about us


With over 25 years of experience in arranging and guiding holidays in Shetland, many aspects of our business are continually evolving but one feature remains the same - our unmatched attention to our traveller's needs - the first secret of our continued growth and success.

We are winners of the Tourism and the Environment Scottish Thistle Award. The Scottish Tourist Board's 'Thistle' is firmly recognised as the country's most prestigious tourism award and the Tourism and the Environment category pays tribute to businesses that promote a better understanding of Scotland's natural heritage, while adopting environmentally friendly practices.

On winning the award, Visit Scotland said "It is a splendid achievement and richly deserved by a company which operates to the highest standards in not only giving visitors a unique insight into the wildlife of the islands but also shows a real concern for wildlife and the environment."

We are honoured to be the first Shetland business to be nominated and only the third eco-tourism operator in Scotland to win this award.

We are also rated as 'Excellent' by travellers on TripAdvisor and have been awarded Certificates of Excellence annually since we joined the platform in 2013. You can read what our travellers say about us here.

Confident that your experience of a Shetland Wildlife holiday will be a memorable one, we welcome you to share with us some of the most spectacular wildlife in Northern Europe!
