My Far and Wild experience brought me sea kayaking around the most northerly point of Ireland’s mainland, Malin head, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Irish Sea. We were treated to rare sea-views of the waves crashing against Banba’s Crown and more as we paddled along.
As a novice kayaker, I was left with a sense of great satisfaction as I was expertly guided along the challenging 10 km loop. It was one of those rare experiences that takes you away from the hustle and bustle of every day life, and lets you enjoy the stark natural beauty the north of Ireland has to offer.

Far and Wild allows you to discover not only the wilderness, but also the wild traveller within. I felt secure in their expert guides' knowledge and expertise. There is an holistic and organic ethos supporting people to gently push their boundaries without any sense of excess risk. However, it is not just about adrenaline either, with guides constantly addressing the flora and fauna of the region. It is a brilliant case study in ecotourism.

Under the glow of a spring moon and the shadow of Stockanillar Rock, we set up camp for the night and anticipated the warm reward of pasta al fresco been prepared for us as the waves lapped the rocky coastline in the distance.
Tired but satisfied, it had been a hugely enjoyable and exhilarating day negotiating the waves and circumnavigating the beautiful weathered headland of Malin in our sturdy kayaks. A wonderful experience provided by a wonderful crew. Looking forward to the next adventure.
