Walking guide opens up a whole new Belfast
2 June 2014
With Belfast’s parks and waterways literally teeming with wildlife and blooming with the sights and scents of Summer, WalkNI.com has launched a brand new Online Walker’s Guide packed full of information on the city’s most popular walking routes including the brand new Ridge Trail on Divis & the Black Mountain in the Belfast Hills.
Illustrated with inspiring images, detailed maps and information on nearby attractions, this downloadable guide is completely free of charge and features the most popular walks in the Belfast Hills, Lagan Valley Regional Park and Belfast City Centre.
Whilst some routes are geared towards hill walkers with a reasonable level of fitness there are a whole host of other interesting and picturesque routes for people with limited mobility and families with small children. All the walks offer an alternative dimension to a typical ‘city break’ in Belfast and open up opportunities to explore Northern Ireland’s capital from a completely different angle.
Ireland’s first Everest summiteer, Dawson Stelfox, explains “This online walking guide showcases the fantastic variety of routes available for all ages and abilities in and around Belfast. It complements WalkNI.com’s other online guides in the Mournes and the North Coast and Antrim to provide a useful resource for both tourists visiting the area and local residents keen to explore the fantastic array of walks on their doorstep.”
As well as a list of Belfast’s best walking routes, this online guide provides information on a range of walking tours available in the city. These tours are both guided and self-guided so whether you want to learn of Belfast’s fascinating and turbulent history or would prefer being ‘spooked’ on an eerie ghost tour, you will find all the information you need in this new online guide available from WalkNI.com.
