Which Wild Atlantic Way Walk is best for me?

For your virtual walk, you can select a walk along the coast of Donegal, Sligo/Leitrim, Mayo, Galway or Clare. Here is some advice so you can select the right challenge for you depending on your fitness level at the moment. Example:

  • If you walk 1-2 times per week, the coast of Sligo/Leitrim would be best for you.
  • If you walk most days of the week, the Galway coast is a good choice for you.

Each challenge is described in the box below. It tells you how long the challenge that you selected is and gives you a guide on how many kilometers you should walk every day in order to meet the challenge within the 6 week deadline.
