Honeyguide holiday calendar

There is no Honeyguide brochure for 2021 or 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 These uncertainties make planning a year ahead difficult, so a brochure is likely to be out of date very quickly.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.

We could also run walks in north Essex and south Suffolk with Honeyguide's Chris Gibson, if enough we can find several people who'd be interested. Please contact us if that might be you.

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 2021.


Below is the Honeyguide programme as presently organised for 2022. Once we have gauged the level of interest in overseas travel, we can look at additional destinations.

This section has links to two holidays we set up in the hope of a small group in autumn 2022. In practice, the simplification of rules for international travel did not come in soon enough. Potentially these could be carried forward to autumn 2022. Links in this and the next section may be to holiday pages yet to be updated.

Menorca 6 — 13 October 2021
Crete 19 — 26 October 2021

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 with Rob Lucking, 11 - 15 October 2021(break successfully completed)
Wild Essex with Chris Gibson, 4 - 8 October 2021 (break successfully completed)
The Lizard, Cornwall, with David Collins 27 September – 4 October 2021 (successfully completed).

These and others may also be running in spring/summer 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. These links were on the Honeyguide 'home page' but they are here for now while overseas travel is difficult.

Gullivers Natural History Holidays

For two years, 2009 and 2010, we sent Honeyguide brochures to those on the former Gullivers mailing list. We continue to do so to those who have been in touch and are now on the main Honeyguide mailing list.

If you were with Gullivers, aren't getting the Honeyguide brochure but would like to, please contact us.
