I spent a wonderful week touring Orkney with Steve and the birding group. Not only did we search out and observe plenty of birds and other wildlife but we also visited the archaeological sights and came away with a very good feel for Orkney. I fully recommend a holiday with Orcadian Wildlife for a relaxed, informative and entertaining time in... More

We went with high expectations and were not in the least disappointed. From the very north to the very south - and lots between - we wanted to see... More

We did the fall migration tour with Orcadian Wildllife in September of 2013. Steve, the owner and guide, took excellent care of us for the whole trip (7 days). While Steve keeps the groups small, for this trip we were actually the only ones who registered, so it was like a private tour. The tour was absolutely amazing, partly because... More
