"If you want to get the full Scottish experience, meet incredible people from around the world and have the best guides you should totally book with these guys. I did the 10 day tour and had a blast and ended up feeling Scottish."
HOGMANAY AND HIGHLANDS
Meet up with your Guide and trip mates. It’s time to get the Hogmanay festivities started and perhaps sample a few local beers in a couple of Edinburgh’s famous pubs.
Celebrate Aussie and Kiwi New Year in the local pub and prepare yourself for the main event. Tonight’s the night for the world famous Hogmanay Street Party, with plenty of dancing, music and fireworks.
Isle of Skye
Today we explore the magical isle of Skye and its heart-stopping scenery. Your Guide will recount Celtic myths and Viking legends from the past millennia and share the history of the legendary Clans who used to rule Skye before we travel to Loch Ness where we stay for the night.
We follow the entire length of Loch Ness searching for a glimpse of the legendary monster before turning south to make our way back to Edinburgh. After these epic three days, you’ll have fallen in love with Scotland and become part of our HAGGiS clan.
Torchlight Procession - Torch
Only available at the time of booking Join 50,000 spectators and participants at the official opening of Edinburgh's Hogmanay celebrations. Being at the heart of the procession and carrying your own flaming torch gives a unique perspective and should not be missed. The number of torches is limited and they always sell out so add to your booking to avoid disappointment.
Loony Dook - Swimming
Only available at the time of booking. What better way to bring in the New Year than jumping into the freezing waters of the Firth of Forth. The Loony Dook is always a sell-out but you can guarantee your space by adding the swim ticket and transfer to your booking. PLEASE NOTE: If you have purchased a 'Swim' you should ensure you also have a Transfer to South Queensferry.
In 2011 HAGGiS Adventures teamed up with 'Trees for Life', a Scottish charity specifically dedicated to restoring 1,000 square miles of self-sustaining, wild, Caledonian Forest with the aim of helping Scotland 'Stay Wild'. We have pioneered an Eco Scheme where you can make an optional £2 donation when booking any tour. We will match every pound you donate, with proceeds going to the Trees for Life.
