Day 1 Bluff to Stewart Island
Easily reached by an hour long ferry from Bluff, your adventure starts on arrival in the quaint town of Oban. Nestled in picturesque Half Moon Bay and with a population of less than 400, this small fishing town boasts plenty of character and old world charm. Your home for the next two nights is the peaceful Stewart Island Lodge, which offers commanding views of the bay and warm, personalised service. This afternoon perhaps visit the town’s small museum and learn of the island’s rich history or simply relax in the pretty gardens, listening out for the call of the native kaka. As dusk sets in, return to the jetty for a cruise to Little Glory Cove. After disembarking, follow your guide along the forest and beach tracks under torchlight in search of brown kiwi foraging for their dinner, a truly memorable experience.
Day 2 Stewart Island
Rise early and swap tales of the previous night’s sightings with your fellow guests over breakfast, before enjoying a short, informative minibus tour of the island. The rest of your day is at leisure to venture out on one of the many scenic hiking trails or perhaps visit Ulva Island, a predatorfree island bird sanctuary where you can discover unique flora, rare birdlife and beautiful vistas. Enjoy a meal at the local pub before retiring to the lodge. As you sip a glass of wine on the outdoor deck, you may even glimpse the ethereal Aurora Australis which often appears in these dark southern skies.
Day 3 Stewart Island to Bluff
Wake up to ocean views and enjoy a final morning, before returning to the South Island.
