Stay at Stewart Island Lodge for three restful nights and spend two full days with expert guides discovering the wild, natural beauty of both Stewart and Ulva Island. You will get up close and personal with a superb array of birdlife and pelagic marine life and Stewart Island is also home the brown kiwi, said to outnumber humans on the island.  Whilst it remains elusive, you have an excellent chance of spotting one during an evening twilight tour.

For bird lovers the tick list is remarkable and alongside the brown kiwi it also includes the bellbird, tui, kaka, tomtit and saddleback plus many more. The marine birdlife is no less abundant with at least 8 species of albatross including wandering, Northern royal, Southern royal and Buller's alongside yellow-eyed, blue and Fiordland crested penguins. Petrels, shearwaters and fulmars are also found in strong numbers.
