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


Coming Soon - Ascension Island

We're planning another holiday on Ascension Island.

Too often Ascension Island is seen simply as a stopping off point en route for the Falkland Islands (and you don't ever get beyond the departure area) or as the embarkation port for the Royal Mail Ship St Helena.   But it is a superb island in its own right.   We'll be working with our friends at Ascension Conservation and the idea is  that participants in the holiday will do a bit of hands-on conservation work - possibly weeding out invasive species or that kind of thing.   A date has yet to be arranged so watch this space!
