Sea Kayaking in Scotland, Canada, Croatia, Arctic Norway

Imagine kayaking along untouched coastlines, camping on remote Islands and beaches in Scotland, or the Arctic Lofoten islands or the warm waters of the Dalmatian islands of Croatia or being right there amidst the wildlife of Canada.

All of our trip descriptions on this page will hopefully give you a flavour of what is surely the most unique wilderness activity in Scotland allowing you to paddle away from it all and get closer to wildlife in a quiet, peaceful gliding kayak.

Our trips from our home base on the Applecross peninsula are designed for beginners and entry level paddlers in the most sheltered area of the North West coast of Scotland. For those of you with a  more paddle experience there are also some longer, more challenging expeditions to join in Scotland and  overseas in Croatia, Canada and Arctic Norway.

Our sea kayak experiences are particularly popular with groups of friends and families who enjoy a shared experience allowing for a great adventure holiday and quality time together. We know how expensive it is for families to share a holiday together so, if you are a family of 4 or more, we give you a 10% reduction on the prices shown here. And we never increase pricing during school holiday periods. There are also reductions for our armed forces and emergency service workers.




Some info about our trips

Our Trips are designed on the whole for beginner and intermediate paddlers and are progressive so as to allow you to develop your kayak experience with us starting with taster half days, weekend intros and beginner expedition adventure holidays leading on to intermediate Scottish and overseas expeditions. Or .. if you are attracted by our overseas trips and want to join these with minimal experience then we can achieve this for you in a double kayak allowing younger, older or less experienced beginners access to every event we run.

Most trips have price levels to suit all needs:

‘Trip Only’ - you look after your own food and accommodation except on overnight camps where we feed you as part of you trip price. The Applecross campsite is a great on this option.

‘Full Inclusive Guest House’ - just turn up and we’ll look after you entirely. Enjoy local, homemade, fresh food and the comforts of the guest house where you can discuss the day in front of the fire!

'Applecross Hartfield House Hostel' - Stay in the old hunting lodge in Applecross Glen. Shared and private rooms available as well as self cater facilities or opt in to meals.

All trip prices include your instructor/guide, equipment and local transport.

Mountain and Sea Guides ensures that all trips have no negative impact on the local environment. As well as learning to kayak we pride ourselves on providing sustainable tourism so we can maintain the beauty of the highlands, islands and all of the other areas we visit.
