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."

I really appreciated going with Naturetrek to this lovely part of the world. It is difficult to plan visits to the islands from a distance and I really thought the boat trips to the Islands excellent as we were given plenty of time to look at the birds. Both Mike and Alan were very helpful and kind and made the best use of weather conditions. Many thanks for your organisation.
This was my first Naturetrek holiday and I chose a destination I knew a little as I wanted to try a wildlife holiday and also as a means to see more of the Scilly Isles. I certainly wasn’t disappointed (on either score!). The food in the bed and breakfast was of a very high standard. We visited a number of cafés during our excursions and this certainly added to the enjoyment of the holiday. Paul's knowledge of his subject and evident love of the islands was passed on to all of us on this trip and provided for a very happy week. Thank you.
