The charm of the Connemara region lies in its natural environment. Heaths, peat bogs, swamps and lakes are reminiscent of untamed nature mixed, under a misty rain, with the magic of the Gaelic tradition. The legendary country with its humid climate reveals wild and unlimited land which is ideal for hiking enthusiasts who love rough roads, with sometimes rocky or soft and spongy ground. The landscapes seem to be so vast that a road has been named the "road to heaven". To calm down after viewing such overwhelmingly impressive nature, settle in the picturesque ?cosy' cottages nestled in the villages of the region, such as Letterfrack, close to the Connemara National Park.
