Christchurch-based small ship expedition cruise company Heritage Expeditions has created the perfect escape for New Zealander’s itching for an international holiday experience without having to leave the country.
Venturing beyond Milford Sound, the new voyages will see the family-owned and operated company returning to where they first pioneered expedition cruising back in 1985 – the primordial majesty of Fiordland’s remote coves. The expeditions also include the time-forgot rawness of Stewart Island/Rakiura and the option of an unforgettable wildlife safari Zodiac cruise UNESCO World Heritage-listed The Snares.
Guests will also have the opportunity to learn about the rich history and conservation efforts of these wild and rugged destinations, experience Fiordland from above with an optional helicopter extension and observe the antics of endemic Snares Crested Penguins navigating the treacherous ‘Penguin Slide’.
