Guides Iris and Peter have between them over 70 years combined "Island" experience. Peter was on-time Forest Ranger in Charge of both Ulva and Stewart Island. Iris was a foundation Trustee of Ulva Island Open Sanctuary. Our Ulva Island Discovery tour give guests an insight into one of the most pristine parts of New Zealand. Ulva Island was cleaned of both introduced deer and rats many years ago and it's primeval forest is rapidly becoming a glimpse into a natural world before people. Ulva is both a birders and botanists paradise, but equally a place where you and I can enjoy a beautiful forest and it's bird-life.

We like to introduce our guests to the very special place New Zealand is, how the Eco-systems developed without mammals into a country of birds and how Ulva Island reflects that, now introduced mammals have been removed. Delicate native orchids crowd the temperate rain forest and the native birds are quite fearless. Our groups are small, generally 6 or less per guide as we firmly believe larger groups seriously degrade the experience. Your guides will be either Peter or Iris, we do not hire staff, and the tour takes around 4 hours. The walk is easy and only around 1.5 k, as we really don't like to hurry. Ulva Island is a place to savor. We welcome disabled guests, as long as we can get them on and off the boat for the 10 minute trip to Ulva.

While our "Sails" Island life scenic road tour explores the history of Stewart Island we look more closely at the life styles from days of early Maori, through the Sealers and Whalers and early European settlement up to the present time. And while doing this we are visiting the bays and lookouts around the 28 kilometers of road. Our bus is small, limiting guests to 6, and like our Ulva Island walks we encourage questions and discussion with our guests. The tour takes around two hours.

For parties larger than 6 we will have 2 guides.

Price Includes:
- transfers to and from accommodation.
