Antarctic Centre

Main Image
Christchurch is the major link to the Antarctic Continent where the majority of flights depart for the ice. As such the Antarctic Centre located near the airport is the Worlds best Antarctic attraction. Here you can 'get up close and personal with the world's smallest penguin'.

The photo opposite shows the room where a snow and ice 'experience' can be had complete with an antarctic gale force wind.

You can take a ride on the Hagglund tractor which is one of the main forms of transport on the ice.
