Greenwings is the only UK company which genuinely specialises 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 one of the very the best experts in Europe, Dr Martin Warren, ex CEO of Butterfly Conservation and now working with BC Europe, celebrated expert & wildlife illustrator Richard Lewington, author & naturalist Patrick Barkham, former European Butterfly Group (EBG) chair Dr Simon Spencer, expert & author on South African butterflies Steve Woodhall, expert & author of ‘Life Cycles of British & Irish ButterfliesPeter Eeles plus Roger Gibbons, an expert on the butterflies in France. In addition we have our own rising stars such as David Moore and Ben Greenaway, who lead numerous tours and have excellent butterfly knowledge and guiding skills. Look out for the tours they lead – you won’t be disappointed!

We use our specialist knowledge alongside a strong network of international 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.

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 a proportion 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!

We are also proud to sponsor the superb UK Butterflies website, run by Peter Eeles.
