Social Adventures to take in the Solstice…

At the extreme ends of the year, midsummer and midwinter, being in the outdoors takes on a new significance. On the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, in the north it barely gets dark, and we can sit out in the sunshine late into the evening, or get up well before breakfast to watch sunrise. At the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year, it’s time to take advantage of the few hours of light we have available before finding a cosy fireplace as night settles in, and we can celebrate that the next day the nights will begin getting shorter.

We run a series of trips that run over the summer and winter solstice, allowing you to appreciate the real extremes of light and landscape.
