Know More about this tour

Your tour is designed to visit as many sights as possible in one day, so you'll have chance to stop along the way to admire the  Dark Hedges, a key filming location for hit TV series Game of Thrones, for 10 - 15 minutes. The trees were planted 270 years ago by the Stuart family as a driveway to their Gracehill Manor. It is now very well known to amateur photographers. 

Next, enjoy around 1.5 hours to marvel at the spectacular landscapes at the  Giant's Causeway, made up of some 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, formed by ancient volcanic eruptions. It has often been described as the 8th wonder of the world. You will see why once you have visited the place. This is one of the world's greatest natural attractions. According to mythology, Finn built the Causeway as stepping stones to cross the Irish sea in order to battle Benandonner, a Scottish giant. Although a giant himself, when Finn reached Scotland he saw that Benandonner was almost twice his size, and immediately retreated with his rival in pursuit. Finns wife disguised him as a baby, and on seeing the child, Benandonner fled home fearing how enormous its father must be. 

Continue along the coast to the   Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge, a 66-foot (20-meter) long bridge that crosses the Atlantic Ocean, linking the mainland to the Carrick-a-rede Island. You'll have around 1 hour and 20 minutes to explore, which is plenty of time to brave the bridge crossing or hike along the coast, enjoying views of nearby Sheep Island and the Mull of Kintyre.

We will be driving along the famous  coastal route and go through beautiful coastal towns like Ballycastle where you will enjoy a fantastic view of islands just off the coast like Sheep Island, Rathlin Island and maybe even a glimpse of Scotland. 

Make a final stop in   Cushendun, the closest point between Ireland and Scotland with amazing views of Scotland on a clear day, then drive back to Belfast over the  Glens of Antrim, taking in dramatic views along the Antrim Coast.  

Your tour ends back in central Belfast around 5:30pm - 6:30pm.
