Kayaking with a ‘Walk & Talk’ tour along the shores of Strangford Lough. Learn what it was like to be a Viking on this new experience for 2021.

Let John from Mobile Team Adventure guide you on the water as you discover the strength needed to steer the longboats to shore! There sure will be some laughs. Then as you dander along the lough shore be entertained by Brigid from Sustainable Journeys Ireland as she shares stories about the Vikings in the Strangford Lough area and the legacy they have left in hidden treasures (some yet to be discovered), language, sayings, craft skills and surnames. You will have the opportunity to see and examine Viking artefacts and see how the Vikings dressed for battle! Finish the experience with a drop of Mead at the Slip Inn.

This fun experience will be a great escape but one that will create many memories and Instagram moments.
