Wildlife Holidays

Whilst we can’t guarantee the wildlife – that is the natural beauty of it – we can guarantee to organise an exceptional wildlife holiday for you.

Majestic golden and white-tailed eagles cut through the silence with the beating of their wings, red deer sip from the calm waters of a loch, svelte otters dive through silver waves to catch their prey, sleek dolphins and sometimes whales appear momentarily in the cool, Atlantic waters. If you are observant, you may be fortunate enough to encounter any one of these and a hundred other magnificent creatures in the dramatic wilderness landscapes and teeming waters off Scotland, Ireland and Northern England. Those chances increase enormously in the company of our carefully chosen, local wildlife experts. Our adept guides understand the habits and habitat of the creatures that share the beautiful places they live and work in. They know where – and when – to look, giving you the very best possible opportunity of a thrilling sight.
