Here’s where your adventure starts! We are that small little dot, 9 miles from Normandy, 60 miles from Portland and 60 miles from Brittany.  Alderney is in the perfect position to experience bird migration, visit some of the largest seabird colonies in southern Britain and explore an island full of natural wonders and steeped in history.

There are flights available directly from Southampton or you can transfer from a range of airports in the UK and Europe via Guernsey. Just so you know, Aurigny operates small planes and have an impeccable safety record – they really are Alderney’s mini cab service in the sky!  Aurigny operates the Alderney leg on all flights and you can reach Guernsey with Aurigny as well as Loganair and Blue Islands. It is also possible to get to Guernsey with Condor Ferries (too big to fit into Alderney’s harbour) and from Guernsey you have the option of The Little Ferry Company, a small fast boat which comes up several times a week. There are also several boat chartering options available with Lady Maris II., Access Challenger and soon the “Salty Blonde”.

We also recommend the Visit Alderney travel section for advice and the Alderney Visitor Information Centre offers great guidance for those needing it or +44 (0)1481 823737.
