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 ...

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 ...

I recently returned from my second fantastic trip with Heritage Expeditions. From July 10 to 24, 2017 on "Chukotka, Where Russia's Day Begins." We cruised on the Spirit of Enderby along the Russian Arctic coastline making frequent Zodiac landings including the ship breaking through the ice to Wrangel Island. The staff and guides work ...

Did Rodney tell you about the amazing Zodiac rides to see the Walrus haul-out? It was totally incredible and he seriously enhanced the experience by using his hydrophone and letting us hear it too.

Helena
What an amazing trip! We visited remote communities that had rarely and in some cases never had visitors before. The welcomes were amazing and it was a real privilege being able to be part of such an experience. This was our 2nd trip with Heritage and it exceeded expectations. They are a true expedition company ...

Hello Lorna, I am just checking in to say -- my trip to the subantartic Islands was just amazing!! and I just loved the fields of mega herbs and the wildlife. There were times when there were no words to describe it all.One highlight was the day I got to the top of the board ...

I found the whole experience most exhilarating. I learnt a lot - met very interesting people - had great food and was well taken care of by everyone. Thank you ever so much.

I just arrived in Belgium but my heart,love and memories are still in Russia's Far East. What an incredible trip! This truly must be one of the last wildernesses in the world. The visit to Yankicha Island was a life changing experience. More than a million Crested Aukletsn accompanied by the truly bizar ...

Dominique Verbelen
This was a trip of a lifetime and I was immensely inspired and grateful to have had the opportunity to join this Wrangel Island cruise. Seeing the polar bears (and small cub!) on the floating ice was a sensational experience, and one I think about often. And, as this was my third voyage with you ...

Nothing can compare with actually being there and seeing everything as it actually is.

I am so sorry it has taken me this long to write to you all and thank you for the most extraordinary experience of my life. I traveled with Samuel, Agnes, Helen, David, Andrew, Connor, Matt and Dr Pat and Leanne of course, to the Ross Sea back in February this year. My husband James ...

A quest of a life time was realised when we saw the rare Magenta Petrel at sea. To get close to such rare and majestic species is a true privilege.
