Antarctica

Sometimes referred to as ‘the heart of Antarctica’, the Ross Sea region is the last great unspoiled part of the world’s oceans. To date there has only been minimal exploitation, and to enter this region of Antarctica is a privilege, with only a few hundred people able to visit each year. The East Antarctic coastline is some of the ...

Bordering the Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean, New Zealand comprises three main islands including the North Island, South Island and Stewart Island with numerous smaller islands and ...

Russian Far East

At Heritage Expeditions we have had a long association with the Russian Far East. Since 1993 when we began chartering our ship from this region, we listened to our crew’s accounts of the magnificent wildlife and wilderness so eight years ago decided to see the Far East of Russia for ourselves. The stories were true! The Russian Far East ...

South Pacific

The South Pacific islands known as Melanesia lie to the north and east of Australia. Together the three independent nations and two dependant colonies form one of the most culturally complex regions in the world, with some 1,293 languages spoken across the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, New Caledonia and New Guinea. It is also a region of great antiquity with ...

Subantarctic Islands

The Subantarctic Islands are tiny havens for some of the most abundant and unique wildlife on the planet. They lie in the cool temperate or Subantarctic Zone to the south and east of New Zealand in the great southern ocean that encircles Antarctica. This is a windswept and at times forbidding swath of sea, surprising in its fecundity. The Subantarctic ...

The expedition was just FABULOUS!!!!! Rodney is a terrific leader and very professional in his role, with a real passion for the wilderness. The staff were outstanding, helpful, gregarious and we all thoroughly enjoyed the lectures and the sharing of experiences. Food was excellent! Doctor Amama is a true delight! I hope I have an ...

I learned so much about the history, fauna and flora of the islands.

Margaret, New Zealand (past expeditioner)
Everyone did his or her job so well, what a team. I admired Nathan and Adam enormously, watching them take a cart load of (mainly) oldies and keep them safe whilst showing them such special places, was a pleasure.

Lou
The most awesome thing was climbing up the cliff at Landing Rock on my hands and knees, hanging onto a rope.

CAMPBELL ISLAND We arrived at Campbell Island to a sunny day (although we had been warned that Campbell Island can and does have 4 seasons in one day). Luckily for us, this wasn't one of them and we enjoyed beautiful sunshine for our walk up Coll Lyall. This is where the MegaHerbs are situated ...

I’ve always been a traveller. I travel with little anticipation but a lot of research. The Kermadecs delivered much enjoyment – other people and learning from them, the physical aspect with the bush and understanding the geological basis for the activity we see. It’s been a great trip.

Martin
I was especially delighted at the freedom you gave us on shore to do our “own thing”. Each day was such a treat.

Mary
