Throughout the trip your host will point out the seasonal flowers, fauna and explain the geology of the area, as well as the history and local folklore.
You will then travel to Dunseverick Castle where your host will take you back in time to the 5th century and you will have the pleasure of walking along a 5 mile stretch of an area of outstanding scenery.
