The International Appalachian Trail (IAT) Ulster-Ireland is 279 miles (449km) long and is the next step on the world's largest network of walking trails which share a common geological heritage - the Appalachian – Caledonian Mountains - and which stretch across 3 continents.

The coast to coast trail begins on the Atlantic Coast in South West Donegal at the spectacular Slieve League cliffs, journeys inland along the Blue Stack Way and then into County Tyrone. Here the route picks up the Ulster Way, explores the stunning Sperrin region, passes the Giant’s Causeway and the North Antrim coastline before traversing the Glens of Antrim and reaching its final destination at the port of Larne.

The IAT Ulster-Ireland is suitable for a wide range of visitors, whether you are looking to undertake the challenge of through walking the entire trail, exploring long sections in a specific area or discovering a short circular or linear section of trail.
