Bronze Award

Achill OEC offers challenging routes  for fulfilling the requirements of the Award.

A route may consist of lowland hillwalking through spectacular terrain mixed with paddling on large lake and an overnight camp at small mountain corrie lake or, weather permitting, participants can paddle on inshore coastal areas, camp overnight by the shore and continue the journey by sea the next day.

Silver Award

Again similar to the above but more time and distance spent at sea or in the mountains with two overnight camps either by shore or in remote mountain areas.
