Honeyguide holiday calendar

There will not be a 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which both limits overseas travel and adds uncertainties that make planning difficult: a brochure is likely to be out of date very quickly.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 in the autumn for updates; the rest of this page gives a guide to plans for the coming months.

For booking information, click here.

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. Last updated November 2020.

Below are the dates for overseas holidays that were planned before the coronavirus epidemic. Expressions of interest in holidays are very welcome, though we are not yet taking formal bookings for any of these as travel overseas is not possible at the moment. Other overseas holidays e.g. for autumn 2021 will be planned later.

If travel overseas remains difficult, we expect to run more holidays/breaks in the UK in 2021.

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.

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