SPECIAL 2ND PERSON 1/2 PRICE

Recognised as one of the world’s greatest biodiversity “hotspots” New Zealand’s Subantarctic Islands delight visitors with 126 bird species (5 of which cannot be found elsewhere in the word), Albatross, penguins, sea lions, seals and more.  Beginning in Dunedin, you’ll have the opportunity to admire the beautiful South Island as you meander amidst the fiords of Milford, Doubtful and Dusky Sounds, home of some of New Zealand’s most spectacular and dramatic scenery.  Then head further south for an adventure to the Subantarctic where you will encounter the remote islands of Macquarie, Bounty and more.  This is where you will find the masses of birdlife including albatross and many species of penguins.  Wildlife is abundant on these islands with sealions and seals en masse and the environment is so pristine that landings are not permitted on some islands.  In fact, far fewer people visit these islands than summit Mt Everest each year!  Be sure to pack a good camera for this really is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
