Charters

Hire The Swan

The Swan is available for private charter, and a package that suits you or your group’s needs can be developed.

Charters do not need to begin or end in Shetland; in recent years we have undertaken private charters to Norway and Faroe. To discuss your requirements and find out more contact the Swan Trust by e-mail or telephone.

The Swan Trust is offering a varied 2020 programme of trips, which can now be booked online. Swan will visit two festivals on the UK Mainland, cruise down the Caledonian Canal, explore the Western Isles, and look to hop over to St Kilda. She will also be doing trips around Shetland, including a partnership with local musician Barry Nisbet to offer his Sessions and Sail in the isles for the first time, to coincide with the start of the 40th Shetland Folk Festival, and trips to coincide with Shetland Boat Week and the Festival of the Sea in Scalloway.  In August she will head over to Norway on a trip inspired by the Shetland Bus then take a cruise around the Hardangerfjord before returning to Shetland for September.
