Off Grid Travel offers imaginative accommodation which bring our guests closer to nature.
Our luxury, off grid accommodation designs are new in Europe and we are excited to be taking bookings at our first destination at the Cambo Estate in Scotland..

Each member is passionate about what they do and has brought complementary experience, expertise and energy to developing new ways of exploring European nature.
Our holidays help to protect and enhance the natural world through inspiring our guests and creating benefits for nature-minded landowners and local communities.
