Purveyor of Dreams
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.
NewsSecond Departure for Shetland and Fair Isle Extra 2018 date added due to high demand - book early! Flights to St Helena - The Wait Is Finally Over Scheduled flights to St Helena from Johannesburg to commence in October 2017. A Very Special Book “Bobby the Birdman” is a delightful volume which demonstrates the extraordinary gifts of this modest islander who captured so many hearts not only in Britain but wherever his travels took him.
