On the northern coast of Ireland, ancient rock formations collectively called Giant’s Causeway sit, in all their natural majesty. It’s a locale where visitors marvel, climb, hike, photograph and hold their breath in witness to their wonder.
Want a look? Head over to CIE Tours Takes You to Northern Ireland’s Amazing Giant’s Causeway, one of a series of videos on CIE Tours’ YouTube channel. Watching the video’s vivid scenes, you can almost feel the bracing spray of the North Atlantic on your face and the sturdy, age-old rocks beneath your feet.
James Milliken, a community engagement officer at Giant’s Causeway, explains that while the basalt rock formations you’ll find here aren’t geologically unique, “nowhere else in the world will you find them on the scale that we have here at Giant’s Causeway.” The rocks kissed by the surf, the cliffs that soar from the seacoast, have been here for 60 million years, created during a period of intense volcanic activity. As you watch this short but evocative video, you get the sense that the Causeway has been waiting for you to come and see it, feel it, climb it and enjoy the breathtaking vistas it creates. And, there’s no better way to explore Giant’s Causeway than on a CIE Tour.
