Honeyguide holiday calendar

There is no Honeyguide brochure for 2022 on account of the coronavirus pandemic, which first stopped and now complicates overseas travel. These uncertainties make planning a year ahead difficult, so a brochure is likely to be out of date very quickly.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.

Honeyguide walks in Norfolk run regularly, 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, relating mostly to overseas holidays, click here. Last updated May 2022.

Menorca here is already carried forward to autumn 2022. Links in this and the next section may be to holiday pages yet to be updated.

UK breaks and holidays, autumn 2021

Our first UK breaks were initially set up for autumn 2020, then again in spring 2021 (holiday reports here).
These ran in autumn 2021:

Norfolk break with Chris Durdin, 6 - 10 September 2021 (break successfully completed)
North Norfolk, autumn with Rob Lucking, 11 - 15 October 2021 (break successfully completed)

These and others may also be running in 2022; expressions of interest are very welcome.

A Honeyguide wildlife guide may be available if you are visiting Norfolk: this already happens from time to time, dependent on diaries.

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.
