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


The Frozen Planet

Did you see the first episode of David Attenborough's new series - The Frozen Planet - last night?

It was amazing.  Brilliant photography, fascinating subject, superbly presented.  For those of you with the travel bug it wilil have got the toes twitching.

If you would like to sign up for a visit to the Arctic or Antarctica check out the Polar Regions section of our website. If you haven't visited the pages for a while, check out the brand new Antarctic Odyssey which really would be the trip of a lifetime from South America to New Zealand or vice versa.
