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.

What can I expect on typical Naturetrek wildflower holidays

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
The main factor making these two tours exceptionally enjoyable was our tour leader, David Tattersfield. His knowledge of plants is prodigious and his patience extraordinary (if one kept forgetting the name of a flower for example). He worked tirelessly from morning till late evening doing everything possible to make the tours successful e.g. Working out timetables, shopping very early to provide us with excellent and varied picnics, giving us enough slack where people wanted to do bits on their own but always on the alert to advise and safeguard. David was enormous fun to be with and exceptionally good at the job.
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.
Our leaders were great, knowledgeable and enthusiastic and were so good with newcomers who had little experience of botany (me!). Really enjoyed the cultural sites and the walking. A lovely balance and a fab bunch of people.
