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


Faroes 2012

Remote but accessible, the Faroe Islands lie in the North Sea equidistant between Shetland and Iceland (give or take!).

The fact that our 2012 Faroe Islands holiday comes under "Featured Favourites" really says it all.  The islands are extraordinary:  beautiful, moody, culturally fascinating and with a wealth of history and legend.  Bookings are now being taken for our tour in July 2012 - find out more here.
