Discover The Chatham Islands

Situated in the South Pacific Ocean, about 800km east of Christchurch, the Chatham Islands are New Zealand's most easterly region.



Your Chatham Islands adventure holiday will be a journey of discovery.  You will take a step back in time, to how life used to be.  Prepare to be surprised as these mysterious islands yield up their secrets.  Landscapes with volcanic peaks thrusting up out of rolling peatland, forest topped towering seacliffs, the vast expanse of Te Whanga Lagoon, endless kilometres of sandy beaches and the ever present ocean.

Meet the Chatham Islanders; a people who remain true to themselves while extending warm hositality to visitors.  Visit heritage sites and learn of our fascinating history shaped by years of isolation; Moriori, Maori, sealers, whalers, missionaries, farmers and settlers.

See for yourself the strange and beautiful Chatham Island plants.  Although some of our rare birds are protected on island sanctuaries, you can readily find others in bush, on roadsides and beaches.  Walk through our forests, expansive wetland and conservation areas.  Venture to Pitt Island, even more remote and surprisingly different from Chatham Island.

Adventure holidays don't get much better than this!
