      Into the Wild

      Starting in 2019, we’ve decided to introduce an assortment of exciting, fully-guided women-only departures to create a space to enjoy the great outdoors whatever your motivations for travelling. Recognised as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces for Women, Wilderness Scotland’s new trips have been devised to be even more inclusive to women who want to adventure in the wilderness.

      These holidays for women share all the hallmarks of a Wilderness Scotland trip, such as expert guiding, characterful accommodation, unique experiences and inspirational itineraries. Our women-only trips are designed to encourage more women to explore the wilds of off-the-beaten-path Scotland. Travel with like-minded women and see some of Scotland’s most interesting landscapes in a relaxed and inclusive environment.

      Far from excluding people, these women-only trips have been created to include and encourage more women to build adventure confidence and partake in outdoor activities such as cycling, walking and kayaking – activities that have long been male-dominated.

      Whether you want to reduce competitiveness, feel confident at trying a new activity, take pride in your own abilities, avoid feeling self-conscious or simply become a part of the wilderness women community, these women-only trips will open up the wilderness to more women to travel the wilds of Scotland in a relaxed and welcoming environment.

      Who Are These Trips For?

      Our women-only departures have been set aside specifically for women adventurers. Whether you’re a female solo traveller, a group of friends travelling together, planning a mother-daughter getaway or a sisters trip, Wilderness Scotland’s women-only travel is perfect for you!

      Open to all ages and backgrounds, these trips are ideal for any and all women who like exploring the outdoors with small groups of like-minded women.

      Women in the Wild

      New film series, Women in the Wild is about inspiring women who love the outdoors. This first episode is about our colleague Alice. She swims. In very cold water. Without a wetsuit. She’s not mad but just loves the way it makes her feel. This series is to celebrate our launch of Women Only adventure holidays.

      Our holidays reviewed
      in your own words

      I seldom wax lyrical about travel companies, however I have nothing but praise for Wilderness Scotland. Your business model clearly works supplemented by that essential ingredient: charming, efficient and professional staff. I really enjoyed my week with you and would hope to come again !
