Discover the World is launching a dedicated travel programme to the UK in partnership with award-winning active and nature-based tour operator Wilderness Scotland to offer a choice of self-drive, walking, cycling, kayaking and wildlife adventures to Scotland and northern England.

The trips can all be tailormade for independent, private travel and there are also a number of small group trips of just eight people on offer, including photography experiences, taking in the most remote and beautiful regions of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.

“We felt it was the right time to enhance our travel portfolio to offer some new and fresh experiences especially as 2020 has really given us more of an appetite to explore closer to home,” commented Clive Stacey, managing director of Discover the World.

Discover the World continues to offer a wide portfolio of holidays to destinations including Iceland, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Alaska, Canada and the Polar regions. In fact, with Iceland already open to visitors, adding the new UK portfolio means that the operator has some great choices for summer and autumn holidays to book now as other countries gradually open up.

“Usually when we add a new destination it takes us considerable time to research, travel and set up new relationships on the ground. Therefore, by forming this type of partnership where we are able to harness Wilderness Scotland’s 19 years of experience and excellent customer service, we can offer our clients some incredible trips for this summer and autumn and into 2021.” added Stacey.

Exploring rugged beautiful landscapes, wildlife experiences and off-the-beaten track itineraries is at the heart of Discover the World’s travel specialism. The content of the new UK portfolio mirrors the types of trips already offered to other destinations as well as also offering ‘no-fly’ travel options, with a range of self-drive, rail, hiking and escorted group travel options.
