A Summer escape is calling.. to Ramsey Island. Pack your bag and retreat with us for the day to one of the most beautiful nature reserves in the UK.

Ramsey is packed full of wildlife with a variety of visiting and breeding seabirds, and home to many ocean habitats. With the amount of daily visitors limited to the island, Ramsey offers an unspoilt, picturesque, quiet escape. Trust me when I say you will return from this island feeling relaxed, restored, and reconnected with nature, and yourself. 

 

RELAX, ROAM & RESET

Together we will board the ferry boat from St Justinian with Thousand Island Expeditions to Ramsey, where we will be welcomed by the wardens of the island and given a brief introductory talk about Ramsey and things to look out for on your visit. 

The morning will be spent practicing yoga on the Northern end of the island with a fantastic view of the St Davids peninsula, immersed by beautiful wildlife. Following yoga, it's time for some refreshments. Enjoy a refreshing beverage from the small island shop and some delicious homemade cake on us, to fuel you ahead of a walking filled afternoon.

We will spend the remainder of the day guiding you around the full loop of the island. We highly recommend you bring a pair of binoculars to keep a close eye on visiting and breeding sea birds, as well as various sightings at sea! By the end of the day you will be feeling nourished, relaxed & restored.
