Wildlife Holidays in Europe

Wildlife Holidays in Europe

Our wildlife tours in Europe focus on the outstanding habitats that we have in the region, from extensive boreal and deciduous forests to alpine meadows and expansive steppe and wetlands. We also offer tours that go in search of particularly charismatic species such as Polar Bears in Spitsbergen, Eurasian Lynx in Poland, or Iberian Lynx and Iberian Wolves in Spain. Our Brown Bear holidays in Finland are especially popular, as are our whale-watching holidays in the Azores, Iceland and Norway, whilst other holidays are timed to coincide with impressive spring and autumn bird migrations and congregations across the continent.

Our Specialist Recommends

"If you love mammals try our short tours to see Bears in Sweden and Finland, or go in search of Wolf or Iberian Lynx in Spain. You can’t beat the Swiss Alps for alpine plants, I’d recommend the Pyrenees if you like walking, and for stunning scenery and flowers the Italian Dolomites are outstanding.”
