Disembarking on a small boat on a solitary coast is the essence of expedition travelling.  No port, no houses and perhaps no vehicles. Only raw nature, infinite landscapes, and untamed wildlife. No filters of any kind. The real pleasure of exploring the environment with the open mind of the pioneers, of discovering the world as it used to be. 

From Loch Scavaig, discover the wild and beautiful shores at the south of the Isle of Skye. Embark our expedition boats to cruise across the waters of the Loch, watching the surrounding hills and mountains of the Cullians rise to meet you. Seabirds and seals may be spotted in these waters and along the shoreline, so be sure to bring your binoculars. Make a nature landing on this seldom visited coast, and make your way inland to visit Loch Coruisk, one of the island’s best kept and most spectacular secrets. Hike to the shores of the lake, and admire the picturesque scenery that inspired Turner to immortalise this remote Loch on canvas. 

At Hurtigruten we have the best team of guides and naturalists, the highest safety measures and the strictest environmental protocols to protect the land whilst ensuring an unforgettable experience.
