Wildlife holidays in the UK
In a world where long-haul travel is so easy, we can sometimes forget the wildlife and scenic treasures to be found at home.
From the rolling heaths and woodlands of the New Forest National Park to the extensive wetlands that line the north Norfolk coastline, the varied habitats and landscapes of the UK are home to a wealth of exciting wildlife. It is definitely not essential to go abroad when UK wildlife holidays offer such diversity.
Our UK specialist recommends...
"I recommend our ‘Seabirds & Cetaceans of Lyme Bay’ day trips if you want an exciting day’s wildlife watching. For a slightly longer break why don’t you join our 9-day ‘Shetland’s Wildlife’ tour where we go in search of Otters, seals, and the breeding waders and seabirds of the Shetland Islands."

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR UK HOLIDAYS
Both Tom and Greg worked very hard and diligently. Their expertise and communication skills were excellent. Very cheerful and helpful. Their efforts are very much appreciated and "made" the holiday.
I enjoyed all of it. The scenery the birds the Otters. Marcus was an excellent guide, enthusiastic and informative. I learnt a lot from him. He was tireless, leading us on early morning walks (one of these was a highlight with 2 Otters on glassy calm water) to late night drives. He found us White-tailed Eagles, many Otters, Pine Marten, Scotch Argus butterfly and much more. This trip was close to perfect.
A well organised weekend with excellent leaders who tried hard to find difficult species, based on good local knowledge. A good range of habitats visited. I feel that I really know the Forest of Dean and its wildlife now.
