What makes Torridon so good? We’re often asked what it is that draws us back to Torridon time and time again – we actually spent more evenings there than in Wales in summer 2017! So here goes… Landscape Torridon is one of those rare places where the mountains rise straight out of the sea. Jagged…

Is this trip for me?:
This is one of the toughest trips we run, suitable for strong intermediates or more experienced riders.
Technical: Blacks are unlikely to phase you and you’re happy on even tougher natural terrain. You’re happy on smaller drops that can’t be rolled.
Fitness: You’re comfortable out all day at a good pace, and will even manage a few real epics if you pace yourself. 50km+ and 1500m of climbing won’t phase you.
There’ll be some big ups (including a fair bit of hike-a-bike), some long days, and some technical downs – a sense of humour may be required at times. It will also involve riding 4 days back to back (but voluntary rest days are possible if needed).
If you’re at all concerned about whether the trip is right for you, please call us on 07974 912479. We will be more than happy to advise.
Price per person: £729
There are only 7 spaces available on a first-come, first-served basis. A £55 deposit secures a place with the balance payable 6 weeks before. We’ll also keep a waiting list in case anyone drops out.

The weather and conditions will have a huge bearing on what we can actually do –the itinerary is likely to change from day to day.
