International Antarctic Centre
Feel transported from Christchurch to Antarctica in this incredible world of ice, ambition and endeavour.
On your visit to the International Antarcic Centre, you will learn about the International Antarctic Programme and life in Antarctica. Jump in the storm room and experience -18°Celsius wind chill, or buckle up and hold on aboard the Hägglund, an amazing all-terrain amphibious Antarctic vehicle that’s been built to conquer the rough terrain on the ice.
For those preferring a quieter experience, watch the kororā (little blue penguin) climb over rocks and dive for food, or meet the intelligent canines of Antarctic exploration in the Husky Zone.
