Honeyguide holiday calendar

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 November 2023.

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 Of course this also had the advantage of being updated regularly, whereas a brochure gets out of date very quickly for various practical reasons.

Honeyguide walks in Norfolk 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.

Old brochures

The last Honeyguide brochure to be posted, for 2020, was sent out in September 2019. There was no brochure for 2021 or since.

Honeyguide has moved holiday information and bookings to being web-based, though we've kept this brochure online for interest. To download or view a PDF of this Honeyguide Wildlife Holidays brochure for 2020, click on the picture of the cover below.

Crete, autumn

This 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.
