Short Break Wildlife Holidays
Among our programme is a significant range of short breaks, designed specially for those wishing to enjoy some of Europe’s top natural history highlights at the best time of year. All of these holidays have the bonus of being short-haul and supported by like-minded wildlife enthusiasts.
Our short break specialist recommends...
“We offer two superb short breaks to the lovely island of Madeira in search of whales, dolphins and seabirds. It’s hard to beat our Just Brown Bears trip for families, while if you fancy something off the beaten track, try Estonia in Early Spring for some excellent spring birdwatching.”
Naturetrek short break wildlife tours
Short breaks are becoming increasingly popular and in response to the high demand for this type of holiday we are continuing to increase our programme both within the UK and abroad. Most of our short breaks are within Europe, for convenience of travel.
For some of our mini-breaks there is an option to travel by plane or train, and we offer a choice of duration and type of break, from a weekend’s birdwatching in the Somerset Levels to a 6-day whale watching tour in the Azores.

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Short Breaks HOLIDAYS
The tour leaders were very good. Simon was a phenomenal field naturalist as was Niki who also looked after us well providing very good picnics. The group with their different personalities bonded well together so that there was an atmosphere of general bonhomie developed.
The local guides were excellent, knowledgeable, informative about local culture, and worked hard to show everyone the local bird specialities.
Our guides deserve special praise. As a keen birder I found their knowledge and enthusiasm for birds outstanding.
