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!

Thank you to Chris and Amy for a most enjoyable adventure. We visited places that will stay in our thoughts throughout the winter months ahead. Amy's cooking was exceptional and Christophe a very informative guide and skipper. We would love to return.

      About Madventure

      Specializing in extensive overland travel and adventures.

      For any passengers under 18 (14-17) an adult should accompany them.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      Their tours are very long and definitely life changing. Groups are small, and everyone get’s involved to make it a unique and special experience. Founders, Karen Brown and William Thomson often attend the tours themselves, meaning they really know the ins and outs of what overland travel is like and requires physically and mentally. These trips can be a challenge, but they are one of the best ways to grow as a traveler and as a person.

      Who Travels With Them?

      Overland trips attracts travelers who are looking for an extended travel experience and the chance to meet and get to know their fellow travel companions on a deeper level. Overland is a community event - everyone participates in helping cook, clean, and provide general assistance. It usually involves camping for multiple nights in a row, and long bus ride days. All ages can participate, but make sure you have “roughing it” in mind.  

      Where Do They Operate?

      With trip names like “London to Sydney” and “Alaska to Panama” it’s tough to pinpoint specific countries or even continents! Their trips are long and typical visit multiple countries around the world.

      Why Travel With Them?

      Overland travel is a very unique style. If you’re interested in a community oriented travel experience, where you and everyone traveling with you are responsible for the wellbeing of everyone else, this would be perfect for you. They are experts in this kind of travel and while Overland is adventurous, it’s still important to have certain ducks in a row. They will help ensure that your journey is smooth and you are well taken care of.

      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.
