Journey Based Programmes

Sutherland open canoe and ecology journey

Ecology, environment and nature-based activities underpin and are integrated throughout the programme with an ecologist supporting and sharing knowledge (an incredible amount of knowledge and experience) throughout the expedition. Flora, fauna and bird identification, small mammal camera traps, habitat surveying, re-wilding impact, deer management and so much more…. Delivered over four days and three nights the programme includes travelling by open canoe, an opportunity to ascend a nearby mountain peak, cooking and living in a remote environment. The significance of nature and our place within the natural world is central to our philosophy, through a journey based progamme we can take everything that we need with us to avoid having to use shops or facilities; by doing this we remain as independent as possible throughout and maximize the ’emersion into nature’ experience.

Example Itinerary:
Day 1 –Meet in Elphin where the open canoe expedition begins, paddle into Loch Veyatie for our first overnight camp.

Day 2- Our journey continues up Loch Veyatie and into Fionn Loch, this has some of the most spectacular views of Suilven, one of Scotland’s most recognisable mountains which we will have the opportunity to ascend… Return to our camp for the evening.

Day 3 – Canoeing Fionn Loch to Loch Sionascaig. Today we will learn the art of portaging! We will portage across to Loch Sionascaig and head for our wilderness campsite enjoying a well-earned rest and evening at our camp in the heart of the Inverpolly Nature Reserve.
