Holiday Information

We’re excited to offer this extraordinary chance to explore these unique islands by bike, travelling through one of Europe’s last true wilderness regions, the Outer Hebrides, a superb location for a mountain bike holiday in the UK.
Crowned the 'Hebridean Explorer', this 280km bike journey weaves its way through seven islands on a variety of ancient paths, historic by-ways, mountain tracks and impossibly quiet roads. While there is the occasional intermediate level trail, the riding is not overly challenging, allowing us to relax and enjoy the superb wilderness scenery. Island hopping means that we will be using a combination of ferry trips and exciting boat rides to link up the paths we have discovered across this diverse archipelago.
More than any other bike ride, the Hebridean Explorer offers the opportunity to experience life on the islands, where the landscapes are wild and untamed, golden eagles and red deer roam free, and human history dates back over 5000 years.
The Outer Hebrides also retain a culture distinct from the rest of Scotland. Here you will find Gaelic as the first language and a sense of pride and tradition which make the Outer Hebrides a remarkable and unforgettable place to visit.
