Over many years Island Holidays has been offering fantastic destinations, some of which have stood out as being really very special. Some are close to home, some far-flung. Keep an eye on our news section to see what's coming up.
Famed for Fidel Castro, cigars and salsa, Cuba is a vibrant island with a fascinating heritage and the best birding in the western Caribbean. Our holiday visits various different areas and diverse habitats and we'll hope for a sighting of the world's smallest bird, the Bee Hummingbird as well as many other endemics. We'll also spend some time exploring Old Havana - a delight not included by most birding companies. Read more about Cuba
A destination which has resisted the trimmings of modern tourism and retained its delightful simplicity, The Scilly Isles have changed little in 25 years. The roughest of seascapes combine with sheltered spots where sub-tropical plants thrive and the islands are a birdwatcher's paradise. Our week-long holiday is run at a relaxed pace and takes in all aspects of life on the islands. Read more about our Isles of Scilly holiday
The Shetland Islands lie far to the north of Scotland and are often described as the crossroads of the North Atlantic located as they are between the UK, Norway and the Faroe Islands. Our Shetland holiday, which includes three nights on Fair Isle, focuses on the islands' amazing wildlife - its birds, its flowers and its otters - but doesn't ignore the incredibly archaeological heritage to be found.

The Inner Hebridean islands of Islay, Colonsay and Jura have a particular magic. As well as wonderful scenery and a rich cultural heritage which we will explore, the wildlife watching opportunities are superb. And Islay and Jura have 9 whisky distilleries between them! There are very good chances of hearing and even seeing that most elusive of birds, the Corncrake, and also possibly White-tailed Eagle the endangered Chough and much, much more.

Our summer itinerary to the "land of ice and fire" includes a visit to three different islands including the Westman Islands. We take you all round the main island, getting off the beaten track as we spend our days birding, botanising and enjoying the spectacular scenery of this most wonderful country. On our 4-night winter tour you'll see more easily the contrast between ice and the fire as thermal activity takes place in the midst of the frozen landscape.Read more about our Iceland holidays
Far in the North Atlantic, half way between Shetland and Iceland, the Faroe Islands blend fantastic scenery with traditional ways of life, vibrant modernity with utter remote-ness. As well as the better known visitor attractions such as Torshavn with its turfed roofs and busy harbours, our holiday takes in some of the less known islands such as Vagar, Kalsoy and the most southerly of them all, Suduroy.
