Discover the wild and untouched beauty of New Zealand's Fiordlands and Subantarctic Islands. Set sail on a 15-day expedition cruise with an exceptional itinerary and allow yourself to be transported to another world where the wildlife rules and you are but a visitor.

Explore the South West World Heritage Area home to majestic and spectacular Milford, Dusky and Doubtful Sounds. Experience a Zodiac® cruise in the fiords and try to spot the rare Fiordland Crested penguin. View breeding populations of New Zealand, Antarctic and Subantarctic Fur Seals, New Zealand Sea Lions and Southern Elephant Seals. Explore the Snares, home to more nesting seabirds than the entire realm of the British Isles. Thanks to Ponant's small capacity ships, you can dock in exclusive ports in preserved locations. Onboard, the limited number of guests means that everyone can enjoy special moments and feel as though they are on a private yacht.
