Special-interest holidays worldwide
Island Holidays
Established 1987

The Polar Regions

Whether in Antarctica or the Arctic, expedition voyages take you to remote, unspoilt places with amazing scenery, wildlife and history. Island Holidays offers both land-based holidays and expedition cruises. View our Arctic and Antarctic expedition cruises


South Atlantic Islands

We're talking about some of the most remote places on Earth – St Helena (to which we offer both fully guided tours and independent travel), the Falkland Islands and Tristan da Cunha to name but a few. View our South Atlantic Islands cruise holidays

Featured Favourites

Over many years Island Holidays has been offering fantastic birding, wildlife and history themed holidays, some of which have stood out as being really very special. Some are close to home, some far-flung, all of them favourite! View our favourite guided holiday destinations


New Website

Change in direction reflected in new, exciting website.

Well, what do you think? Personally I'm really excited about our new website and the slightly different direction Island Holidays is taking.

You'll notice that the number of destinations on offer has been significantly reduced and, on the whole, we're concentrating on particular areas. I say "on the whole" because there are some places I want to include which simply don't fit geographically. For instance there's no way a birding holiday in Cuba ties in with "South Atlantic Islands"! And so I've introduced a section called "Featured Favourites" and these will change from time to time.

We're not producing a detailed brochure as in the past but all the details are on the website.  Well – nearly all. Still working on some of them!

By the way – thanks to Richard Albion who's put so much work into getting the site up and running. You're a wee genius Rich!
