Ulva Island Tours

This isolated island off the coast of New Zealand is a Mecca for birders thanks a predator-free environment that supports dozens of species of winged creatures that can no longer thrive on the mainland. Visitors will find South Island saddlebacks, yellowhead and Steward Island robins, southern brown kiwis, red-fronted parakeets and even the South Island kaka forest parrot. Travelers can explore the breathtaking landscapes that include unique plant species and beautiful flowers and get an up close look at portions of the island that endangered yellow-eyed penguins use as their breeding grounds. Guided island walking tours are available with expert naturalists who can point out rare birds and unique plants on a stroll through the lush landscapes of Ulva Island.

Practical Info

The island is located inside the Paterson Inlet and measures about 2.5 km long. It is easily accessible from nearby Stewart Island.
