New Zealand’s Heritage Expeditions now gives intrepid travelers the opportunity to experience a primeval world during new itineraries to the country’s remote Stewart Island.
The new eight-day Unseen Stewart Island adventure aboard the new 18-guest Heritage Explorer begins in June and offers intrepid travelers a rare insight to one of New Zealand’s most remote and pristine environments, one which acclaimed New Zealand botanist Leonard Cokayne famously described as being ‘an actual piece of the primeval world’.
The new eight-day expeditions will explore the quirky town center of Oban before setting sail for Paterson Inlet and historic Prices Inlet and Kaipipi Bay, predator-free bird sanctuary Ulva Island (guests’ best chance of seeing New Zealand’s national icon the kiwi bird during the day), Port Adventure, two days exploring the otherworldly landscape and waterways of rarely visited Port Pegasus and its towering granite domes of Gog and Magog; and remarkable Lords River.
The new voyage, which has departures on June 19 and October 3, 2021, joins the recently announced Fiordland, Marlborough Sounds, and Abel Tasman expeditions with upcoming itineraries exploring the Hauraki Gulf and Bay of Islands to be released shortly.
