Looking for suggestions on backpacking/nightlife in Ireland/Scotland/Norway

Jump to last reply

Firstly, thank you for your interest/help in this topic! My brother and I are starting to plan a 2 month trip for 2016. Ideally we would spend ~80% of the trip backpacking and ~20% of the trip enjoying pubs, great eats and live music. We would like to spend time in Ireland, Scotland and possibly Norway but are open to suggestions for different countries than we elected.

A bit about us to help suggestions: We are both in our early 30's. Both kayak in the Gulf of Mexico (Brother is an avid kayak fisherman). We are building up our backpacking length (currently at 1 week on the trail per trip). Although we live in Texas we were born and raised in Minnesota so we no how to handle ourselves in both cold and hot conditions. Brother has not been to Europe while I have spent a month in Carraroe, Ireland studying Gaelic (1 day off per week permitted day excursions only-Galway was Awesome).

Any advice on hiking trails to check out, cities/villages that would offer great music, and/or transportation suggestions for bouncing from one destination to the next would be greatly appreciated. It would be cool to get a water based adventure in the mix. We wouldn't be opposed to experience one trail that has a duration of a month and incorporate little trips before or thereafter.

Thank you!
