South of Ireland hiking tour – Day 6

We have several options for our hike and your guides will choose the most appropriate trail based on weather and other factors. One favorite section of the Kerry Way, on the Old Kenmare Road, will lead us through old oak forests, along centuries-old droving roads, past waterfalls, and into remote mountain valleys. Another Kerry Way walk leads to the ancient ruins of Muckross Abbey, down tree-covered serpentine paths beside the shores of Lough Leane and Muckross Lake, and into secluded and rare yew woodlands. Or we may choose the ascent of Torc Mountain, a hike that combines oak woodland, mountain valleys, a waterfall and an unparalleled bird’s eye view of the Lakes of Killarney. All meals included.

Hiking: 4-10 miles, 4-6 hours; Terrain: Trails, gravel roads, boardwalk and paved paths with elevation from relatively flat to mountainous; Example: Kerry Way on the Old Kenmare Road is 7.3 miles, 1,596′ ascent. Driving: 1.5 hours.
