2017 Prices and Tour Schedule: our 14th season
A 7 night, 6 day tour of Orkney (with a ‘day free’ for personal wishes) with half-board accommodation is £1,150 per person. This represents good value-for-money for a small group tour (maximum 6 persons), and is all-inclusive of the high quality accommodation, meals, transport within Orkney, and most important of all, the years of experience of your guide. All you have to do is to get here, and we will do the rest!
A note for our solo travellers about single supplements. Provided that you are happy to share a same sex large suite with your own room, but a shared bathroom, we don’t charge a single supplement for our Orkney tours. We have to charge a single supplement elsewhere as we are charged one.
Further discounts may be available for group bookings of 4 or more persons – please contact us for details.
Note that exact accommodation will depend on availability, and that a single supplement will apply on booking if applicable. Excludes transport costs to Orkney and any items purchased of a personal nature.

Iceland Tour - Available Spaces: 0
Orcadian Wildlife Iceland Tour Monday 3 July 2017 – Monday 10 July 2017: tour leader Steve Sankey. The cultural and biological connections between Orkney and Iceland are strong which is why several years ago we began our tours to Iceland. The Orkneyinga Saga, for example, a ripping yarn about the Orkney Viking Earls was written in Iceland. Our wintering great northern divers, Slavonian grebes, long-tailed ducks, pink-feet and greylag geese, and redwing all breed in Iceland. Our 2017 tour will visit the spectacular west, north and southern Iceland, visiting such sites as Snæfellsnes, Akureyri, Mývatn, Gullfoss and DyrhÓlaey. Iceland’s avifauna is not extensive, but includes some unforgettable birds such as Barrow’s goldeneye, harlequin duck, red-necked phalarope (at extremely close quarters!), Brunnich’s guillemot, sea eagle and gyr falcon. A half-day whale-watching tour is included off Snæfellsnes where we hope to see sperm whale and orca. Accommodation is in 3 separate locations. For a detailed itinerary please enquire here.
