Scotland has always inspired the spirit of adventure. Its rugged untamed landscapes, rich in history, have featured prominently in popular culture over the centuries. From the great literary works of Sir Walter Scott and Robert Louis Stevenson, to modern filming locations for Harry Potter, James Bond, and Outlander, the stunning visuals of this captivating land have to be experienced first hand to be fully appreciated. From Skye’s awe-inspiring geographical formations of Quiraing and the Old Man of Storr, to the sublime beauty of Glencoe, we’ll visit both the iconic and the hidden gems in this magnificent area of the Scottish Highlands.
From our starting point in Inverness, we’ll visit the romantic and stunning Eileen Donan Castle en route to the Isle of Skye, also called the “Magical Isle”. Impressive geological formations await us, allowing a glimpse into a forgotten time. Volcanic crags sculptured over millennia into unique shapes abound in Skye, creating many memorable features such as the dazzling turquoise waters of the elegant Fairy Pools, and the fossil-stewn shale beach of Elgol with the dramatic Cullin mountain range looming in the background.

The tour is always dependent on weather, as the Icelandic weather can indeed be highly unpredictable. Likewise, visits to ice caves are dependent on favorable conditions, and indeed the ice caves themselves are not permanent. When it comes to the Northern Lights, while they are most likely to be seen between September and April, there is no guarantee that they will appear on a given day.
