Our Flagship Custom Tour

"Get ready to immerse yourself in the most adventurous riding and diverse terrain on the planet!"

Big Mountain Safari™

All-mountain backcountry sojourn

On one of our flagship custom bike tours we’ll create your ultimate mountain bike, gravel or bikepacking holiday in Scotland.

Guided or self-guided bike adventures – the choice is yours – on one of our custom bike tours you can tap into a wealth of experience to create an adventure that’s truly unique. On one of these epic journeys through Scotland, you have lots of flexibility:

  • The ‘Works’ (Guided and fully supported). Enjoy the most relaxed or adventurous riding in the most varied locations across Scotland with one of our expert guides
  • ROAM (we supply the full package except for a guide)
  • DRIFT (we supply the itinerary; you do the rest)

The Trips

Tailored for you from a short break mountain, gravel or bikepacking weekend, through to as long as you desire – you can ride through the most iconic of Scottish landscapes from the Scottish Borders, Cairngorms, Glencoe and Ft William to Knoydart, the Isle of Skye and Torridon and more.

Depending on your tastes and budget, here’s some of the ingredients we can mix to make your ultimate bike adventure in Scotland.

On the big one, you’ll take six individual boat trips, spend a day riding off the gondola in Fort William, sample the finest ales and whiskies in the UK’s best inns and pubs, eat the freshest produce and enjoy the warmest hospitality anywhere, and of course ride beautiful natural trails under some of the most breathtaking mountain tops in Scotland.

Scotland can be a wild place. A place of big mountains, rock faces, boulder strewn trails and some of the best wild riding imaginable. IMBA didn’t give Scotland global superstar status for nothing and on this voyage of discovery you’ll soon find out why! Accessing this remote back country can be a daunting prospect yet it can be the most inspirational and exciting riding terrain there is. It can be a mountain biking adventure that takes you one step at a time until you reach the final, ultimate and iconic routes of Scotland.
