Europe

Naturetrek wildlife holidays in Europe focus on the outstanding wildlife habitats and species that can be found in the region.

Wildlife holidays in Europe

Many of our holidays in Europe focus on the outstanding wildlife habitats that we have left in the region, from alpine meadows to wetlands. We also offer tours that go in search of particular species such as Sperm Whales in the Azores and Polar Bears in Spitsbergen, or focus on watching particular mammals such as lynx, Wolverine or Brown Bears, whilst others are timed to coincide with impressive spring and autumn bird migrations across the continent.

Our Europe specialist recommends...

"If you love mammals try our short tours to see Bears in Sweden and Finland, or go in search of Wolf or Iberian Lynx in Spain. You can’t beat the Swiss Alps for alpine plants, I’d recommend the Pyrenees if you like walking, and for stunning scenery and flowers the Italian Dolomites are outstanding.”

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Europe HOLIDAYS

A.F.
Hertfordshire
The Camargue in Spring

The brochure provided accurate and detailed information about the trip and gave a clear idea of what was involved. Pre-departure information and tickets arrived promptly and the service provided by office staff was efficient. The hotel was comfortable and unpretentious and the food was terrific! Both of the leaders, Peter and Ian, took trouble to ensure that the less experienced and eagle-eyed among us saw the birds immediately obvious to the experts and this was much appreciated. The group atmosphere was very congenial and the leaders contributed to this in no small part. I enjoyed the holiday very much and would go on another Naturetrek holiday. I think the holiday was good value because of having small groups with two leaders.

West Yorkshire
The Camargue in Spring

The hotel food was very good, the owners charming and helpful.
Tour leaders very friendly and knowledgeable. Flexibility of itinerary was excellent. Birding sites well researched and beautiful. Good accommodation and food.
