There are few more pleasing sights in the natural world than a meadow filled with wild flowers. 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 Wild Flower 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.Why choose Naturetrek’s flower tours?

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. We also visit more remote areas of the world in search of plant-life.
These botanical tours may involve prolonged treks and camping. We look for wild
Kazakhstan, and we traverse Himalayan valleys in search of many species.
WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Wildflowers HOLIDAYS
David Tattersfield was an excellent tour leader.
David Tattersfield, our leader, was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble, his knowledge of the Flora was encyclopaedic and his energy enviable.
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.
