Butterfly Holidays

Greenwings is the only UK company specialising in butterfly and moth watching holidays.

We work with the very best butterfly guides to ensure guests receive the finest and most accurate information. These include Tristan Lafranchis, considered by most as the best in Europe, Dr Martin Warren, recently retired CEO of Butterfly Conservation (now working with BC Europe), celebrated expert & wildlife illustrator Richard Lewington, author & naturalist Patrick Barkham, European Interests Group (EIG) chair Dr Simon Spencer, expert & author on South African butterflies Steve Woodhall, expert & author of ‘Butterflies of The World’ Adrian Hoskins plus Roger Gibbons, an expert on the butterflies in France. We also use our specialist knowledge and strong network of contacts to select locations rich in butterflies. It is not uncommon to enjoy 100-125+ species during one of our European trips, without the need to rush or travel too far.

We are also conservationists at heart, thus are corporate members of Butterfly Conservation, a charity we support in a number of different ways, for example offering a holiday prize for their fundraising raffle. We also donate 10% of the profits from every butterfly holiday to the charity. So by joining a Greenwings holiday you are also helping support the conservation of butterflies, moths and their environments!
