The TrekTipi Hebridean Adventure

The TrekTipi Hebridean Adventure

Our brand new adventure for 2016 takes you to one of the UK's last true wilderness areas and is an experience like no other!

Taking place over 3 days and 3 nights you will experience the wonder of nature in its purest form.

The Isles of Harris and Lewis (actually one single land mass) form part of the Island group known as The Outer Hebrides and lie off of the North Western coast of Scotland. From stunning rock formations formed by the glacial movements of the Ice Age, to the most unspoilt white sandy beaches in the British Isles, Harris will stay in your heart for always. Simply put, it is one of the most stunning areas of the British Isles.

And you could be coming with us!

Who can enjoy the Hebridean Adventure?

The Hebridean Adventure can be enjoyed by anybody aged 15 or over that has a reasonable level of fitness (those between 15 - 18 must be accompanied by an adult) You don't need to be an outdoors freak to come and join us but if you haven't slept in a tent before then we would recommend you do so for a couple of nights before hand, just so you know what to expect when we arrive in the Hebrides.

 

Getting There:

By far the easiest (and quickest!) way to get to the island is by air and regular flights from Glasgow or Inverness will take you directly to Stornoway. This is what we recommend. Here, you'll be met by our guides with the minibus, who will then take care of all of your travel whilst on the island. They will also drop you back off at Stornoway airfield for your journey home.

 

Here's what you can expect:

Upon meeting our guides at Stornoway, your adventure begins immediately. Within minutes of leaving Stornoway you will be driven through the spectacular scenery of the Isle of Lewis, southbound to it's neighbouring island, and your home for the weekend, the Isle of Harris.

It's around an hour's drive to our wild camping site, which lies in amongst 200 acres of complete wilderness. Only accessible by foot, and on private land, it is totally cut off from the outside world and the only visitors you'll get will be the family of otters that live around the loch!
Yes, there are 2 lochs at the site, in fact your teepees will be pitched on the outcrop of land that separates them. Both of them are full of Brown Trout and rods will be available for you.

 

Over the next 3 days your adventure will include:

       Trekking in the amazing hills of the Isle of Harris

       Swimming in the Lochs (for the brave ones!)

       Walking the amazing peninsula of Northton Machair

       Sea fishing out on the ocean for your supper

       Star gazing like you've never seen before - last time they even switched the Northern Lights on!

       Visiting the iconic Stones of Callanish - Harris' Stonehenge

       Some of the freshest wild food available.

 

Some of the amazing wildlife we hope to see:

   Golden Eagles

   Seals
