Honeyguide holiday calendar

There is no Honeyguide brochure for 2021 on account of the coronavirus pandemic, which both limits overseas travel and adds uncertainties that make planning difficult: a brochure is likely to be out of date very quickly.

Holidays and UK breaks will instead be promoted through this website. Keep an eye out for updates; the rest of this page gives a guide to plans for coming months.

Weekly Honeyguide walks are running in Norfolk now the rule-of-six outdoors is back, 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.

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, click here. Last updated April 2021.

UK breaks

These are the three UK breaks initially set up for autumn 2020, now providing frameworks for breaks in May 2021. More breaks like these can be organised if we know there is interest.

Norfolk break with Chris Durdin 17-21 May 2021 (1 place available)

Norfolk break with Chris Durdin 31 May - 3 June 2021 (3 places available)
North Norfolk with Rob Lucking 17-21 May 2021 (1 place available)
Wild Essex with Chris Gibson 24–28 May 2021 (fully booked).

The Lizard, Cornwall, with David Collins 27 September – 4 October 2021 (four places available).


In the UK Goverment's 'roadmap', 17 May 2021 is the date for the possible return of international travel, though probably to a limited range of countries. Overseas holidays previously planned for before this date are now carried forward to 2022.

Below are the dates for overseas holidays that were mostly planned before the coronavirus epidemic, mostly now rolled forward to 2022.

Expressions of interest in holidays are very welcome, including for those listed for autumn 2021, though we are not yet taking formal bookings for any of these until we are certain travel overseas is possible.

Below are links to friends and partners overseas, namely Geoff Crane in South Africa and Pau Lucio in Spain. We have run many holidays with both Geoff and Pau and they also run their own holidays. These links were on the Honeyguide 'home page' but they are here for now while the FCO is discouraging non-essential travel to South Africa and Spain.

Group holidays / archive

Additional group holidays or UK breaks (subject to the 'rule of six') 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.
