What you will visit:

International Antarctic Center
Hands-on exhibits, video presentations, laser holograms, and stereo sound bring the frozen continent to life at this exciting museum. Follow the Antarctic seasons, witness the aurora Australis, and observe life in a penguin rookery. You will also be able to experience the temperatures of a real snow cave. During the Antarctic Centre experience, ride on the Hagglund, a tracked and amphibious vehicle used in Antarctica, and see the film "Ice Voyage" in the 4D EXTREME, a virtual cruise to Antarctica with unexpected excitement and adventure that truly puts you in the middle of Antarctic waters without leaving the comfort of your seat.

Royal New Zealand Air Force Museum (exclusive, behind the scenes tour)
One of New Zealand's premier attractions, the Royal New Zealand Air Force Museum exhibits the national collection of the Royal New Zealand Air Force and celebrates the country's aviation history. Discover a diverse and extensive showcase of historic aircraft, including the world's only Vickers Vildebeest biplane, aviation barracks dating back to World War I, rare military uniforms and medals, and recent restoration projects. Your guided tour enhances the experience by discussing the life and times of the people behind the planes. Time is allotted for independent exploration.

What you will see along the way:

The International Antarctic Center is located in the suburb of Harewood, Christchurch, and close to the Christchurch International Airport.


Allow some time to visit the Antarctic Shop with its extensive range of Antarctic and New Zealand souvenirs and clothing, or stop for refreshments in the Antarctic Café & Bar (at your own expense).
