Wildlife Holidays

Wildlife and nature play a part in so many of our holidays from the wildlife rich Polar Regions to the iconic marsupials of Australia, the rugged natural beauty of Iceland and New Zealand where the natural scenery is complemented by wonderful bird watching and whale watching opportunities. In Churchill, Canada, polar bear watching is second to none making this a truly epic wildlife encounter.


Natural wonders abound across all our destinations and with memorable wildlife encounters possible, below are just a few ideas to consider.


Our collection of bear watching holidays features Canada, Finland and Spitsbergen and includes polar bears, grizzlies, brown bears and more. For a short time each year, Churchill in northern Canada is transformed into the ‘Polar Bear Capital of the World’. Our polar bear watching trips include a ‘long weekend’ based in Winnipeg with a full day in Churchill, or the two-centre tour which gives you more time to explore Churchill and the tundra. This icon of the Arctic, the polar bear, can also be seen on an Arctic voyage.


Our collection of Polar Voyages offer some truly unsurpassed wildlife encounters and are ideal for those with an interest in the natural world. Several species of penguin, seals, whales and sea birds provide the entertainment in Antarctica while Arctic wildlife includes whales and birds as well as walrus, musk oxen and of course, the polar bear.


Whale watching has always played an important role in our collection of holidays from Iceland to New Zealand, the Arctic to Antarctica - wildlife-rich waters that surround these destinations make encounters with the 'wonders of the deep', absolutely unforgettable! find out more »


Kangaroo Island, off the coast of South Australia is earning itself a reputation as the 'Galapagos of Australia'. With kangaroos, koalas, wallabies, possums, echidnas, goannas, platypus, penguins, sea-lions and fur seals all to be found in their natural habitat - the comparison is clear. Whilst in New Zealand, the native species are often small, the iconic kiwi being the prime example, but no less impressive.
