Take a small ship cruise to the beautiful "forgotten islands," part of the nation of New Zealand, on the southern shore. This small group of inhabited islands is about 200 kilometers from the closest coastal point of New Zealand. The total surface area of these small islands is 3.5 kilometers squared, and they were named the Snares because they're a shipping hazard. The Snares have no introduced species and are a pristine wildlife haven with the Snares crested penguin, the New Zealand fur seal, the New Zealand sea lion, petrels, and Shearwaters. Additionally there are many endemic plants on the island including the Olearia lyallii, the Stilbocarpa robusta, and the rare Lepidium oleraceum. Contact our travel specialists to start planning your ideal trip to Snares today!
