Below you can see our holiday calendar in one place, check availability and click through to our holiday pages. For prices, look under the 'holiday details' for each holiday. For general booking information, relating mostly to overseas holidays, click here.
Last updated July 2024.

We no longer produce a Honeyguide brochure. Brochures stopped during the the coronavirus pandemic, and it has proved practical to use the Honeyguide website as a complete reference point for holidays. Of course this also has the advantage of being updated regularly, whereas a brochure gets out of date very quickly for various practical reasons. [Old brochures are in our archive section.]

UK breaks and holidays

Our first UK breaks were initially set up for autumn 2020, and we have run others in 2021, 2022 and 2023, mostly recently North Norfolk, autumn with Rob Lucking in October 2023.

The destinations remain online in our archive section and holiday reports.

Expressions of interest in UK breaks are very welcome and help us to know what to set up.

Honeyguide walks in Norfolk

These run with information emailed to Honeyguiders and a few others in this area. Highlights of walks to date are on the Honeyguide blog. Please ask if you'd like to be added to the circulation list.

Crete, autumn

This section notes a holiday we set up in the hope of a small group in autumn 2021. In practice, the simplification of rules for international travel did not come in soon enough, and is retained here as a future option.

If this Crete holiday runs in the future, details on the web page will be updated.
Crete 19 — 26 October 2021

Group holidays / archive

Additional group holidays or UK breaks can be arranged.

Destinations from previous years we keep on the website in the archive section.

They may be available for group bookings and others may return in a future programme – especially if we receive requests for them.

Gullivers Natural History Holidays

For two years, 2009 and 2010, we sent Honeyguide brochures to those on the former Gullivers mailing list. Some went onto Honeyguide's brochure mailing list and now our email contact list.

If you were with Gullivers - naturally this applies to anyone - and you are not getting the Honeyguide e-newsletter and would like to, please contact us.
