Sample Itineraries

It all began here back in 2001 when Wilderness Scotland was incorporated and we ran our first ever trip to the most remote part of mainland Britain, Knoydart.

A lot has changed since then but Scotland’s appeal as a destination remains very high on many people’s bucket list, due to the diaspora and multitude of family connections in their spiritual homeland, or it might just be Outlander…

Whatever the motivation for travelling, Scotland provides the ideal playground for active and nature-based travel experiences; its dramatic and evocative landscape, acting as the canvas for layer upon layer of inspiring memories, etched from immersion in its iconic whisky and castles, myths and tartan tradition.

Wilderness Ireland is Wilderness Scotland’s sister company based on the elemental west coast of Ireland near Sligo.

The nation needs no introduction as it’s famous exports like St Patrick’s Day, Guinness and Game of Thrones is known worldwide. But beyond that lies an undiscovered land of adventure that we weave seamlessly into tours that have a strong narrative and play to Ireland’s strengths as a destination of folklore and farming, literature and gaelic language.

Ireland’s culture and friendly disposition lend the destination perfectly to private travel experiences and fun and enriching chance encounters with locals.

England is much more than London, the Royal family, Pride and Prejudice and Sherlock Holmes. It offers so much opportunity for exploring both the capital and beyond to regions such as the Cotswolds, Lake District and any of the 13 National Parks.

We have been operating tours in England for some of the world’s most discerning adventure tour operators and have deep knowledge within the office and guiding team of the little local experiences that differentiate your product and add wow moments for your clients.

We have been operating and running inspiring adventure holidays to Wales for a number of years now and when it comes to the ultimate UK & Ireland escape Wales makes for a wonderful compliment to its Irish and English neighbours.

Trace the footsteps of legendary kings, druids, and Norman conquerors across mystical landscapes, exploring the dramatic southwest coast and the rugged, misty mountains of the north.

In Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, follow the undulating coastal path over limestone cliffs, into fishing villages, and past some of the most beautiful beaches in the British Isles. Travel north to Snowdonia to hike the romantic mountain landscapes where many tales of King Arthur unfolded. Encounter an Iron Age hill fort and prehistoric dolmens, and venture into imposing medieval castles and abandoned slate quarries. Get acquainted with Welsh culture present and past, from the hip, modern streets of revitalized Cardiff to the timeless villages of the isolated Lleyn Peninsula, where English is a second language and age-old traditions are held fast.
