We believe that the best botanical tours are the ones where you not only get to see a dazzling variety of flowers in their natural environments - but the ones where the group leaders share the same passion for the natural world you do.

All of our Ramblers Worldwide Holidays botanical tours are with experienced leaders; some of whom are botanists and some are keen gardeners with an interest in flowers and plants around the world. Spring and early summer are ideal times to enjoy blooming landscapes. A flower holiday with us follows an unhurried pace and spans a range of walking grades, from leisurely to moderate.

Springtime in Minorca gives you the opportunity to discover some of the first wild orchids, purple sage or even a prickly pear! Whilst in Southern Greece, our beautiful walking trails are abundant in wild flowers such as anemones or orchids. For those travelling further afield for botanical tours, why not try South Africa to see protea, rooibos and sparaxis?

Wherever you decide to travel, you’ll be able to enjoy wonderful walking, and a flower holiday that’s a perfect fit for your passion. Take a look at our selection below, and find the journey that’s right for you.
