The Isle of Man is a fascinating place to explore. With beautiful countryside, rugged rocky coastlines and fine sandy beaches, its varied terrain and mild climate makes it an ideal destination for lovers of the great outdoors.
There are a number of different ways for you to explore the vibrant greenery, local wildlife and heritage attractions on the Isle of Man.
The Isle of Man Steam Railway is the longest narrow gauge steam line in Britain that still uses its original locomotives and carriages. Here you can experience the grandeur of travelling between Douglas and the south of the Island on a traditional Victorian railway. Many of the Island’s heritage attractions are located near to railway stations making it a convenient way to travel.
If you want to see a different part of the Island, the Manx Electric Railway connects Douglas with Laxey and Ramsey. The 17-mile railway will provide plenty of sightseeing opportunities with the beautiful Manx countryside on one side and far-reaching views out to sea on the other.
Another wonderful way to see the Island’s stunning coastline is to take an organised boat trip which gives you the chance to see some of the local marine wildlife, such as basking sharks, dolphins and seals.
For those interested in the Island’s wildlife, but wanting to stay on land, a visit to The Sound and Ayres Visitor Centre are a must!
If you fancy something a little bit different, why not take a ride on a Segway and take in the sights at your own pace? For those feeling a little more adventurous, you can experience an off-road Segway Safari which takes you inside one of the Island’s beautiful glens.
And if you’re a fan of the famous Isle of Man TT Races, a Trike Tour around the course offers visitors an exciting opportunity to cover the Island on three-wheels.
