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

Good news - reduced cost

All we're hearing about these days is cuts, cuts and more cuts. But here's some refreshing news. We've been able to CUT THE COST of our South Africa tour from the original £4,735 to an amazing £3,895!!! You see, the last time I was in South Africa I went out in the field with our colleagues from Rockjumper Birding Tours and was so hugely impressed not only by their knowledge but by the delightful way they have with people. It got me to realising that we really don't need to send a British leader with the group because they'll be beautifully looked after in an Island Holidays kind of way. So we've been able to deduct the leader costs and offer you this fantastic price. 

The new details can be found in the Featured Favourites section on this site. The tour is for October 2011 but we suggest you book soon to avoid disappointment.
