Top Adventure Activities in Derry-Londonderry

Catching the outdoor adventure bug is like nothing else. Sure you may love to cook or have a passion for golf, but once you've abseiled down the face of a mountain, or caught your very first wave, you’re ultimately hooked. I decided to take a weekend away and head northwards to see if Derry-Londonderry could give me my adventure fix!

Biking, Hiking and Climbing

Cycling and mountain biking is huge in Ireland and for good reason. The facilities and scenery are phenomenal so you’re guaranteed breathtaking views while you push to the finishing line. I quickly found some top notch mountain and road trails dotted along the county. If you fancy an off road mountain trail, Slieve Gallion is your best bet. This trail has mud, water, jumps and forest all to yourself. If you’re like me and see yourself challenging Bradley Wiggins in the next Tour de France, take on the Foyle Valley Cycle Route, a challenging 21 mile cycle that takes in Derry-Londonderry City.

Watersports in Derry-Londonderry

Given its location, Derry-Londonderry see’s some fantastic swell all year round so make sure to mount your board to your car rack and experience the North Atlantic swell. Don't worry if you've forgotten your surfboard as the Long Line Surf School can cater to all your needs. Everyone enjoys a bit of variety, so if you’re looking to hang up the surfboard for something new then Carrowmena Activity Centre is the ideal place. Take a day out to go kayaking or canoeing on the River Roe.

I wasn't leaving Derry-Londonderry without seeing the city, so I took a walk along the Historic Walls of Derry-Londonderry. The walk reveals the city while giving you the chance to stretch your legs. From a leisurely stroll through the City of Derry to the more extreme sports of mountain biking and surfing, County Derry is bound to please your adventure needs. Don't think twice about taking the plunge. Finding the perfect place to stay won't be a problem as there is plenty of accommodation of Derry-Londonderry.
