Join us on two significant swimming expeditions, as we aim to traverse all of the 13 islands that make up the length of the Scottish Outer Hebrides from Lewis in the North to Berneray in the South. The Lady of Avenel, our vessel for the entirety of the trip, is a 102ft Brigantine square rigged ship. This will be one epic cruise and an exciting platform for adventure swimming and sailing alike.
You will discover an abundance of beautiful lochs, long sandy beaches and scenic landscapes whilst 'living' on the Lady of Avenel with your very own on-board chef. Expect to see an abundance of wildlife, both in and out of the water, making this trip a nature lover’s dream!
It only leaves one question...What are you waiting for?
This trip is made up largely of crossings and some coastal swims. Conditions will be challenging, yet extremely rewarding. A good experience of swimming in challenging sea conditions is a must for this trip. Due to the nature of this trip and the length of our swims, there is a minimum swimming speed of 24min/km (38min/mile).
Great scenery, clear water, all in the company of like-minded swimmers. Swam with dolphins and seals and had a great time. Unforgettable.
The Outer Hebrides trip is a wild swimming paradise.
An amazing experience with friendly people, expert crew, and guides that helped and encouraged me. An adventure: challenging and safe.
Swimming every day in pristine water, at magical locations, with like minded companions. How could it be better?
It was a fantastic experience to be aboard a magnificent ship, to swim in pristine waters surrounded by wildlife.
Definitely an "off grid holiday" . Swimming the Hebrides was stunning, on the ocean, at the edge of the world.
I can't do justice to the experience I have had in words. Utterly fantastically amazingly wonderfully excitingly thrillingly magnificent is getting close though..
A completely wild and adventurous trip - a complete one off and a huge traveling and swimming highlight! So many thanks to all the wonderful staff who made it possible!
Sharing our swims with dolphins and seals - and no other humans in sight except us Swimtrekkers!! Open water swimming at it's absolute best!!
