Whether you simply want to enjoy the beauty of flowers or hunt for particular species we have many botanical tours to suit you.


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.

Our flower tours specialist recommends …

"I’d recommend ‘Wengen – Alpine Flowers of the Swiss Alps’, ‘Autumn Plants of the Peloponnese’ and ‘Madeira – The Floating Garden’ for a good range of what plant life Europe has to offer. For the more adventurous plant hunter try ‘Ecuador’s Andean flora’ or either of the two flower tours to China."

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!

David Tattersfield was an excellent tour leader.

Mrs B.

The birdwatching and botanising was excellent - truly remarkable finds, thanks to Tim Mellings leadership and acute observation and Davids expertise and tenacity, exciting novices & proficient members of the group alike!
Once again I can't praise David Tattersfield too highly. I believe this was the 20th week that he had led the same walks in Wengen and his enthusiasm and interest in the plants and the area is just as keen and fresh as it must have been on the first week - perhaps more so as his knowledge and love of the place has increased. The way in which he wants to share his knowledge and enthusiasm is wonderful - as well as being a first class botanist he is an excellent communicator. Four of us had previously been on Naturetrek holidays led by David and many more intend to go with him in the future.
