About the Festival
The Orkney Nature Festival has been running annually since 2013, and has given thousands of people the opportunity to enjoy - and be inspired by - the magnificent Orcadian wildlife. Events have included cruises around some of the largest cliffs in Britain, nature photography classes with local experts, guided walks amongst choruses of birdsong, and much more.
Reaching more and more people every year, the week-long celebration has quickly become a fixture in Orkney's bustling calendar of festivals. This year, we aim to have more ways to get involved than ever before, so keep checking back to find out what's coming up.
The Nature Festival is collaborative project organised by the local RSPB Scotland team on behalf of partners around Orkney, including businesses, community groups and individual volunteers. Join us in celebrating and sharing wild Orkney.
