Island Holidays
Established 1987

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


New Destination - Seychelles

Birds and conservation in stunningly beautiful islands

It's lots of years since Island Holidays last took a group to the Seychelles, basically  because you simply can't offer every wonderful place to your clients - especially when you're a small, personally run business.  But now that we have a different approach, the Seychelles fits beautifully into our "Featured Favourites" section - it's featured and it's a favourite!

Our tour (scheduled for March 2011)  will concentrate on the natural history of the islands, from the pristine forests to the miles of unspoilt beaches and the coral reefs with which they are fringed.   We'll stay on three of the islands - Praslin, Mahe and Denis, and also visit La Digue to see if we can find the beautiful Paradise Flycatcher.
