On the majority of our itineraries your accommodation is divided into three locations/establishments. This ensures we provide a fuller flavour of the islands, their renowned charms and hospitality whilst also ensure we are based in the best and most suitable locations for wildlife. This also reduces travel throughout the itinerary so making sure you have more time at the best locations.
In South Mainland, where our itineraries generally begin we use the idyllically situated Sumburgh Hotel, which is just five minutes from the airport – Sumburgh, Shetland ZE2 9JN. Telephone 01950 460201. All rooms include TV, tea and coffee making facilities, dresser, armchairs and hair dryer. There is free access to Wi-Fi facilities.

In Shetland’s North Mainland we use the St Magnus Bay Hotel. The perfect base to explore, enjoy and make the most of this beautiful and wild corner of Shetland. Telephone: 01806 503372
On Unst we use the Saxa Vord Resort. Here you can look forward to a slightly different accommodation experience to other venues we use. Staying in spacious and modern self catered houses you can enjoy the creature comforts of home but with the full board basis in the renowned restaurant and bar facility which are just next door. These houses are three bedroomed with shared facilities however we generally tend to have only two to three guests per house (depending on group size/dynamics).
