Short Break Wildlife Holidays
Among our programme is a significant range of short breaks, designed specially for those wishing to enjoy some of Europe’s top natural history highlights at the best time of year. All of these holidays have the bonus of being short-haul and supported by like-minded wildlife enthusiasts.
Our short break specialist recommends...
“We offer two superb short breaks to the lovely island of Madeira in search of whales, dolphins and seabirds. It’s hard to beat our Just Brown Bears trip for families, while if you fancy something off the beaten track, try Estonia in Early Spring for some excellent spring birdwatching.”
Naturetrek short break wildlife tours
Short breaks are becoming increasingly popular and in response to the high demand for this type of holiday we are continuing to increase our programme both within the UK and abroad. Most of our short breaks are within Europe, for convenience of travel.
For some of our mini-breaks there is an option to travel by plane or train, and we offer a choice of duration and type of break, from a weekend’s birdwatching in the Somerset Levels to a 6-day whale watching tour in the Azores.

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Short Breaks HOLIDAYS
Utterly brilliant leaders. Marcus was superb and so was Greg. It's the best Naturetrek trip I've ever been on. The Forest of Dean is magical.
Another excellent holiday/wildlife experience from Naturetrek; it was wonderful. We had some great birdwatching including super views of bald ibis. Our leader was first class and accommodation and food were sublime. A truly memorable trip for all the right reasons. I look forward to travelling with Naturetrek again!
A great trip. Bob was an excellent leader, with his ability to communicate his knowledge and enthusiasm to our various levels of expertise. The Ksar Massa was a great location and the swimming pool was the final ingredient for my ideal holiday, so often missing in natural history tours. Marrakech and the Riad were an amazing experience.
