The Galapagos Islands are widely regarded as one of the world’s finest wildlife holiday destinations. The remarkably habituated and almost tame wildlife, much of which is endemic to the islands, can only be seen to be believed.

The Naturetrek Tailormade team has enjoyed a great year creating incredible bespoke wildlife holidays all over the world, and we have many tailormade tours in the pipeline for 2018.

Tour participant Dermot Smith chose our ‘Ecuador – Cock of the Rock’ holiday as his first Naturetrek trip back in February 2017.

Our staff have each picked a personal wildlife travel highlight for 2017 – read about trips to South Africa, Ecuador, The Gambia, Indonesia, Iceland, the UK and Brazil. 

At the end of December 2017, our inaugural whale-watching cruise around Norway’s northern fjords set sail (writes tour leader David Phillips) and we were all delighted to be able to see in the New Year with nature’s own variation on fireworks – a magnificent display of the Northern Lights!
