Holidays & Days Out

Here’s a summary of what’s on offer to the end of 2015, including examples of our day trips.   If you can’t find what you’re looking for, contact us for other day trips and bespoke breaks.  Do visit the Welsh Wildlife Breaks website again  – we’ll be adding to our schedules at regular intervals throughout the year.

Gwent Levels / Severn Estuary

Famous for intertidal mudflats, reed beds and mistletoe, the Gwent Levels offer amazing wildlife, like this reed bunting.  Habitat for otters and water voles, you may just be lucky enough to spot one.  Close by are woodlands, reservoirs and the beautiful Wye Valley, with their own abundant wildlife.

Mid Wales and Talyllyn Lake


Wildlife-watching in the lakes and valleys around the Talyllyn area of Mid Wales, from wildfowl and woodland birds – like this pied flycatcher –  to red kites and ravens, and maybe even one of the famous Dyfi ospreys!  Shy mammals abound, such as hares, otters and badgers, and smaller carnivores such as weasels, stoats and polecats.  Follow in the footsteps of Springwatch with a fabulous holiday in this wonderful area of Wales.

West Wales and Welsh Islands

Skomer Island – green cliffs burgeon with puffins, ledges packed with guillemots and razorbills, stacks of kittiwakes in the spring and the unbelievable noise and spectacle of thousands of nocturnal shearwaters.  Grassholm Island and its gannets, seafaring shearwaters, Ramsey Island, home to peregrine, chough, lapwing and deer.  In the autumn grey seals are pupping on the beaches and some young auks can still be seen on the sea. The lovely Teifi Estuary with Cardigan island standing sentry, and moving north there is the wonderful coastline and the famous dolphins of Cardigan Bay.  Further north still is the Dyfi Estuary at Ynys Hir, past home of Springwatch, and close by are the Dyfi ospreys.  What an amazing wealth of experiences!  On our Pembrokeshire Taster, you’ll experience the best wildlife Pembrokeshire has to offer, and Go West offers all this plus wildlife further north to Cardigan Bay and the Dyfi.
