Amazing Animals in Awesome Autumn

Although many people think that spring is the ideal season for a wildlife watching holiday, autumn is also an exciting time to take your trip.

This great season marks a time when many animals start preparing for their winter hibernation meaning you’re more likely to see them foraging; you may even catch some creatures mid migration!

Our amazing selection of wildlife holidays invites you to track wolves in Sweden, see Brown Bears in Finland, search for stunning whales in Norway, encounter majestic Polar Bears in Canada or head to Africa and embark on the safari of a lifetime.

Whether you’re travelling alone, as a couple, part of a group or family, autumn is a great time to take a wildlife watching holiday.
