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

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


25 years of Island Holidays

An expedition cruise round the Scottish Islands will celebrate Island Holidays' 25th anniversary next summer.

Where better to go to mark this major anniversary of a Scottish company co-founded by a Shetland-islander than the Scottish Islands - including Fair Isle and Mousa in Shetland?   The itinerary also includes the fascinating St Kilda with its haunting history and incredible seabird cliffs.  We just thought folk should know that there are only 34 passengers on board the beautiful sailing ship, Rembrandt van Rijn, and places are fast disappearing.
