Throughout his varied career, Tom Brereton has been heavily involved in wildlife research and nature conservation, but has also maintained a keen interest in natural history.

Naturetrek offer an eight-day "Armenia Butterflies of the Caucasus" tour lead by Tom Brereton, costing from £1,795 pp, based on two people sharing. This includes flights from London, all accommodation, meals, transport and, of course, the expert knowledge of Tom.

This exciting opportunity takes nature enthusiasts to the tiny country of Armenia, famous for more than 230 butterfly species that can be found there. The eclectic selection includes Caucasian, European and Asiatic species, which co-habit in the diverse habitats of the Armenian landscape. From semi-desert regions to mountain gorges, alpine meadows and ancient forests, every area offers the ideal conditions for a different species of butterfly.

While on a Naturetrek tour to Armenia participants will have ample opportunity to spot other wildlife as well, including birds, dragonflies and moths that fly in the daytime. The chance to explore this unique and, as yet, very much undiscovered country is not to be missed. With a host of stunning scenery, fantastic cultural highlights and the expert guiding of Tom Brereton, Armenia is a true treasure trove of delights just waiting to be discovered.
