Carbon Neutral Activities & Wellbeing in our Cities – Inverness Activities & Exercise
When you look at the local scenery, it’s no surprise that the city of Inverness has developed such a keen appetite for outdoor activities and free form exercise. During your stay, you can combine your cardio routine with stunning lakeside vistas or swap the peloton for a road bike and set off down a mountain path.
Inverness City Centre Walking Tour
Before venturing out of the city limits, try your hand (or foot) at a walking tour – this is a great way to familiarise yourself with the area, its history and get your steps in before settling on a dinner option.
Inverness Botanic Gardens
Open seven days a week and free of charge, the Inverness Botanic Garden is a cornucopia of tropical plants, ponds, succulents and vibrant flowers. Better yet, the garden is cared for and nurtured by the GROW project – an initiative designed to help individuals with learning disabilities to develop life skills, gain work experience and find greater independence. With hours of walk paths, you’re sure to work up a sweat during your visit.
Inverness Bike Hire
If you want total freedom to explore the surrounding region of Inverness, why not look into a local bike hire? The official Inverness Bike Hire service is affiliated with VisitScotland and provides the most flexible, environmentally-sound way to explore the highlands.
The Inverness sustainable tourism strategy is centred on providing visitors to the city with the tools and information to make sustainable choices that allow for enjoyment and free spending, without preventable harm to the environment. This approach is apparent in the variety of transport options, cycle paths and, more recently, a carbon-neutral business improvement district (the first in the UK).
