Day 1 - Welcome to Wales
Flight to Manchester and transfer to Betws-y-Coed then installation in your accommodation for 4 nights. Small stroll around the village according to the arrival time. In the heart of Snowdon National Park, this village with wooded hills enjoys a tranquility conducive to rest after busy days!
Day 2 - Conwy
Set out for a walk to some Celtic forts overlooking the sea. Then head for the village of Conwy, whose picturesque ramparts, castle and three bridges from different eras are well worth a visit.
Day 3 - Cmw Idwal
In the morning, discover the legend of Prince Idwal at Cmw Idwal, the first nature reserve in Wales. Spend the afternoon in Beddgelert, where you will discover the cult dedicated to civil engineer Thomas Telford, a modest shepherd called the “Colossus of the roads” for having directed the construction of 1500 kilometres of roads throughout the United Kingdom. In the late afternoon, take a tour of Dolwyddelan Castle.
Day 4 - Snowdonia National Park
From the village of Pen-y-Pass, walk to Llyn Llydau, a lake mentioned in Arthurian legends. This is where George Mallory organised the training for the first expeditions to Mount Everest. Going down from Llanberis Pass, it is an easy walk around Dolbadarn Castle, the only one in the world in the middle of the hills.
Day 5 - Anglesey
At Caernarfon Castle, said to be the most beautiful in the country, a former royal residence and the place of the investiture ceremonies of the Princes of Wales, you will learn about the decimation of the Celtic people by the Anglo-Normans. Passing through the village with the longest name in Europe, a reward is also provided for anyone who can pronounce it correctly: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. The ferry crossing from Holyhead to Dublin takes two hours.
Day 6 - Tara hill
Transfer to the hill of Tara, considered as the Irish Celtic capital, the former headquarters of the Celtic kings. This site has not been excavated, and there are remains of the ramparts, an upright stone that marks the place that was the spiritual and cultural capital of the country for millennia and strange circular marks on the ground that are probably linked to Druidic rites. Transfer to County Galway.
Day 7 - Cliffs of Moher
Today you will discover the legendary Cliffs of Moher. It is an impressive stroll along the cliffs, which may be familiar to you, and for good reason: they appeared in the film Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. At the edge of the 8-kilometre long precipice, you will discover sea birds frolicking in the wind and unique plant species.
Day 8 - Western Ireland
Discovery of Connemara Park and County Mayo with a short stroll on Achill Island, the largest in the country, to appreciate the beauty of this region. Stop at the megalithic cemetery of Carrowmore, where you will see beaches with emerald waters, a charming contrast with the deep green of the surrounding hills.
Day 9 - Mayo
A short discovery walk north-west of Ardara enables you to discover superb bays, in particular that of Maghera, where low tide reveals caves once used as hiding places for illegal distillers and secret chapels during religious persecutions. Weather permitting, it is possible to swim.
Day 10 - Firth of Clyde
Head to Scotland by ferry! On this day of transfer from Larne, a magnificent coastal route awaits you, with a few stops where you can admire the Irish coast and the Isle of Arran. You then pass through the Argyll region and settle into your B&B in the charming village of Inveraray.
Day 11 - Kilmarten Glen
On the west coast, discover Kilmarten Valley, a unique testimony to Scottish prehistory. You will visit the museum of this beautifully preserved, six thousand-year-old site. Dinner and overnight in Inveraray. How about going to the castle in the late afternoon?
Day 12 - Isle of Mull
Take the ferry to the Isle of Mull and then head west for a beautiful loop on an interesting stretch of coastline on Treshnish Peninsula. On your way, cliff landscapes stretch out before you, and you will have a chance to see maritime fauna, charming villages and the legendary whisky distillery.
Day 13 - Iona and Mull
Visit the island of Iona and its famous abbey. During the 6th century, Colomba, an Irish missionary came here to settle and made this island his sanctuary. In 30 years, he converted Scotland to Christianity by incorporating Celtic beliefs.

Road to Glasgow with a stop for a short walk along the Loch Lomond
