If you are an adventurous lady, you need to head along on one of the Galz Gone Wild tribe’s weekend adventures in the hills.

We absolutely love hearing about new adventure tribes popping up around the country, and the group known as Galz Gone Wild are definitely one of our favourites. A community, set up by Melissa Mcdermott, who spend their weekends in the mountains of Ireland hiking and practising yoga. If you are an adventurous woman and want to spend your weekend a little differently, here are the trips the GGW crew have lined up for April.

Galz Gone Wild

Hike & Yoga Adventure

Sunday 22 April

The morning will begin with a slow and steady yoga practice allowing the body to release gently before we set off on our hike. Giving ourselves some time and space we will settle into our surroundings and take stock of the stunning view of the Wicklow Mountains from the comfort and warmth of the studio. We will then enjoy some teas and coffees before we set off for a morning of adventure on Brockagh Mountain.

Following beautiful woodland paths, forest tracks and open mountain trails we will pause occasionally to bring our awareness back to the beauty that surrounds us. We will ascend to the peak of Brockagh Mountain where we will receive wonderful views of Wicklow national park and the surrounding peaks. Making our descent we will follow the forest trail leading us to our finishing point at the monastic site of Glendalough.

Pick up/Drop off: 7:15am/2:30pm

What’s included?

  • Your return transport. Pick up points: Grafton street & Dundrum village
  • A 3-4 hour lead hike through the Wicklow Mountains
  • A 1-hour indoor yoga practice
  • Tea/Coffee

Double Summit Sunrise Hike & Breakfast

Sunday 29 April

Traversing the cliffs high above Glendalough’s Upper Lake at sunrise we then climb across the peaks of Mullacor and Derrybawn Mountain that enclose the valley to the South. This route explores the ridge between Glendalough and Glenmalure, probably the two most renowned valleys in the Wicklow Mountains. The mountains themselves are not overly challenging but provide stunning views. Having conquered two summits well before noon its time for you to kick back and enjoy a well earned full Irish breakfast in our own private dining room in the Glendalough Hotel.

Pick up/Drop off: 5:00am/1:00pm

What’s included?

  • Your return transport. Pick up points: Grafton street & Dundrum village
  • A 4-5 hour led sunrise hike
  • Full breakfast with tea/coffee in The Glendalough Hotel (Veggie option available)
