Adventure and Activity Holidays

At Wilderness Scotland, we offer a concise selection of guide-led wilderness holidays and wilderness travel experiences. Our aim is to share with you our passion for exploring the last remaining wild places of our planet - and to take you there.

Many of our wilderness adventure holidays are led by UK-qualifed wilderness guides working alongside our local guides. We are happy to apply our expertise to create bespoke adventures, so many of our clients benefit from private departures.
