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


Fantastic Discount

We've just been told of an amazing 30% discount on an expedition voyage from Scotland to Spitsbergen.

Savings of up to £800 per person are on offer for this magic voyage which sails from Aberdeen to Spitsbergen, calling at North Rona, the Faroe Islands and Jan Mayen. And, if you want to stay on for the next voyage in Svalbard there's a further 5% saving on both voyages.   It's a super trip - last year we saw several Blue Whales - the biggest animal in the world! The voyage reference is PLA 05 and we suggest you book really quickly as the ship is bound to fill really fast.
