Wicklow Wilderness Camps
There is an innate curiosity and spirit of adventure in everyone. This is particularly true for children and young people.
The search for knowledge through challenging situations, meets this deep yearning in the young, by allowing them to use their creativity and imagination. Adventures do not stifle curiosity; rather, they prod the mind to explore innovative solutions in challenging situations… thus, life becomes more exciting, productive and above all, fulfilling.
We organise Tipi and Hammock Camping at our private wilderness site located in Wicklow between Laragh and Rathdrum village. The site is in a woodland/ forest setting with an added attraction of having the beautiful Avonmore river flowing alongside it. An opportunity to experience a true wilderness camping adventure in a tranquil location with its own private entrance and car parking. A place to recharge your batteries and a time to enjoy and create memories that will last forever.
Local attractions to visit include Glenmalure valley, Glendalough, Wicklow Gap and Annamoe Trout Farm - catch your fish and bring it back to camp. We'll show you a simple way of cooking fish over your campfire!
You can choose whether you want to rent a basic tipi, a furnished tipi or a camping hammock. Then decide if you want to include your meals or any other extras you might like such as cold weather sleeping bags or a marquee for larger family groups to use as their communal chill out area! For the more adventurous why not book a mountain craft course? If you need any help choosing what you need please contact us.
Please note: This is a wilderness site offering basic facilities and if you wish to bring some additional equipment for your own comfort, you are most welcome to do so. Please also note that unlike a commercial site with a waste disposal service, we kindly ask all our guests to remove and dispose of their own rubbish responsibly. Tipi Adventures practice a 'Leave No Trace Policy' and guests should try to minimise the rubbish they generate during their stay.. If you have rubbish bags you would like us to dispose of, a fee of €5 per bag will apply.
