    Your Contributions Making a Difference

    Launched in 2010, the Wilderness Conservation & Community Fund (WCCF) is an initiative that allows our travellers to give back to the environments and communities at the heart of our adventurous experiences in wild places.

    Each holiday includes a small optional contribution (less than 1% of the trip price) to the WCCF. 100% of all traveller contributions received go to supporting a wide range of conservation and community projects throughout the destinations we feature and visit. You can read all about our current key projects here, alongside details of other initiatives we have supported.

    Wilderness Ireland absorbs all of the administration costs of the fund and the projects, meaning the contributions deliver maximum impact. In addition, the Wilderness staff team dedicates 500+ hours of volunteering time per annum to those projects supported as part of our “Big 100” volunteering programme.

    in your own words

    We had a great 6-day, self-guided, ride around the Sligo, Ireland. The bikes were topnotch and routes on Garmin made it easy to find our way around to the next destination. We found Wilderness Ireland to be very well run and attentive to our needs and made our trip very enjoyable.
