Welcome to Island Holidays, a personally run, specialist tour operator which I've been operating since establishing it in 1987. We offer relaxed special-interest holidays for small guided groups and also, using our superb network of contacts worldwide, offer independent birding, wildlife and natural history holidays.

For many years we have offered a high number of tours. Now we have decided to specialise in certain areas - notably the South Atlantic Islands with southern Africa and the Polar Regions - the Arctic and Antarctica. But there are so many wonderful places which we still want to offer now and again and these are found in our 'Featured Favourites' section.

Happy 30th Birthday Island Holidays!

It all started in August 1987 when the late Bobby Tulloch and Libby Weir-Breen headed “down” to York (Bobby from Shetland and Libby from Perthshire) to meet the Falkland Islands Tourist Board. It was thanks to their support that Island Holidays came into being. And we are delighted still to be taking people to that incredible destination as well as to Bobby's home islands of Shetland. I hope you'll join us on one of our holidays either to Falklands or Shetland or, indeed, to any of the places which we at Island Holidays have come to know and love over the years.
