Who we are

The Ulster Federation of Rambling Clubs is a charitable body (ref number 101199) and is the governing body for recreational walking in the North of Ireland. The Federation has around 35 member clubs, with over 2,000 members, whose interests encompass all forms of recreational walking ranging from energetic mountain trekking to casual rambling.

Although our primary objective is to support our affiliated clubs, the Federation also promotes the interests of club members by building links to like-minded organisations; advocating the economic benefits of walking tourism, and encouraging an appreciation and respect for the countryside.
