Sadly at this present time we are currently postponing all tours up to and including August 2020. We will review on a regular basis, taking the advice being posted by the UK Government's Foreign and Commonwealth Office Travel Advice. Where full payment had already been made prior to this lock down we will offer to transfer that balance to another tour later in the year or the same tour in 2021.

I appreciate the understanding of those that I have already spoken to and their good wishes for the future.

It will take sometime for things to come back to some semblance of the past but I hope that we all heed the advice being given we will get through this and once again enjoy the freedom of a birdwatching holiday.

With best wishes to you all – Mark Finn


Holidays with Birdwatching Breaks

Our holidays are friendly and exciting and run by professional guides with a passion for birding and natural history. Our guides have a professional background from bodies like the RSPB or other conservation organisations. On overseas tours we use local ornithologists who are highly experienced in the country they operate and work in. Our groups are based on a ratio of eight clients to one leader. All tours have inspection trips before we offer them to our clients.

We cater for all abilities of birders from beginners to those with more experience and clients who wish to visit more adventurous countries around the globe in their quest of birds. Our tours range from short breaks in Europe to weeks in Scotland and Eastern Europe. Generally speaking, African and Asian tours are up to 15 days and those to South America of 16-28 days duration. To participate in our tours you need to have a reasonable degree of fitness for the tour you select. If you wish to know more about a tour we have bird lists and tour reports or, in the case of inspection trips, a general information package.

On booking your Birdwatching Breaks holiday we send you all the relevant information including flight details, accommodation, maps, what to take with you, health and visa regulations, titles of field guides and where to obtain them.

In 2020 we offer holidays in Europe, Africa, Asia and Australasia, The Americas, and in Scotland through Black Isle Birding.
