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

Mountain biking holidays offer unique opportunities to really explore deep into areas that are rarely visited, on incredible trails that are rarely ridden.

Our mountain bike tours in Scotland are some of the most iconic in Europe. Our Coast to Coast tour follows a unique route that we have spent 18 years refining so that you have the best possible experience. The Hebridean Trail winds it’s way through 7 beautiful islands and into some really wild places in Harris and Lewis.

Along the way, you’ll stay in carefully selected guest houses and small hotels, so you can ride during the day and relax in the evenings.

Our expert guides hold the respected Mountain Bike Leader qualification. With years of experience, they also know the backcountry trails in Scotland better than anyone. Many of our trips are point to point rides – our support vehicle transfers your luggage and offers a lift if you legs are tiring!

Mountain Biking tours are available in the following locations:

Mountain Biking - The Hebridean Trail
Overall it was great. Never expected to see the some of the sights we saw. The weather certainly helped. It was a nice mix of terrain for biking within my capability. Thanks.

Outstanding Customer Service

Mountain Biking Holidays

*

As a 5 Star tour operator this is how we see customer service.

For example, we can’t say we will get back to you within 3 hours because sometimes we won’t and we can’t say we endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible, because that’s just wishy washy and everyone says that.

Great customer service isn’t tangible.

It’s tone of voice, and relationship building.

And going that wee bit further to make someone’s day and it can’t be quantified.

It’s how we make you feel…

and we feel that it’s the following things that go towards making the difference between a holiday, and an amazing, memorable experience.

Our Network
We have fantastic relationships and in many cases personal friendships with our trusted team of suppliers.
A Growing Team
Our team of 35 travel professionals in the office and over 60+ expert guides mean we're small enough to care about every detail but big enough to deal with any curveballs, meaning your holiday experience will be seamless.
We Know Scotland
Being outdoors people, we have an unrivalled depth and breadth of knowledge when it comes to Scotland's wild places. We've been there and can recommend locations and activities from our own experience.

Our holidays reviewed in your words

The Wilderness Scotland Coast to Coast Mountain Bike trip was thoroughly enjoyable. It was challenging but quite achievable within a great group of participants with effective and yet friendly guides. I hope to get back for another trip.

5The Bottom Line

The great thing about these trips is how a group of strangers can be put through an amazing experience like this and finish six days later as friends. Add in the best scenery Scotland can offer, together with excellent support from professional guides and the result is an unforgettable trip. Can't wait to do the next one.

5The Bottom Line

My first thoughts were it was expensive but I soon realised with all the different modes of travelling and quality of the hotels it was worth every penny. What an amazing place the Outer Hebrides is, it truly is quite remote. (let’s not tell too many people it may get crowded)

5The Bottom Line

I would be delighted to help you as a reference.
When that is said, the trips are very much depended on the guides.
Also nice to have a Scottish guide, have learned about the Hamilton Weather Window.
Jon was also good at some local/cultural information.
Please give him the best regards from the Norwegian delegation
