The Polar Regions

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


Aurora Borealis from Iceland

A recent spectacular aurora borealis display photographed by our tour leader.

Aurora Borealis from IcelandThere have been some great aurora displays this winter and Andy Jones (our Iceland tour leader) photographed this spectacular display the other day. Did you see the amazing display on the 27th of February? If you have any photos we'd love to see them – and maybe pop them up on our blog (with your permission!).

Although the folk on our summer tour in June miss out on this aspect, it’s more than compensated by the long hours of daylight and the tremendous number and variety of birds. Whether your choose our summer or winter tour, there’ll be plenty of birding plus a chance to learn more about this most remarkable island.

Tours depart 24 June for 9 nights (£2,775 sharing) and 13 November for 4 nights (£1,240 sharing).
