Destinations

Azores

This Portuguese mid-Atlantic archipelago is a haven of calm. Lush volcanic islands are surrounded by ocean that is home to an exceptional variety of whales and dolphins. No fewer than 26 species have been recorded in recent years, and almost any outing usually reveals six to eight different species.

Finland

One of Europe’s last remaining wildernesses – a mosaic of taiga forest, crystalline lakes, peat bogs, and pine heathland – stretches from Finland into Russia. This undisturbed countryside is the best in Europe for viewing brown bears and makes a perfect refuge for its 430 bird species, 100,000 moose and around 200 wolves.

Iceland

Situated on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, where the Atlantic and Arctic Oceans merge, this island nation has the world’s northernmost capital city. The sparsely populated interior consists largely of a plateau covered by mountains and glaciers, with areas of intense volcanic activity, and the surrounding seas are rich in marine life.

Romania

Located on the Black Sea at the crossroads of southeastern Europe, Romania has a vast area of undisturbed forest. A good indicator of its integrity is the presence of fauna that includes 60% of Europe's brown bears and 40% of its wolves. The Danube Delta also demonstrates exceptional biodiversity, with over 300 species of bird.

Scotland

On the east coast of the Highlands, the Moray Firth is home to one of just three UK populations of bottlenose dolphins. Further north, the seas around Shetland are one of the best places in the British Isles to see marine mammals, while huge colonies of seabirds create a unique spectacle.

Sweden

Despite being the EU’s third largest country, with only 9.5 million inhabitants – most of whom live in the southern cities – population density is low. As you head north farmland changes to forest, which covers some 65% of Sweden, and – along with the abundant rivers and lakes – is ideal for wildlife.
