    Dear Friends and Travellers

    Amongst all the current uncertainty there is one thing that remains constant, the goodwill and love for Ireland being shared by all of you.

    Thank you for the deep sense of compassion and solidarity we have felt in the messages, emails and calls we’ve already had with many of you.

    I want to provide reassurance on two key matters for you, which I’ve expanded on in the dropdown sections below this message:

    1. That we are financially sustainable and on a firm footing to deliver your tour when the time is right for us to operate and for you to feel comfortable travelling again.
    2. That we have a highly capable, dedicated and resilient team that will work tirelessly to ensure that your future trip with us will be everything you’re currently dreaming of.

    As I am sure you understand, we are having to make difficult decisions to shore up our business which last month would have been unthinkable, such is the gravity and unprecedented nature of the challenges global, Irish tourism and wider society face.

    Here is how you can help. If your trip is not within the next 8 weeks, please hold off making changes to your travel plans with us. The situation is changing quickly and it’s better for everyone if you can make an informed decision nearer your time of travel. Then if you’d like to postpone your trip, we’ll be happy to help and have made our terms more flexible to allow this. Our tours operate in some of the most economically fragile communities in Europe. Your support at this time could make the difference between many rural businesses staying in business, or going to the wall and potentially changing the face of the community forever. Likewise, our amazing team of guides, many of whom you have met, are really suffering right now with no work on the horizon. Your support can help keep them in a profession they love and one they excel at.

    We are here so you can keep daydreaming of adventures. Over the last 20 years you, our customers, have been at the beating heart of our thriving business in our mission to share our passion for the inspiration, spirit and value of wild places.

    While unprecedented, we know that this storm will pass and when it does, I promise you that we will work harder than ever to deliver you a trip of a lifetime.

    Above all and with sincerity, look after yourselves and each other. Be assured that we will continue to speak with each of our clients on a personal basis as the situation evolves.

    Thank you all for your continued support in these most difficult of times.

    Best Wishes,

    Paul Easto


    Our Assurance Read More

    Over the last 20 years we’ve worked hard to build a financially sustainable business. During the good years we used any surplus to build a financial buffer to help us weather any storm that might come our way.

    Our sister companies Wilderness Scotland, Ski Solutions and BSpoke are part of a wider group of businesses that offer an additional layer of financial reassurance and buffering.

    It’s fair to say that we didn’t see this one coming but that the buffer we built provides us with enough, with some changes, to navigate this roughest of seas and continue to offer the exceptional active and nature-based tours that are the hallmark of the Wilderness Ireland experience.

    Business Continuity & Resilience Read More

    These are exceptional times and we have an exceptional team.

    We have a strong and resilient business continuity plan in place to ensure that each part of the business will remain fully functional as events unfold.

    This allows us to plan for the future and a time when people are keen to travel again.

    We know this is temporary, what remains constant is our unwavering commitment to our team and you, our customers.

    in your own words

    Group size good, much easier getting around, able to use the smaller van. I now appreciate a part of Ireland unknown to me previously. The accommodation was centrally located which was excellent for the evenings. A well thought out itinerary with enough activity to fill the day. Highly recommended. We hope to participate in another WI trip in the near future. Having mild weather added to the enjoyment!
