Location of Adventure
Scotland
Group Size Limit
Approximately 11 Travelers
A very important feature of our trips is the limited group size, as nature expeditions are best experienced with smaller numbers of travelers, to enhance the intimacy of the experience and reduce impact on the environment.
Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers
Our Private Leaders
Included
Accommodations, transportation within the itinerary, meals from dinner on Day 1 to lunch on final day, bottled water and soft drinks, services of NHA Expedition Leaders and local guides, some gratuities, permits and entrance fees, all taxes.
Not Included
Travel to and from start and end point of trip, alcoholic beverages, some gratuities, passport and visa fees, optional activities, items of a personal nature (phone calls, souvenirs, etc.), airline baggage fees, airport and departure taxes, optional travel insurance.
Physical Requirements
Moderate
While this adventure does not require a high degree of physical fitness, days are very long and on occasion, somewhat strenuous conditions may be involved. Most days include significant time in a vehicle, and drives are often over winding roads through hilly or mountainous terrain. To enjoy all activities, guests should be able to comfortably walk up to one mile over uneven, often slippery, terrain. A number of walks are included throughout the itinerary, typically about a mile in length, and many take place on rough, rocky ground with significant exposure to the weather, and sometimes near deep water. Several boat trips are included, and while we generally spend time in more sheltered waters, travelers prone to seasickness should take this into consideration and come prepared with medication. It is possible to remain at our hotel on the Isle of Harris if a guest does not wish to participate in the Isle of Lewis wildlife cruise, though it's definitely one of the high points of the entire trip. For guests who desire more physical activity, additional early-morning walks are sometimes offered by our guides. 
Important Information About This Trip
Our Scotland journey is different from the rest, deliberately taking you away from more crowded areas and into the traditional, wilder locales that unveil Scotland's rich natural and cultural history. Accordingly, we stay in authentic, smaller-scale accommodations in less-traveled locations. While they are very comfortable, rooms are often slightly less spacious than those typically found in North America. But whatever we may forsake in space, we more than make up for in setting, surrounded by nature amidst Scotland’s most awe-inspiring sights. Please be prepared to spend time outdoors in unpredictable weather, which may include heavy rain and wind — or perfect sunshine.
Mandatory Insurance
Getting There & Getting Home
Arrive in Edinburgh by 6 pm on Day 1 for a welcome dinner. For those travelers who wish to participate in an optional private guided tour of Edinburgh Castle, plan to arrive in Edinburgh no later than 12:30 pm on Day 1. You may depart Edinburgh anytime after 6 pm on the final day. We are prepared to handle all your round-trip travel arrangements. We can serve you best if Natural Habitat Adventures’ Travel Desk makes your reservations, as our staff is intimately familiar with the special requirements of this program and can make the most efficient arrangements.
