For more than 35 years, Heritage Expeditions has pioneered conservation-driven small ship expedition cruises to some of the wildest, least-explored and biologically rich regions on the planet including Antarctica, Russia's Far East and Australia & New Zealand's Subantarctic Islands. Whether you're a twitcher, photographer, wildlife enthusiast, conservationist, or simply an adventurous spirit, Heritage Expeditions offer an unparalleled travel experience.
Heritage Expeditions operates its own Polar Research vessels Spirit of Enderby and Akademik Shokalskiy on expeditions to Antarctica, the Subantarctic Islands and the Russian Far East. Each authentic, small-ship expedition cruise is meticulously planned and led ensuring travellers (up to 50 per voyage) maximise every opportunity they have to learn and experience as much as possible about the region, while at the same time minimising the impact of their visit.
Heritage Expedition's flagship Spirit of Enderby is a fully ice-strengthened expedition vessel. Built in 1984 for polar and oceanographic research, it is perfect for expedition travel. Carrying just 50 passengers, Heritage Expeditions is one of the few remaining companies still offering true, small ship exploration.
