    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 with the kind of solidarity, ease and atmosphere that you perhaps wouldn’t get in a mixed group.

    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

    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.

    Ghillie Basan is an award-winning cook and author living in a very wild spot in the Cairngorms National Park, Scottish Highlands.  Growing up in Africa and travelling widely in younger years has given Ghillie’s cooking a taste of the exotic, combined with the best in local Scottish ingredients.

    Meet Elise, the woman recreating the journeys of history’s forgotten female explorers.

    Five years ago, Jenny Graham had never done any competitive cycling. Since 2018, Jenny holds the world record for the fastest woman to cycle around the world unsupported.

    Our holidays reviewed
    in your own words

    Wilderness Scotland provided a world class walking vacation. It was a wonderful combination of location and attention to details. Remember the Orkneys have been populated since neolithic times. There was a reason! It is a land of incredible beauty. However a trip is not just about the location. Wilderness Scotland handled all the travel details without flaw. We were met on time, made all of our travel connections and had our many special requests all graciously honoured.
