Woo Hoo! National Geographic include us in Top 50 Tours of a Lifetime!

Posted on Apr 10, 2014 by Rupert Shanks

As one of the most respected global brands working in Adventure travel, National Geographic’s annual 50 Trips of a Lifetime always create a stir throughout the adventure travel world. These trips are sourced from the most inspiring, sustainable and best-guided tours on the planet. We are ecstatic to announce that our “Wilderness Walking: : The Outer Hebrides and Skye” trip has been included for 2014.

This is one of our oldest and most iconic adventures which takes our guests to some of our favourite wild places to soak up ancient culture, dramatic scenery, wildlife and warm local hospitality.

National Geographic explain the process:

“The selection process was competitive and our editorial team worked long and hard to find 2014’s most authentic, most innovative, most immersive, best-guided, and most sustainable tours. “This year marks the 30th anniversary of National Geographic Traveler, which has always looked at the world through the lens of culture, nature, and history. The tours we selected go beyond destination to add meaning and context,” said Norie Quintos, executive editor of National Geographic Traveler magazine. “They open the mind to new possibilities, new connections, new ways of thinking—all critically important given the world’s complex issues.”

National Geographic Traveler magazine surfaces the best tours and outfitters for travellers as part of the magazine’s mission “to propel readers out of their armchairs and into the field.” National Geographic Traveler has the largest audience of any travel magazine, with more than 8.5 million readers. Our readers love to travel, with the highest passport ownership, most international and domestic trips, and most outdoor recreation spending of any other travel title.”

Wilderness Scotland Managing Director, Paul Easto shares his excitement about the news:

“The whole team at Wilderness Scotland is delighted to have received another incredible accolade from National Geographic Traveller. We have been running trips in the Outer Hebrides and Skye for more than a decade and have always believed the islands to be truly special – a place which every traveller should experience at least once. To have our signature walking trip to the islands recognised as a Trip of a Lifetime is a great testament and we’re now even more excited to welcome our first clients in 2014.”
