Mountain biking, canoeing, wildlife spotting, whisky tasting, and the Highland Fling… All part of an unforgettable mountain bike adventure in Scotland this summer!
From July 13th – 20th join us for our mountain bike adventure in the Cairngorms National Park, in the very heart of the Scottish Highlands, then end your holiday with a trip to the Inverness Highland Games on Saturday July 20th to round off the perfect “Highland Fling” adventure!
The Cairngorms is the largest National Park in the UK, boasting a huge diversity of landscapes, wildlife, eco-systems, communities, views, and – incorporating the Speyside Whisky Trail – includes the largest concentration of distilleries in Scotland. And in 2013 the Cairngorms National Park celebrates its 10th anniversary, so there’s no better time to come and explore the UK’s biggest natural playground!
On our Cairngorms mountain bike adventure in Scotland this July you’ll enjoy the unspoilt, natural beauty of the Scottish Highlands and discover why, in 2012, National Geographic Magazine voted the Cairngorms National Park as one of the Top 50 ‘Last Great Places’. We’ll show you some fantastic hidden mountain bike trails that weave through ancient, silent pine forests, then suddenly open out to a glorious mountain panorama. We’ll take you on a guided canoe ride on the magnificent River Spey, then to a whisky distillery to taste the liquid gold produced from the clean, fresh waters of the Spey.
You’ll have a half-day, guided wildlife walk, where our local expert will help you to spot some of the more elusive native species that make the Cairngorms such an important natural habitat.
After all this activity you’ll return to your warm, comfortable Highland lodge base in Aviemore to relax with your group, before heading out for a delicious meal in one of the local restaurants or pubs. Alternatively, you could choose to stock up on local produce and create your own culinary masterpiece in your Highland home-from-home!
