The Great Outdoors

Feel the adrenaline rush as you soar across the skies, drive through rugged terrain or gallop alongside crashing waves. Or, alternatively, take it easy and explore Northern Ireland's best scenery on foot, by car or at the water's edge.

Each of the six counties offers a distinct landscape and plenty of related outdoor activities. Co. Antrim's north coast has some of the islands best surfing conditions and, for a day's dander, the gorgeous Glens of Antrim. Co. Fermanagh's magnificent lakelands and Erne Shannon waterway are ideal for boating and fishing breaks. Co. Down boasts the beautiful Strangford Lough and imminently trekable Mourne Mountains. Co. Armagh's Slieve Gullion is a great place to hike and bike. And Co's. Londonderry and Tyrone offer yet more hiking, boating and fishing opportunities with the Sperrins, Lough Foyle and numerous rivers and lakes. With the River Bann cutting a swathe through the six counties and Lough Neagh - the British Isle's largest inland lake - this wee part of the world defintely packs a mighty big punch for such a small size. Here are some scintilating suggestions to help get your lungs pumping and eyeballs popping.
