Scotland remains one of the world’s top destinations for its natural beauty, significant wildlife and rich cultural history. Natural Habitat Adventures celebrates all that Scotland has to offer with its new 2017 itinerary that immerses guests in the wildlife of the Highlands and Hebrides.
The new 2017 itinerary will begin and end in Inverness, which avoids lengthy cross-country road trips, allowing travelers to spend more time in the Scottish wilds.
The new itinerary features a small-group, nine-day exploration that allows travelers to encounter wildlife in Scotland’s dramatic natural settings, including rugged coasts, heather-clad mountains, moors, ancient forests and expansive lochs.
The tour takes 11 people on private boat trips, where travelers will see pods of bottlenose dolphins, Harbor porpoises, gray seals and minke whales. Drives through the northern Highlands reveals Red Deer and nesting gold eagles. An excursion to the Island of Hanada in the Inner Hebrides allows for extraordinary bird watching. The island features a diverse landscape of mountains, moorlands, crofts, lochs, sandy beaches and low-lying grassy meadows, as well as ancient cultural sites, such as the Neolithic ring of Callanish Standing Stones.
Tour guests will have the opportunity to converse with Scottish author and naturalist Sir John Lister-Kaye and enjoy a guided forest walk. Each day, guests will stay at distinctive small-scale accommodations offering a comfortable authentic atmosphere including a night in a castle-like setting and dining in a baronial hall.
Natural Habitat Adventures is an industry leader in adventure travel and nature-based ecotourism. The small-group tours offer exceptional exclusive tours. Departures for the 2017 Scotland itinerary are scheduled for May 14, June 11 and July 10, 2017. Tours start at a per person rate of $7,496.
