Tallship Thalassa offers several theme tours along the Scottish coasts, including sailing/walking tours.
During this sailing/hiking trip, we explore Scotland by ship and by foot. Our experienced Scotland/walking guide Gerard Spaans is on board to provide you with lovely walking routes and if desired, guidance.
This trip is an excellent opportunity. A unique sailing trip starting from the beautiful port town of Oban with its rich history. We will be carried along the rugged coasts of the various Scottish islands and peninsulas. Depending on the wind and tide, we will see Mull, Ardnamurchan, Skye and Rum, for example.
The history of the Hebrides goes back millions of years. Since then, time has marked the landscape. Its history can be seen in lava formations, local vegetation and buildings, among other things.
When the wind permits we aim to sail a little more. This allows guests to enjoy the surroundings to the optimum. We are regularly accompanied by dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, various sea birds and sometimes even whales following the ship! Those who want to roll up their sleeves help the crew with the sails.
Once ashore, there is a choice of a nice walk or a visit to one of the various local Scottish attractions. Sightseeing by taxi is also possible: local taxi drivers are happy to show visitors all the ins and outs of the area. This sometimes creates memorable moments. In short: this trip offers a nice balance between all that this Scottish region can offer with plenty of room for our guests' personal interpretation.
Our guide on board is happy to help you along the way, he is well-versed in Scotland's history and provides expert advice on where our guests can go for local walks or visit castles and other historical sites.
During the evening on board, experiences can be shared and plans for the next day are made, meanwhile enjoying a delicious drink from our well-stocked (whisky) bar.
At the end of the week, we disembark in Oban. With the experiences gained on board Thalassa, it may be possible to linger here a little longer. Oban is perfect for a few extra days' holiday, to stroll along the promenade, enjoy a tasting at the local Oban distillery or visit one of the museums.
NB for all parts of this programme: wind and weather permitting.
