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

Galapagos - We Decided to Return

We found the right partner to operate in Galapagos!

Blue-footed BoobyThe company we used to use was getting so expensive as to be unviable and so we dropped the destination for a considerable number of years. But now we’ve teamed up with Silversea Expeditions and their 100-passenger ship Silver Galapagos. I didn’t know much about the company and am always wary of new things, particularly in such an environmentally fragile destination as Galapagos, but I now know all to be well because our own Will Wagstaff (of Scilly and Falklands fame) works on one of the Silversea ships in the Antarctic every winter and he has given me the low down. They’re our kind of people!

All the details about our new tour are now online. The holiday includes a couple of nights in Quito as well as a trip to the Mindo Cloud Forest.
