DRAGONFLY HOLIDAYS

Dragonflies are certainly not for the faint-hearted; they are fearsome insects - if you are their size or smaller! They are also dazzlingly beautiful, with a wide array of hues and forms. Our dragonfly tours take you to some of Europe’s top habitats where we have the best chances of witnessing a range of species and their behaviour.

NATURETREK DRAGONFLY WATCHING HOLIDAYS

Why choose one of Naturetrek’s dragonfly tours?

We like to respond to your specific wildlife interests and in recent years we have had an increasing number of requests for dedicated dragonfly holidays. We are pleased to now be able to offer a small selection of tours which focus on exploring habitats where some of Europe’s most diverse and spectacular dragonfly species are found.

All of our dragonfly tours are accompanied by at least one specialist leader. On some tours there may be a second leader with a different area of natural history expertise.

Some highlights of our dragonfly holidays may include: observing clouds of damselflies as they emerge in late spring from pools, watching them hover over a lake or stretch of grassland, or witnessing a fight to the death between territorial males.

We’re equally comfortable providing opportunities for the dedicated enthusiast to debate the finer points of identification with our expert guide, or to simply enjoy their beautiful display of colours and forms.

David Smallshire"I’m excited about the new Sardinia dragonfly tour – it is special for dragonflies, with about 35 species. Most of these are not found in the UK and its proximity to Africa means it hosts some rather exotic species such as Banded Groundlings. Island Bluetail will interest the real enthusiast, whereas Copper Demoiselles are a bit easier to find."
