Star Trekking is a guided Stargazing adventure that takes you into the wonder and awe that is the night-time sky in Ireland usually around the time of a significant meteor shower.
Having gained an international reputation as an aurora-watching location, Ireland – particularly the North West, such as the Sperrin Mountains and Inishowen – has unlimited potential in terms of dark skies to provide for an unparalleled night hiking experience.
Equally, night-time photography is gaining local and international notoriety with stunning time lapse images emerging from Ireland.
Our Star treks or Night hikes, or Star Treks for short, are guided experiences which may or may not include an overnight depending on time of year and personal preference. This may be camped or indoor. The key is a late night and/or early dawn walk in a suitably un-(light) polluted location which provided maximum awe-value for one and all.
An incredible experience all-round, our Star Treks happen at times of maximum stellar activity such as meteor showers. Led by an experienced guide who ensured your comfort and safety during the trek, plus a cup of hot chocolate to keep the experience a warm one!
