Cairngorms Stravaig – Hike and Wild Camp

When is this event?

  1. 4th May 2024

This 2 Day Trek is for those who want to experience the psychological and physical wellbeing that the remote beauty and wildness of the Cairngorm mountains and glens bring. The sheer act of living, walking through and sleeping out in nature, unplugged from every day distractions can be life changing.

The Cairngorms is our home and we consider it to be a very special place. The only sub-arctic area of the UK, it is also home to a vast array of geological and biological interest. From its high rocky plateau and glacially carved corries, to its uniquely adapted wildlife and stunning alpine flora.

This trek will be over 2 days, and taken at a leisurely pace. It’s perfect for beginners and those looking to learn how to wild-camp responsibly, and gain skills and confidence to do so.

Our journey will start somewhere between Glenmore and Cairngorm Mountain Ski Centre, depending on route and weather. It may take in more low-level environments such as the Caledonian Forest, or more of the rocky Cairngorm Plateau…

There’s a term we like to use here in Scotland, which is to “stravaig”, meaning to wander or roam, freely moving across the landscape however you feel. While we will follow a rough route decided by your guide, there will be plenty of opportunity to stravaig, hopefully allowing time to take in all of the beauty this part of the world brings.
