Auckland Islands, sub-antarctic New Zealand

I visited the Auckland Islands in 2010 and 2011, working as a biologist guide, lecturer and zodiac driver, as part of the expedition team on board Orion.

This island group includes Disappointment Island and Enderby Island. 

The New Zealand subantarctic islands have some unusual endemic flowers. Some of the bigger ones are known as 'megaherbs'. If you walk across the island on the boardwalk, you should get some nice and close views of these special plants.

Thinking of doing expedition travel after everything has calmed down? I do a lot of my guiding and lecturing work on Silversea.
