Welcome to Antarctica, Christchurch!
With mysterious deep seas, unique creatures and endless icy plains, Antarctica is a land like no other. A fragile place that has drawn the bravest explorers from far and wide, leaving all who visit with a passion to protect this stunning rarity.
The International Antarctic Centre transports a slice of this astounding continent to Christchurch, with a range of immersive experiences that allow everyday visitors to see, touch, feel and fall in love with Antarctica.
Brave an Antarctic storm, go off-road in a Hagglund, befriend a husky, mingle with the penguins, experience Antarctica from all four dimensions and leave with a head full of knowledge, a heart full of love and inspiration to take action, just like the explorers before you.
