Why Sustainability Matters to Us

Green to the core

In choosing Wilderness Scotland you can be sure that you are travelling with a company that takes its commitment to sustainable tourism seriously.

We have been dedicated to operating in as sustainable a way as possible since the very beginning of our company and provide financial support to a wide range of nature conservation projects in the Highlands of Scotland.

In the video above, Myles Farnbank, Head of Training, explains some of our Sustainability vision at Wilderness Scotland after we won World’s Best Green Tour Operator at the World Travel Awards.

We continually search for new ways in which we can improve our performance, strengthening our connection to the environments, communities and economies in which we operate. For us this connection and responsibility has always been a constant and will continue to be at the very core of our business growth and decision making.

This commitment has been recognised in many awards over the years including the Best Green Tour Operator in the World Travel Awards and a Highly Commended placing in the World Responsible Tourism Awards (for details on further awards, please click here) Since 2006 we have held a Gold Award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme – recognised as the world’s most credible Sustainable Tourism Programme.

Our vision for the 21st Century is one in which tourism can play a major role in helping people to enjoy, experience and connect with the amazing natural environments in which we live. It is our hope that this connection will inspire all of us to greatly value the natural world and to embrace a more sustainable way of living.

Our holidays reviewed
in your own words

It was an experience of a lifetime. My husband had never done anything like this before and was lamenting before the trip about how he had let himself be talked into such a thing. He enjoyed it immensely, in spite of the weather conditions and being worried about my injury. We learned things about ourselves and saw a country from a very intimate perspective. We consider ourselves very lucky to have been able to walk the WHW together and would recommend Wilderness Scotland without hesitation.
