Price Guide: Britain Explored designs a bespoke package for our guests and as a result it’s not possible to quote prices before we know what our guests want to do. However, an indicative price for an all-in fishing vacation for seven days including all accomodation, meals, transport, guided fishing, driver and other expenses, excepting only travel to and from the UK, a typical package would be around £1,500 per person. This assumes there is top quality fishing for five days, other activities for non anglers and that a good standard of hotel is selected with two sharing a room. But the flexibility allows the package to be based around any level of fishing and accomodation and the base price would be around £1,000 per week all inclusive.
