Scottish Wildlife Holidays

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

Discover Scotland’s native wildlife as you explore the dramatic beauty of its natural habitat.

Our wildlife holidays are a little bit different from others you may have seen or joined. While we do spend some time in hides or in vehicles, our trips are more active than a ‘normal’ wildlife holiday.

The activities are easy and gentle but you can expect to experience delights such as coastal walks, sea kayaking with seals and boats trips to seek our Scotland’s larger marine wildlife. The vast knowledge of our expert wildlife guides will help you interpret some of the fascinating wildlife behaviours while safely enjoying Scotland’s great outdoors.

Based from comfortable and welcoming accommodation, you can relax in the evenings and look forward to each day. We hope that you can come and explore Scotland and its wildlife with us.

Trip Reviews

Customer Kudos

Every client receives a feedback survey when they return from their guided, self guided or tailor made holiday with us.

Once completed the review is published on our website just as soon as our database updates. The little touches and details are important to us and where issues are raised we make positive changes to our trips to improve your experience.

That's why we read each of our client's reviews and although we don't respond to all of them, if it's glowing feedback then we get the satisfaction of helping to make your holidays truly memorable.

Wildlife Adventures - The Shetland Isles
A really good mix of culture, wildlife and walking, with shorter walking options offered where possible. Felt very relaxed to have someone else manage the organising of the trip. May have made more sense for the guide to stay at the same hotel but there may have been reason for not (ie cost, and him needing some time off!).

Frances Burnett


Wildlife Adventures - The Shetland Isles
Every aspect of the trip was well planned for and executed. The driving was excellent, we received an amazing education about Scottish culture, geology, wildlife & history.
