The Forgotten Islands: Sub Antarctica
Venturing from New Zealand's far south, we voyage even further to the remote islands known as The Snares, visit Carnely Harbour and Enderby Island in the Auckland Islands group, and Campbell Island. These are remote, unpopulated islands, in New Zealand's Southern Ocean. They are UNESCO World Heritage sites, and a very limited number of people are allowed to visit each year - why not be one of the privileged few!
Journey on the ice-strengthened ship, Spirit of Enderby, with 50 like minded travellers to these islands full of unique wildllife opportunities, and be surprised by some of the colourful wildflowers and mega herbs that grow on these rugged landscapes. Explore dramatic coastlines by zodiac in search of endemic Snares Crested Penguins, Fernbirds and Tomtits. Walk the forests and hills of the Auckland and Campbell Islands, breeding grounds to Albatross, the endemic Campbell Island Flightless Teal, Snipe and more.
