This is a walking trip. Please carefully read descriptions of all the walks as you will need a good level of fitness to fully enjoy all the included hikes.
Scottish weather can surprise – in good and bad way – so be prepared for lovely sunshine but also rain, wind, and lower temperatures. Please make sure you have good walking boots, rain gear, warm clothing, and sun protection for this trip.
On day 4 we will climb Ben Nevis. While the group will be led by 2 qualified guides, it is important you are aware that the trek will take almost entire day.
This trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations and working with new partners can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
