Walk in the footsteps of giants
At the very north coast of Northern Ireland is one of the most unique geological features on the planet. So bizarre and stunning is the site that locals formed a legend that it could only have been created by a stampeding giant.
The Giant's Causeway is approached from the top of oceanside cliffs. There are over 11 miles of hiking paths along the top of the cliffs, which provide gorgeous views of the ocean. To reach the causeway, you will have to climb down a wooden staircase winding along the cliffs.
At the bottom of the staircase giant basalt rock formations form the base of the cliffs and stretch out to the ocean. The legend says that the basalt columns stretch all the way to Scotland just visible on the horizon line.
You can walk along the top of the causeway and along the stones that descend into the crashing ocean. If you love natural beauty and unique destinations, this isolated area is a must visit on your next journey to Northern Ireland.
