New Zealand expedition cruise in Milford Sound

New Zealand expedition cruises

It’s no coincidence that New Zealand was chosen to represent Middle Earth in the film adaptation of 'The Lord of the Rings'; this is a wild and unfeasibly beautiful land of jagged mountains, bubbling hot springs and plunging fjords. Thrill seekers will find the rugged South Island particularly appealing, but the beautiful beaches and bays of the North Island shouldn’t be overlooked.

Our insight

Exploring New Zealand

New Zealand is an incredible place, offering a wealth of unforgettable travel experiences. Sail across the majestic Milford Sound; visit Maori communities and learn first hand about their customs and traditions; hike across mountains and glaciers; and encounter the unique wildlife of this far flung part of the world, including sperm whales, Hector's dolphins, albatross and the rare yellow-eyed penguin.

The North Island is home to the beautiful Bay of Islands, an archipelago made up of 144 idyllic islands, while Rotorua, located in the middle of an active goethermal zone, is an important centre of Maori culture.

New Zealand's South Island is known as the 'adventure capital of the world', with a ruggedly beautiful landscape that rewards exploration. Divided in two by the snow-capped Southern Alps, the South Island is characterised by dramatic fjords, vast glaciers and underground rivers. If you're feeling brave you can try bungee jumping in the place where it was invented, Queenstown, or you may prefer just to watch the less cautious throwing themselves off the Kawarau Bridge.

New Zealand can also be combined with an trip to the icy wastes of Antarctica, with expedition cruises departing from Invercargill and Dunedin.
