Independent Travel to St Helena

Passage by Royal Mail Ship, flights and accommodation

Getting to St Helena can be a bit complicated which is why it's a good idea to get help from people who are familiar with all the ins and outs. We don't believe there any tour operator in the world who has more experience on this front than Island Holidays. Certainly we are the only one to offer guided tours on a regular basis, but we also know the island, the ship, the ports of call and - most of all - the people in the community. This means that we are ideally placed to give travel advice and make reservations for the independent traveller as well as our own groups.

If it were just a question of booking the ship life would be easy - and, if that's all you need, we can do that for you. But there are flights to and from Ascension Island or Cape Town to join the RMS (Royal Mail Ship) and it's always wise to have accommodation booked at either end of the voyage in case of delays. On St Helena there's a choice of different types of accommodation and we can help you choose what suits you best.

There's one other thing and that is my own personal love of the island and of the other places involved in travel to St Helena: the ship herself, Ascension Island and southern Africa. So when you talk to me or Karon you are going to get an understanding of what makes the islands tick and how you can make the most of your visit.
