Discover Saint Helena

St Helena

St Helena has been very well known as one of the most remote Islands in the world. This is due to its inaccesibility as its was only thanks to the RMS St Helena that made an appearance every couple of weeks that potential visitors could visit the island. In October 2017, the first commercial flights started and there is now a weekly flight to and from the island. 

Discover the island of St Helena with us on this week long tour that includes a knowledgable guide. Visit some extraordinary sights and views. The Island is teaming in history from the boer prisoners of war as to the exiled Napoleon Bonaparte. Wildlife is also fascinating as the island has some 455 invertebrate species with the opertunity to spot some rare birds such as the moorhen and the Fairy White Terns. You will also see colonies of Noddies, Boobies, petrels and Terns.
