The little island of Alderney is a naturalist’s paradise, offering a rich and magical blend of manmade and natural landscape, some tremendous chefs offering fresh sea food and local produce and the chance to explore an island that is a neighbour to UK shores.
We can give you access to some of the world’s most exciting and dramatic wildlife destinations through our travel partner and their “Celebration of Wildlife” trips to Kenya, Zambia, Rwanda, Galapagos and India. But much closer to home also exists a wonderfully wide variety of wildlife although less exotic, still set in glorious surroundings. We feel that this will appeal to those of you who are unable to always commit the time and finance to the more far flung destinations we offer.
During the five night, six day trip you will be hosted by renowned local expert naturalists, explore Alderney by electric bike and take leisurely walks along cliff top paths revealing spectacular coastal scenery; beach and woodland walks; in vehicles to the interior of the island, and by boat to witness the spectacular Gannet colonies on Les Etacs and Ortac, between them hosting over 8,000 pairs – 2% of the world’s population.
Your home during the stay in Alderney will be the four star deluxe Braye Beach Hotel which is situated right on the beach and in most people’s opinion, offers a five star service and to underline this, was voted 6th Best Hotel in the UK in the 2014 Trip Advisor Traveler’s Choice Awards. All guests will have spacious and extremely comfortable sea facing rooms, we shall eat overlooking the beach whenever weather permits, and chef will prepare any sea bass or other fish we may catch on our travels! Should the weather be inclement we have the use of the hotel’s private cinema which boasts 19 big leather chairs in which to relax!
