The Birdwatching and Wildlife breaks that were first introduced in 2018 proved to be a popular and welcome addition to our holiday collection. So, for 2019 we have three new and exciting itineraries for you to follow. Once again, all tours will be fully escorted throughout by Ashley Grove, who will again be adding his expert skills and knowledge, ensuring you get so much more from the rich wildlife locations we will visit.

Warwickshire born Ashley has formed a career from a combination of his expert knowledge of Birds in particular and his warm approachable personality. He leads Birdwatching and Wildlife Photography tours not only in the UK, but further afield in Europe, Africa, Canada and the Caribbean.


On all Tours we will spend time outdoors regardless of the weather...


Please bring sensible clothing and wear strong shoes or boots, as it can be wet and muddy. Our Active Traveller Holidays itineraries often include walks which may be up to 1 – 1.5 miles long over uneven ground which may prove challenging for those customers with reduced and limited mobility.


What else could you bring? Binoculars are recommended, and you may wish to bring a small bird guide book to help with identification or a compact digital camera, but this is entirely up to you!

Titchwell RSPB Res'

We visit the Mecca of the North Norfolk coast at migration time! Salt marsh, freshwater marsh, reedbeds, beach and dunes - a fascinating mix of habitats for autumn migrants. During our relaxed walk around Titchwell Marsh reserve, you'll discover a wide variety of birds in their natural habitats. Stroll through dappled woodland and listen to the calls of songbirds, enjoy close-up views of waders in their wetland habitats and look out for raptors soaring over reedbeds and marsh.

Broads Cruise

What better way to discover the Broads National Park than by joining Broads Tours for a scheduled river trip. All trips include an entertaining live commentary; your skipper will explain the origins of the Broads as he points out the sights of interest including the abundance of wildlife. Light refreshments, licensed bar and toilet facilities are available on all river trips.

Seal Cruise

& Cley Norfolk Wildlife Trust - The Norfolk Coast becomes home to hundreds of thousands of birds that chose to spend their winter here. Learn more about these birds and hopefully experience the amazing sights and sounds of the thousands of Pink-Footed Geese as they come in to roost for the night.

Cley Marshes

We take a boat trip to see the seals in their natural environment basking on Blakeney Point. Later we visit Cley Marshes (Norfolk Wildlife Trust). Perched on the north Norfolk coast, NWT Cley Marshes has a well-deserved reputation as one of the UK's best bird watching sites.

Please note

Our Active Traveller Holidays itineraries often include walks which may be up to 1 - 1.5 miles long over uneven ground which may prove challenging for those customers with reduced and limited mobility.
