Butterfly Watching holidays
Who can fail to be delighted by butterflies – the intensity and variety of their colours, their delicate beauty and fascinating life cycles? Our tours allow butterfly-watching enthusiasts to observe marvellous species all around the world. Sadly, butterflies are in decline in many regions. To help prevent the loss of these beautiful creatures, our butterfly holidays make a direct contribution to their conservation.
Our Butterfly Specialist Recommends
"I'd recommend Naturetrek's Butterflies of South Africa holiday. On this butterfly holiday we look for butterflies in the Wajkkerstrom (montane grassland), which supports a wonderful diversity of species. Closer to home I'd suggest our Butterflies of Hungary tour, or Butterflies of Croatia for unspoilt landscapes and a density of butterfly-life rarely seen in western Europe now."

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Butterflies HOLIDAYS
Tony Williams proved to be an excellent leader, determined for us to see as many species of butterfly as possible (including the elusive Woodland Brown!). The highlight of the trip was our visit to the private estate with its amazing wild flower meadows, but all the days were good. The lunches were excellent - lots of choice and variety, with all tastes catered for. We could not fault the organisation.
Our group leader this time was excellent. An expert in his field, yet having patience with beginners. Altogether an extremely enjoyable trip and superbly led.
My Naturetrek holiday was absolutely superb. My thanks go to Terry who is an excellent leader, very friendly and amazingly patient!
