Butterfly Watching Holidays
Who can fail to be delighted by butterflies – the intensity and variety of their colours, their delicate beauty and fascinating life cycles. Our tours allow butterfly watching enthusiasts to observe marvellous species all around the world. Sadly, butterflies are in decline in many regions; to help prevent the loss of these beautiful creatures, our butterfly holidays make a direct contribution to their conservation.
Our butterfly specialist recommends …
I’d recommend ‘Butterflies of South Africa’. On this butterfly holiday we look for butterflies in the Wajkkerstrom (montane grassland), which supports a wonderful diversity of species. Closer to home I’d suggest our ‘Butterflies of Hungary ’ tour, or ‘Butterflies of Croatia’ for unspoilt landscapes and a density of butterfly life rarely seen in western Europe now. - Tom Brereton

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Butterflies HOLIDAYS
Thank you for an excellent week...it was wonderful having seen the Monarchs not just on one, but on three occasions.
This was my first Naturetrek holiday and it fulfilled and surpassed my expectations. The arrangements were smooth and efficient, the hotel was superb, the butterflies were wonderful and even the weather was fabulous! Mark Galliott was an excellent leader; a mine of information and expertise. Nothing was too much trouble and he remained focused throughout, whether netting and identifying butterflies, keeping to time schedules, driving the minibus or organising the picnic lunches. I particularly appreciated the group meetings before dinner to go over the check list, ask questions and confirm sightings. I learned a great deal.
I have wanted to see the Monarch Butterflies hibernation sites – one of nature’s greatest events – for many years, and this tour surpassed my expectations!
