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


Amazing New Swimming Pool

Our regular hotel on the Isles of Scilly now has a brand new pool.

For many years now we’ve been using the delightful Bell Rock Hotel on the Isles of Scilly for our tours, both spring and autumn. It’s a 2-star hotel, purely because it’s impossible to install lifts because of its Listed Building status but the quality and service are way beyond that. And now the facilities have been enhanced by a brand new state of the art swimming pool. There really is nothing nicer than to get back from a satisfying day out in the great outdoors (having seen some fabulous birds and gorgeous scenery) to relax in a really lovely pool.

We still have a few places left for our spring tour departing 2nd May for 7 nights. The cost is £1,485 with a single room supplement of £210. Then there’s our autumn tour, again for 7 nights, the cost of which is slightly less at £1,395 - and we still have a few rooms left with no single room supplement.
