Northern Ireland is home to some incredible landscapes that just beg to be explored. Luckily, there are lots of outdoor activities that will let you get to know the place.

Head out on to the white water rapids of the Blackwater River and you are in for a great day. A grade II-listed river, the Blackwater is safe enough for beginners while also offering an adrenaline rush for experienced white water rafters.

Skydiving is another popular option for travelers who want to see Northern Ireland in a different way. Book a jump with Wild Geese Skydive and you can launch yourself out of a plane before drifting down to the ground over lush countryside.

For something more sedate, take on one of the many long hiking trails in Northern Ireland. One of the most famous is the Mourne Mountain hiking route, which winds for 5.6 miles up to the highest peak in the country, Slieve Donard.

Get on two wheels and hurtle around the Rostrevor mountain biking trails for a real thrill. Northern Ireland is fast becoming a popular destination with trail riders, and Rostrevor shows off some of the best terrain around.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes.
