There are few more pleasing sights in the natural world than a meadow filled with wildflowers. Seeing plants in their native habitat is always exciting and our flower tours offer you an incredible choice, from dazzling tropical blooms and the thrill of finding elusive orchids or delicate alpines, to seeing island endemics or British flora.
NATURETREK WILDFLOWER HOLIDAYS
Many of us want to know more about the plants we see around us. Whether inspired by appreciation of the aesthetic appeal of flowers, or a more focused desire to identify individual species, everyone with an interest in botany will derive pleasure from participating in one of Naturetrek’s flower tours.
Why choose Naturetrek’s flower tours?
- Groups are kept deliberately small
- All wildflower holidays led by expert botanist guides
- All levels of interest and expertise catered for
- Focus on flora, but expert guidance also given on other wildlife
What can I expect on typical Naturetrek wildflower holidays
- Travel with a group of like-minded people
- For most flower tours we stay at a comfortable hotel or lodge close to an area of outstanding botanical interest
- A series of leisurely day excursions with ample time to study botanical finds
In addition to dedicated flower tours we offer holidays with a wider theme, seeing birds, butterflies and other aspects of natural history as well as the flora.
I’m looking for adventure …
We also visit more remote areas of the world in search of plant life. These botanical tours may involve prolonged treks and camping. We offer two wildflower holidays in China following in the footsteps of the pioneering plant hunters; we look for wild Tulips in Kazakhstan, and we traverse Himalayan valleys in search of many species.
But we offer so much more!

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Wildflowers HOLIDAYS
David is a superb leader and very attentive to the requirements of the group. Always approachable and willing to go the extra distance to fulfil the wishes of the group paying particular attention to members as they require it. My knowledge of plant species was not great at the start but his enthusiasm was very infectious, and not just for plants, but those people interested in birds were also catered for in some depth. I thoroughly enjoyed my first Naturetrek holiday and will travel with you again sometime next year.
Tim Melling is brilliant, indefatigable and fun. Tom Brereton was also persistent at tracking down small plants for determined amateurs! And always helpful and kind to this oldie who is inclined to forget names! I enjoyed the company and the format of the holiday very much.
Our guide, David, was outstanding and great company throughout the trip. He carefully selected routes according to the weather and despite some rainy days prepared delicious picnics for lunch. His knowledge of mountain plants is clearly outstanding, but what is even more impressive is his ability to share that understanding and enthusiasm with comparative beginners like us.
