7-Day Tour to explore Shetlans Island

A UNESCO Global Geopark, the geology of Shetland gives rise to a unique habitat for wildlife – from the eclectic birdlife that nest on the plunging cliffs to the otters, seals, and dolphins that play in the salty waves. In the company of your highly knowledgeable guide, gain a privileged insight into the culture, heritage and biodiversity of this beautiful place. With a human history that stretches back over 500o years, explore ruined forts, ancient houses and standing stones. Hike out to the island’s wildest, most dramatic corners and stroll along quiet, sandy beaches that stretch out brightly beneath the sky. If you’re familiar with the gripping TV crime drama ‘Shetland’, which grew out of Ann Cleeves’ award-winning detective novels, then you’ll be gifted with many recognisable backdrops – from machair fringed dunes to the sandstone houses of Lerwick. Enjoy every day – soaking up the tranquillity of nature while learning about the island’s fascinating ecology. As the sun sinks below the horizon, relax in hand-picked accommodation, enjoying delicious food and lovely company.
