Walks and archaeology on Ellan Vanin

Ellan Vannin - the Isle of Man – located in the middle of the Irish sea, ringed by Northern Ireland, Scotland Wales and England, is neither part of the UK or the EU, is governed by its own parliament, the Tynwald, and boasts its own distinct traditions and culture. We explore the stunning natural landscapes of this magical 33-mile-long island discovering some of its rich archaeology and history from the Neolithic period and the Iron Age, its Celtic and Norse past and modern history under the control of the Earls of Derby, the Dukes of Athol and then the British Crown. This tour includes some lovely gentle walks along coast and through rolling countryside (none more than 4 miles).

Tour highlights:

  • Discover the stunning natural beauty of this UNESCO listed island with sites all within easy reach from our base in Douglas
  • Experience the island’s rich transport heritage, with railways from the Victorian era still in operation today
  • Explore Iron Age and Norse settlements and Neolithic Chambered tombs
  • Enjoy some gentle walks and fantastic views in the countryside and along the coastline
