Wildlife Conservation Holidays
Like anyone passionate about wildlife, we at Naturetrek want to help conserve the world’s habitats and species for future generations to enjoy. Each year we team up with leading wildlife charities to offer tours that make a direct contribution to conservation, and we also aim to make our holidays carbon neutral.
Our conservation specialist recommends …
“I’d recommend our 8-day butterfly-watching holiday to Croatia which visits Paklenica National Park and the Velebit Mountains. Ten per cent of the proceeds from our butterfly tours (including this holiday) are donated to Butterfly Conservation.”

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Conservation HOLIDAYS
This was a most interesting and enjoyable trip led by a very able leader. The holiday was both relaxing and stimulating. Highlights for me were the varied scenery of Normandy, the excellent base, variety of butterflies and Bayeux Tapestry.
Hotels were comfortable. Good food, superb surroundings, very warm welcome. Both leaders knew every detail about the butterflies and were at pains to show good birds to those who were interested. Flexibility was necessary, but the sites chosen could hardly have been bettered. Vic Tucker’s knowledge of butterflies was mind-boggling. Andras Schmidt knew both butterflies and birds to an impressive extent. He was ably assisted by his wife, Ilona, and not-quite-7-year-old son, Richard, who caught two rare fritillaries for us. A word for our driver, Steve, who was much more than that: preparing lunch, helping people in and out of the coach, carrying luggage, and always smiling. This was a wonderful trip. My third holiday with Naturetrek - I certainly hope that it will not be the last.
The participants ranged from expert to novice and Vic (co-leader) soon had us all working together, sharing knowledge and information. We certainly learned a great deal on the trip. The trip was a huge success. We were extremely lucky to have a week of unending sunshine. We were delighted to end with personal [butterfly photograph] totals of more than 70 species of which 40 plus were new to us. We will have no hesitation in recommending this trip to others.
