Isle of Man

Key time to cruise: All year round
What we enjoyed: Watching the TT racing

Discover beautiful scenery in the lush valleys, barren hills and rugged coastlines of the Isle of Man. 

The Isle of Man is found in the Irish Sea between Great Britain and Ireland. It’s known for its rugged coastline, medieval castles and rural landscape. The Isle of Man is also well known for the TT race, which is a major annual cross-country motorcycle race around the island. When the Greywolf crew last visited the island they were lucky enough to witness this fast and exhilarating race in action. For a slower pace of life, the crew visited the capital, Douglas, where the Manx Museum traces the island’s Celtic and Viking heritage.

Hiking is a great way to see the island. The main footpath is the Raad ny Foillan (The Way of the Gull), which is a path around the island. It is a challenging 100 mile walk that can be broken down into smaller sections. The footpath allows you to take in the beauty of the cliff footpaths, quiet sandy beaches and wooden glens.
