Why Sub-Antarctic Islands: The Sub-Antarctic islands south of New Zealand – Snares, Auckland, Macquarie and Campbell are so unique and rich in diverse fauna and flora that they are protected as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The islands are havens for sea birds and huge colonies of penguins and seals.
Climate: The Sub-Antarctic islands have a cool temperate climate but are subject to frequent storms, high winds and rough seas. On sunny summer days they can be very mild, but the weather tends to be unpredictable and can change at any moment.
Combine With: A voyage to Antarctica.
Getting There: Most voyages depart from Invercargill in New Zealand.
