Hiked Cape Breton Island for 7 days with 14 people of varying abilities. They made it work to everyone's delight! The food was excellent as well as the accommodations. At lunch break on a longer hike they pulled out hot coffee and tea served in ceramic cups. I have hiked with other companies but found Freewheeling the best value...and the...

We joined Freewheeling for a guided cycling trip around the Cabot trail, plus some sea kayaking and bike rental in our second week, with our 12yr old boys. We could not have been looked after any better. From our initial contact, to advice on what to see and do in Nova Scotia and the trips themselves, everything was superb.

Just got back from our Mull Odyssey cruise. An amazing, truly special holiday. So many highlights to pick from but the amazing columnar basalt rock formations on Staffa; Lochbuie Standing Stone Circle; dolphins bow riding; huge jellyfish; 'helping' crew the ship; Tobermory; sunsets & rainbows; Iona and the fabulous scenery are a good start. Special thanks to Christophe and Amy for going above and beyond being the crew. I cannot recommend this fabulous trip and company enough!

St Hilda - a little gem of a sailboat - great holiday. Excellent crew - thanks to skipper Christophe and cook Kerry . Arnamurchan distillery - fascinating tour - a real find. Loved the island of Egg - hike to Kildonan followed by fresh mussels and chips at the pub in the sun - bliss! And then she sped, bonnie boat, over the sea to Skye.

Wonderful, memorable cruise of the Inner Hebrides. The staff was far above any expectations I may have had. Great communication and assistance with the office prior to the trip. The crew on board took wonderful care of us, and were always responsive to our needs and preferences. Seamanship was clearly superior. Food was outstanding!! The ship is small enough that you really get a sense of being on the water and in the islands. It is also large enough to have resources and comforts. I am happy to recommend it.

          About Freewheeling Adventures

          Freewheeling Adventure is a travel operator designed for cyclists. Some Freewheeling Adventures are designed for expert cyclists and include long distances, steep terrain, and daily challenges. Others are designed to accommodate relaxed riders, or groups with varying desires. To help you choose which trips are right for you, please take note of the difficulty levels that are available for each trip. If you want greater independence to cover the routes at your own pace, choose a self-guided trip and enjoy the privacy and intimacy of traveling by yourselves. You will have a driver to move your luggage, and can include one “boost” per day when your luggage is moved.

          About St Hilda Sea Adventures

          St. Hilda Sea Adventures provide the unique experience to see Scotland from the sea. They offer many activities and private excursions - a perfect travel experience for families, older travellers, and small multi-gen groups.

          What Makes Them Stand Out?

          Taking only up to 11 guests (6 on St Hilda and 11 on Seahorse II), their tours are incredibly unique, as you cruise aboard a classic ex-tall ship (St Hilda) or a proper small ship (Seahorse II). Activities include sailing, swimming, sea kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, rock pooling, and lobster potting. Or, you can simply choose to just relax and watch the spectacular wildlife and scenery float by.

          Who Travels With Them?

          All ages and all types enjoy traveling with St. Hilda Sea Adventures. Families, couples, and solo passengers are all welcome. Passengers can choose to do as much or as little as they like. This is a great trip for young kids to enjoy as well, for the thrill of hoisting the sails like a true sailor.

          Where Do They Operate?

          The West Coast of Scotland is where they specialize, the Outer and Inner Hebrides specifically. Such a niche focus is a huge positive for those interested in getting a unique view of this part of the world.

          Why Travel With Them?

          Their Scottish cruises give you the opportunity to see extraordinary wildlife and to cruise aboard a small ship with skipper and chef and a small group of passengers. All food is included, and there are many opportunities for interesting excursions. Some excursions are included in the price however, you can also arrange excursions based on your interests. These are not included but allow for a wonderful amount of personalization to your travel experience with St. Hilda Sea Adventures.
