Day Tours

We offer a wide range of day tours for visitors looking to experience the very best of Shetland’s wildlife, natural beauty and cultural heritage for a day. Our growing team of resident tour leaders ensure we continue to deliver the high standard of visitor experience for which we are renowned, as rated with a ‘Certificate of Excellence on TripAdvisor’ and with a ‘Five Star Wildlife Experience’ with Visit Scotland.

Our tour program offers something for everyone. Whether you wish to spend a day enjoying the best that Shetland Mainland has to offer; search for and learn about Shetland’s captivating wild otters or experience the wildlife, sights and charms of the Northern Isles of Fetlar, Yell or Unst.

Many of our trips run at least once a week through the spring and summer, but there is often the option to add in additional dates. Please contact us to find out what tours are available for you to join during your stay or to book your own tour. New for 2024 is the option of a mainland pick-up during the spring and summer for several of our most popular tours to suit those holidaying without a vehicle.

To facilitate the growing trend of visiting Cruise Ships we also have tour options specifically designed to suit the arrival and departure schedules of the many ships that now visit each season. These are run on demand so do contact us to find out the options for the day you are visiting.
