11 environment-friendly holidays for 2021

By Jane Dundord


From rewilding to marine conservation, these breaks for later in the year have a restorative effect on nature – and holidaymakers, too

The European Safari Company, the tour operator arm of Rewilding Europe, offers nature-based holidays that allow guests to learn about and contribute to conservation projects in Europe, and support a range of rewilding initiatives and eco-businesses.

The company has several new experiences for 2021, with small group departures on set dates as well as tailormade trips.

It recently added rewilding retreats, including a private five-day trip to Romania tracking bison on foot in the southern Carpathians, with a private guide (from €1,995pp, based on a group of four including meals and accommodation; three-day group trips from €325pp).

There’s also a four-day trip to Bulgaria’s Rhodope mountains, with kayaking on lakes, hiking and birdwatching (species such as the griffon vulture and black stork may be spotted). Available from April, from €340, depending on group size.
