Connemara Wild Escapes is a tour operator, based in Letterfrack, County Galway offering packaged or bespoke activity safaris and experiences to Connemara, west of Ireland. Activity safaris include leisure, walking, cycling, angling and adventure.

Join Connemara Wild Escapes on their bicycling tours or extreme biking adventures with like minded people in search of wildness, beauty, fun and the great outdoors. The area is punctuated by crafted courses, historical sites, wild rugged landscapes and the geology and natural features of the region are in a class of their own.

Package deals include elements of transport, accommodation, the biking and cycling itself, of which there are varying degrees of difficulty to suit all tastes, guided and unguided, with specially selected attractions. Designed to maximise enjoyment and minimise the hassle factor.

Mountain biking is on the rise with Connemara’s fantastic landscape which has been identified as a future mountain bike hub. Currently in the development stage, trails are being designed and built to compete with the best in the world. Ranging from easy (green) to extreme (orange) these trails will provide huge enjoyment to riders of all abilities.

Wild cycling is for people who want to roam Connemara and camp out in its wild remote spots. Cyclists of all abilities will find an amazing breadth of options on a network of country roads. Cycle lanes are in their infancy, but are improving all the time.

Tour cycling is for the less wild at heart. Touring cyclists can spend each day cycling from point to point while their luggage is brought to their next destination for them. With only their day bag and packed lunch to bring, cyclists can enjoy the scenery at their own leisurely pace.

Biking and cycling safaris are great for those who like to get outdoors, into the fresh pure Connemara air, dominated by the Twelve Bens, boarded by Lough Corrib in the east and the Atlantic on the west. So, whether visitors want to see the hills and bogs up close and personal, cycle to Clifden or around the Connemarian coast, Connemara Wild Escapes has a wide range of tours available and can make it happen for everyone.

For those accompanying the intrepid cyclists who don’t like cycling there are a range of alternative activity packages to choose from, leisure, walking, angling and adventure. Whether visitors are on their own or want to organise a group get together Connemara Wild Escapes will organise it for you.
