Active Family Experience
The National Parks and Wildlife Service and Christmas in Killarney are excited to bring a virtual Christmas treasure trail to Killarney this year.
Wanderful Christmas is a free family digital orienteering experience. Discover markers placed around the town and National Park to meet hidden virtual Christmas characters. When all are found a screen is unlocked to receive your “Wanderful Certificate”.
Wanderful’s aim is to use technology to get children outdoors and active. This is Wanderful’s second collaboration with the National Parks. Earlier this year they launched Ciar’s Quest in Ross Island, where families can meet and learn about the hidden wildlife of The Kingdom around the National Park.
