Calling all high-octane thrill seekers – kayakers: experience Shetland's rugged coastline, sea caves, and secluded coves. Überclimbers: difficult routes are yet to be scaled and sea stacks are void of chalky digits – speed is the creed and adrenaline will pump! If you're seeking a high seas adventure: sail away on a voyage of discovery to Shetland's many uninhabited islands - drop anchor, throw a fish on the barbie and open a bottle of Auld Rock. Pure escapism. For cyclists who want to push the limits: enjoy low volume traffic, 1000 miles of excellent road surfaces and tough off-road terrain. If you're an adventurist seeking new challenges surrounded by majestic scenery – Shetland won't disappoint.
