Chatham Islands - A Land Apart

10 Days - Akademik Shokalskiy

Discover amazing endemic wildlife, meet the locals and experience conservation in action as we spend 10 days journeying through the incredibly-diverse archipelagos of the Chatham, Antipodes and Bounty Islands. Their first inhabitants, the Moriori, called them ‘Rekhou' (misty skies), the Europeans who rediscovered them in 1791 named them the Chatham Islands after their ship, while Maori, who didn't settle the islands until 1835, called them ‘Wharekauri'.

Today, most New Zealanders know them as the last place mentioned in their daily weather forecast, but some might also know them as the home of the endangered Black Robin.
