Shetland Island Excursions

Shetland lies at 60° North, 1° West, at the cross roads of the Atlantic and North Sea. It has a population of 250,000 sheep, 200,000 puffins (May - July) and just 23,000 people.

Island Vista aims to enhance the visitor experience by concentrating on creating excursions that connect together Shetlands traditional way of life, natural panoramic beauty, unique archaeology and rugged landscape of the Shetland isles.
