Wildlife holidays in the UK
In a world where long-haul travel is so easy, we can sometimes forget the wildlife and scenic treasures to be found at home.
From the rolling heaths and woodlands of the New Forest National Park to the extensive wetlands that line the north Norfolk coastline, the varied habitats and landscapes of the UK are home to a wealth of exciting wildlife. It is definitely not essential to go abroad when UK wildlife holidays offer such diversity.
Our UK specialist recommends...
"I recommend our ‘Seabirds & Cetaceans of Lyme Bay’ day trips if you want an exciting day’s wildlife watching. For a slightly longer break why don’t you join our 9-day ‘Shetland’s Wildlife’ tour where we go in search of Otters, seals, and the breeding waders and seabirds of the Shetland Islands."

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR UK HOLIDAYS
Every now and then, in the cold wind and feeling tired, I wondered what on Earth I was doing standing around, or hiding, in the hides, although plenty to see. Then, on Sunday afternoon the sun broke through, one of our group spotted the upright figure of a bitten (we had heard it several times) in the reedbed, brilliantly camoflaged. Just at the moment everyone had fixed its location, it took flight a short distance. You could have heard a pin drop, and for a few seconds we were all hypnotised ...
My second Naturetrek holiday and I didn't think it could possibly be as good as the first, but it was. In every respect it was an absolutely incredible wildlife holiday in a stunningly beautiful area of Scotland. My thanks and appreciation to the leaders who made it such a success.
I had a wonderful time and got more than I expected... I really didn't expect to have so much fun or learn so much in such a short time. I will be looking for several more short breaks on the strength of this break and also a very special holiday abroad.
