Living Islands offers a unique way of seeing an island community living in harmony with its natural and historic heritage.

Programme 2016

The funding for the Living Islands project ended at the end of December 2015. States of Alderney are now taking over the initiative and will continue to promote Alderney’s wildlife & heritage as part of Visit Alderney.
This website will stay on-line until January 2017 but we already invite you to visit Visit Alderney’s website where you will find many information about wildlife and heritage on Alderney but also about events, accommodation, special deals and many others topics.
Many thanks for your visit and your support, see you soon on Visit Alderney website!

Over 100 walks, talks, boat tours and events to discover Alderney’s rich wildlife and history!

Living Islands, with the Alderney Wildlife Trust and the Alderney Society, proposes a regular programme of activities and many special events to discover all the treasures of Alderney.

Let’s explore the islands together!
