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


Second Departure for Shetland and Fair Isle

Extra 2018 date added due to high demand - book early!

Our first tour sold out so quickly that we have put on a second departure which leaves Aberdeen on 27th June. The 9 night holiday costs £1,875 (single supplement £140) and has the same itinerary and leaders as the earlier tour. It's a very special holiday to a group of islands close to our hearts (see our review of “Bobby the Birdman”). A super balance of mammals, birds and flowers with a smattering of archaeology and community life thrown in.
