Sunrise Walk in Wicklow
Sunrise Trekking for Barnardos!
Join us in Wicklow on Saturday December 8th for a winter wonderland trek as we take festive guided walk in Co Wicklow and experience a magical sunrise from one of its many stunning peaks.
We’ll begin our trek before dawn, taking a trail along part of the Wicklow Way and up the historic Prince William’s Seat. From our highest point we’ll take in spectacular views of the Wicklow Mountains all around us as the sun rises - just like Ireland’s very own North Pole! Each trekker will receive a free Santa suit at registration to help them keep cosy and warm on the morning too!
When ready, we will begin the return leg of our hike and make our way back to the town of Enniskerry where we can enjoy a hearty breakfast with lots of hot tea and coffee..
