Chatham Islands Tour - CIX

You are invited to join our popular “small group” Chatham Islands tour, exploring the unique flora, fauna and landscapes that make these islands so very special. The Chatham Islands are New Zealand’s easternmost outpost. The international dateline stretches around the Chatham's, so it is the world's first permanently inhabited place to welcome in each new day.

The isolation of the Chatham's has created a unique island lifestyle and society, many locals descend from Moriori genealogy.

The remote location of the Chatham's has resulted in endemic flora and fauna, found nowhere else in the world.

Discover the rich Moriori history and culture, including Nunukus law, combined with other early settler history, tree and rock carvings, dramatic scenery, a unique opportunity to explore New Zealand's isolated outer islands and enjoy true country-style hospitality, for a truly memorable holiday experience.AND, as with all our tours, If it’s in the itinerary, its included.
