Carrauntoohil Night Climbs & Night Nav

After the success of our Carrauntoohil Summer Solstice Night Climb we're running two more Carrauntoohil Night Climbs, on both Saturday 7th August and Saturday 21st August.

We're also running a Night Navigation Workshop on Saturday 28th August, designed to give you the skills to map read and navigate across the hills in darkness.


Carrauntoohil Night Climb
Make an exciting and unique night ascent of Carrauntoohil, in darkness with head torches and guides. Stand on the summit of Ireland's highest mountain at dawn to savour the early morning calm and hopefully sunrise over the MacGillycuddy Reeks... After descending Carrauntoohil in the dawn light, enjoy a huge freshly cooked breakfast in Killarney.

Meet at midnight just outside Killarney for registration and gear check. Then drive to the base of Carrauntoohil for a four to five hour walk to the summit. Relax on the summit to watch the sun rise over the Gap of Dunloe and MacGillycuddy Reeks at approximately 5am, weather permitting. Descend down through glaciated corries and high cliffs and finish this unique experience with a huge freshly cooked breakfast in Killarney at approximately 9am.

Price: €85 per person; or €75 per person, for four or more people

Guided Ascent of Carrauntoohil
Freshly Cooked Breakfast @ Scotts Hotel

Night Navigation Workshop
Spend four/five hours on the hills near Killarney at night-time, learning map reading skills and basic night navigation techniques.

This workshop aims to give you an introduction to the skills you need to navigate across the hills in darkness. It's also designed to give you the confidence and skills to descend safely from the Irish hills, should you be caught in darkness or mist on a normal day's hiking.

The practical, hands-on, workshop will begin at 9pm and finish at approximately 2am and is designed for all abilities.

Price: €75 per person

Date:
Sat 28th Aug
