Isle of Skye - Land and Cruise Adventure

Mix 3 nights at the luxury Sonas Collection of hotels on the Isle of Skye including SKYEFARI 4x4 Wildlife Tours each day, with a 3-night mini cruise to see the island & wildlife aboard the Hjalmar Bjørge from a whole new angle. Eagles, otters, etc.

Dates: 25th September to 1st October 2023

Experience the majestic Isle of Skye like no-one else and enjoy a unique adventure that mixes 3 nights in luxury hotels with a 3-night cruise for a true land and sea adventure.

That's not all - also included are SKYEFARI 4x4 wildlife tours around the island with our very experienced guide to seek out what we call the 'Skye Five' of golden and white-tailed eagles, otters, deer and seals, plus of course all the other wildlife that calls the island and it's surrounding waters home, which might even include whales and dolphins.

This is the inaugural sailing of this unique new adventure that we are running in partnership with the Sonas Hotel Collection on Skye, and all bookings for this will be via our travel agent partner at Sprit Journeys in Inverness.

There will only be the one sailing this year which we expect to be popular so please don't delay and book now if you wish to join us.
