Book your activity holiday with Europe's No.1 Adventure Travel Company - Wilderness Scotland

Our family adventure holidays in Scotland are designed to be enjoyed by grown ups as well as the children!

Safety comes first so all of our family adventure holidays are led by fully qualified and experienced guides.

The activities are pitched at an introductory level, so no previous experience is required. You just need to be willing to give the activities a shot!

Our small group holidays are great for small families and those who enjoy mixing with other families on their holiday. We recommend that your children are aged around 9-15 years old for these trips. As well as guided activities, we also build in some free time for you can spend as you please.

If you prefer to travel with just your family, or with friends, that’s a great option too. You can book any of our family adventure holidays privately (prices may vary depending on group size). We also have trips specially designed for private family groups. Some of our self guided trips are perfect for families and, of course, we offer a tailor made service.

The Great Family Adventure - Treasure Highlands
The Treasure Highland excursion is definitely perfect for families and groups. The concept of receiving a clue each day to find the treasure at the end was very fun for our group, especially the 9 & 16 yo children.
