Ynys Enlli/Bardsey Island Trip

We are trying to organise a day trip to Ynys Enlli/Bardsey Island. Would you be interested?

A Bit About the Island
It is suggested the island was inhabited from as early as the bronze age. It is known as the island of 20,000 saints, owing to the Celtic and Christian monasteries established there since the 6th century. The population of Ynys Enlli, which is 1.5 miles long and no more than half a mile across, has fluctuated over the centuries. Today the permanent winter population is two but In the summer they are joined by visitors who help work the land, record the bird and wildlife and manage the 9 self catering cottages. The island is off-grid with most of the buildings unchanged since they were built in the 19th century.

Bardsey Island is the first site in Europe to receive a dark sky sanctuary certification, thanks to low light pollution and pristine night skies.

As well as puffins and seals there is plenty to explore and history to discover. Currently there are 2 sets of Adventure Labs and 2 traditional geocaches, we will also be holding an event on the island.

We will be on the island for approximately 4 hours.
You do not have to be a geocacher to join us.
