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

David Tattersfield is an outstanding tour leader -knowledgeable, enthusiastic, patient and caring. He adapted the itinerary to accommodate ability/ interest levels, and was very attentive to the party’s needs throughout. A hugely enjoyable week.
I really enjoyed this trip, the area was very interesting in terms of the habitats and birds and creatures that live there. The guides David and Ian were very knowledgeable and friendly, helping us to see lots of different birds and dragonflies. The accommodation at the hotel was comfortable and the food was excellent - both the dinners and the picnics! A very enjoyable and informative trip.

The Camargue in Spring

Peter Dunn is a first class leader and made the holiday a total pleasure. Ian Nicholson - his first trip, a good all rounder. His people skills were very good.
