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 “Somerset Levels” short break. The winter Starling roosts and mumurations are spectacular, being the largest in the UK and often containing around 1 million birds! In the Spring the reed beds teem with life and an incredible 7 species of heron now breed here. For a longer break our “Scotland's Mammals & Highlights of the Highlands” holiday offers many special species including Pine Marten, Otter and Golden Eagle, together with breath-taking scenery throughout."

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR UK HOLIDAYS

Mr M.L
March 2015
The Forest of Dean

The guides had an excellent knowledge of the local birds and their calls.
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 ...
The outdoor activity centre accomodation was more than adequate for this trip. Excellent area for drying coats and boots if necessary. Food very good and the catering staff were very obliging to try and satisfy everyone's needs.
