    Day 1: Belfast Before you start your trip along the Antrim Coast, we have reserved for you a fantastic cycling tour around the vibrant city of Belfast (optional extra). The capital of Northern Ireland is the cradle of the legendary RMS Titanic where you can feel her presence in many parts of the city. But not everything is about this gigantic beauty, you’ll also have the chance to see different monuments dedicated to the political conflicts of the twentieth century in Belfast such as the Peace Wall. The Belfast Castle and Saint Anne Square are two of the other iconic places that you can’t forget to visit. You can also drink a pint and listen to the traditional Irish music in one of the many pubs that fill the streets of this beautiful city.

    Day 2: Carrickfergus & Gobbins Cliff Path You have to wake up early this morning because one of the longest days of the tour is waiting for you. Start cycling along the coastline until Carrickfergus where you’ll have the chance to see the Norman style castle that was used as a fortress for the Irish, French, Scottish and English. Following the coastline up north you arrive in Larne, where we recommend you park the bicycle to walk along the Gobbins Cliff path. It is a three hour walk along a path with more than 100 years of history and gives you amazing views of the basalt cliffs over the sea.

    Day 3: Glenarm & Glenariff Today you’ll ride through the Coast Road that brings you to Glenarm, where you can see a lovely castle built in 1636 by the first earl of Antrim. Nowadays there is still a member of his family living there. It is a lovely estate and has beautiful gardens. After Glenarm we arrive in the village of Waterfoot, better known as Glenariff. It is one of the most beautiful fishing villages of the Antrim Coast. At this point you can decide if you want to follow the coastline by the shorter way or take the long path inland to visit the Glenariff Forest Park. You can see the impressive Glenariff Waterfalls surrounded by the lush forest park. At the end of the day you arrive in Cushendall; after a long day of cycling, relax in the town, have a pint or visit the Curfew Tower, which was once a prison.

Cross the River Glendun to leave Cushendun and head towards Ballycastle. You will take the Torr Road, which provides some of the most amazing views of the Antrim coast. As you cycle along enjoying the views, you pass Torr Head. From here you can see the Scottish coast which is just 10 miles away.

After 25 minutes of sailing, you arrive at the dock and get on your bicycles to explore the island. Head towards the east of the island and then down to the southern end. This island could be on every biologists bucket list because of the existence of animal species which are particularly rare, such as the purple eyed rabbit. Can you spot one? Another tourist attraction is the impressive Rathlin Lighthouse on the west side of the island. Back in Ballycastle you can explore the little town or just relax to be in top shape for tomorrow.

There are 40,000 interlocking basalt columns which are the result of a volcanic eruption more than 60 million years ago. The rock formations and views will leave you stunned.
