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.

Dates for 2018

It will be some months before most dates are available. Honeyguiders are invited to suggest holidays from our regular programme and archive of destinations that they would like to take, and that will influence next year's programme. Pencil bookings can be made at any time.

Dates for 2018 once confirmed will slowly appear here. Links take you to a page that has details from when the holiday was most recently run: these are still to be updated with dates, prices tbc.
