Exploring the world looking for the most beautiful experiences of nature, the fanciest observations and the most spectacular images: that is what keeps us going. In order to optimally enjoy a trip, a good preparation and the best material is essential. STARLING therefore works closely together with various partners. They’re happy to offer our STARLING travelers extra benefits.

Heritage Expeditions

The New Zealand travel agency Heritage Expeditions is a regular partner for our small-scale expedition cruises. Heritage Expeditions has been specializing in guided boat tours to various isolated regions of our planet for 30 years, where biodiversity is nothing short of amazing. Their experienced, English-speaking crew provides top guidance. An expedition with Heritage usually means sailing with the Spirit of Enderby, one of the world’s most famous boats for nature-oriented (Ant)arctic trips. By choosing Heritage, STARLING only selects the very best routes and ensures a transparent and pleasant travel experience from start to finish. Heritage and STARLING: a top team!
