For 2019 we will take you on a sea kayaking expedition to the Shetland Islands.  

 

The sea kayaking expedition base will be on the South/Westerly side, in Walls*, perfectly located to enable us to explore the island of Papa Stour and the stunning coastline.  

 

For your sea kayakig expedition in Shetland we have booked for you exclusive use of the stunning Voe House Böd. Overlooking the picturesque village of Walls, Voe House Böd is a fascinating building which has been carefully restored using recycled building materials , it will make a perfect base for your 2019 sea kayaking expedition.

 

The original building  adjoining the böd and now derelict, is thought to have been a 16th century manse. The böd itself probably dates from the mid 18th century. This sea kayaking expedition base allows us to maximise the weather and sea kayaking opportunities.  

 

Bring your small tent or bivvy bag, we aim to wild camp as well!
