Our exclusive combined tour of The Royal Albatross Colony and Larnach Castle offers the perfect blend of nature, culture and adventure and is the ideal way to spend your day ashore in Dunedin.
Brace yourself for the sight of magnificent albatross gliding gracefully through the air – and landing not-so-gracefully on the hillside at the end of Otago Peninsula. The Royal Albatross Colony offers a rare opportunity to visit the world’s only mainland home of the Northern Royal Albatross. You’ll hear incredible facts about their long flights and interesting habits, and learn about the conservation efforts in place to protect these impressive birds.
After a short lunch stop, the tour resumes with the chance to explore the historic Larnach Castle. Step back in time as you roam through lavishly-furnished rooms and wander the significant and beautifully landscaped gardens. You’ll hear stories of the castle’s past and experience the elegance and grandeur of this architectural gem from a bygone era.
We understand that time is of the essence for our cruise ship passengers. Our tours are meticulously planned to ensure you make the most of your day in Dunedin. With our attention to detail and commitment to exceptional service, you can relax and immerse yourself in all that Dunedin has to offer.
