This very scenic long hike is very pretty. Make sure you keep aside at least half a day for this activity. The route is full of wildflowers, thick carpets of grass, nesting birds, water bodies and some challenging trails.

A lot of walking and sometimes in very steph climbs but well worth to do. A pair of binoculars and a good camera is almost a must. Well worth to sit and wait in the evening at the typical place for the Atlantic Puffin. They...More
