Trip Information

Witness the world's most remarkable natural light show. The Southern lights, also known as the Aurora Australis!

Many people spend a small fortune to fly to Norway, Canada or the Arctic Circle to see the Northern lights, but you can see the same phenomena on a flight departing from Christchurch New Zealand. 

Join Aurora hunter and astrophysicist Dr Ian Griffin & a team of expert astronomers and fly into the night, to witness one of the world’s most magical natural phenomena. Taking off onboard an Air New Zealand Dreamliner, you'll head south over the Southern Ocean towards Antarctica, aiming for latitudes of 62 degrees south where the Aurora Australis is brightest. Far away from light pollution, high above the clouds and weather systems, you'll get to see a magical and unforgettable display with uninterrupted view of the southern lights. Along the way you will see constellations, stars, and planets as you have never witnessed them before.

Throughout the flights you will receive a full inflight catering service in both business and economy classes. Expert astronomers will provide information on route about how an aurora is created, as well as pointing out their favourite night sky objects. They will instruct you on how to photograph an aurora and we will have a photographer onboard to assist on how best to use your cameras.

  • Full bar service onboard
  • Charter flight aiming for latitudes of 62 degrees south
