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


Final Escorted RMS Tour to St Helena

What will probably be our last guided and escorted voyage to St Helena on board the Royal Mail Ship is scheduled for September 2017. Cabins are available!

Island Holidays has secured an allocation of cabins on RMS voyage 263 that leaves Cape Town on 26 September 2017.  We are therefore running probably the last of our fully guided and escorted tours on board the Royal Mail Ship which have proved so popular over the past 12 years. Spaces are available at the time of writing, but early booking is imperative otherwise the cabins will have to be released. This could be your last chance to get to St Helena using the Royal Mail Ship, as cabins are more or less fully booked between now and when she is de-commissioned in February 2018.

For more news please visit our St Helena homepage and for full details on the September tour go to our guided tour page.
