Welcome to Wild and Green...

Red KiteWe offer ideas for enviromentally friendly, organic holidays and wildlife watching experiences in the UK and Ireland.

Wild and Green: eco friendly, green, organic and wildlife watching holiday inspiration her to help you get back to nature...Do you want to holiday with a green conscience? Prefer to opt for eco friendly holidays? Looking to discover the amazing wildlife of the UK in a low impact, user-friendly way? Then you’ve come to the right place because we have all the information right here so you can quickly and easily plan your next green holiday...

Loch Morlich, CairngormsLosing yourself in the countryside, the mountains or on deserted windswept beaches is, in itself, the perfect way to switch off from our busy everyday lives and get back to nature, appreciating the stunning scenery and savouring the blissful peace and quiet, but you can make your UK holiday even more special by:

  • Discovering the incredible wildlife in the UK, on the mainland and its surrounding islands. See seals in the Farne Islands off Northumbria, watch red squirrels in Cumbria, spot dolphins off the Cromarty Firth in Scotland, plus much, much more...

  • Staying in eco friendly accommodation, from B&B to cottage or camp site; whilst some have gone all out for the environment and are registered with the national Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS) others have made their own versions of eco pledges to run their business in a more environmentally friendly way...

    So, explore our sight, use our wildlife calendar to select what nature tourism you’d like to experience and then get choosing your green accommodation and find your wildlife expert travel guide ... all thanks to Wild & Green.
