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


Royal Mail Ship Schedule Extended to June 2017

Unresolved windshear problems at the new airport mean the Royal Mail Ship stays in service.

St Helena Government and Andrew Weir Shipping Management have announced the extension of the Royal Mail Ship schedule until the end of June 2017.  There is no expectation of the new airport opening in the next few months.

Island Holidays will be offering two guided tours (November 2016 and February 2017) and can also arrange independent travel with advice based on our knowledge and experience of the island which we know and love so well.

It is anticipated that demand for cabins will be extremely high and early booking will be absolutely essential.

Please contact us to know more about the current travel situation or our guided tours.
