits to important, historical and future orientated cities such as Bangor and Londonderry are combined with a unique sailing experience and the discovery of scenic landscapes and natural wonders by bike. The tour itinerary includes a visit to Rathlin Island, among additional highlights such as the Giants Causeway. Your floating accommodation for the week also offers a hands-on experience for all who are interested in learning what it means to bring a tall ship into motion.
