Event Details

Join Sir Graham and Lady Raewyn Henry, Peter Hillary, and other special hosts on a once in a lifetime expedition to Antarctica in March.

This nine-night all-inclusive luxury cruise onboard the brand new World Navigator promises to be an extraordinary experience. You will be traveling in the company of like-minded individuals while enjoying the perfect balance of five-star service and adventure.

Antarctica is one of the most remote and pristine environments on Earth, yet it is also one of the most vulnerable to climate change. The melting of glaciers and ice sheets in Antarctica are contributing to rising sea levels, which threatens coastal communities and ecosystems around the world. By visiting Antarctica and seeing the effects of climate change, people can better understand the magnitude of the problem and the need for immediate action.

The World Navigator, one of the newest and most luxurious vessels in the polar regions, is equipped with leading technological innovation to bring you closer than ever to the stunning snow-covered peaks, colossal blue glaciers, and roaming icebergs of Antarctica. The ship is also one of the most environmentally friendly at sea, featuring a clean-burning hybrid electric-hydro propulsion and anchorless positioning systems.

As part of this unique voyage, you will enjoy gourmet meals and an open bar, plus as many 7th-continent landings as possible. All cabins feature luxurious amenities, free unlimited wifi, complimentary 24-hour room service, and breathtaking ocean views.

Chartered exclusively for New Zealanders & Australians, this trip is timed to coincide with the height of the whale watching season and abundant wildlife sightings. In addition to curated activities such as hiking and kayaking, you will have the chance to witness the extraordinary beauty and wildlife of Antarctica.

To make this journey even more seamless, the package includes two nights in Buenos Aires and a privately-chartered plane from Buenos Aires to Ushuaia, ensuring a comfortable and effortless arrival and departure experience.

Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to explore one of the most remote and magical places on the planet in the company of New Zealand & Australia’s finest legends, and learn more about the need for climate change action.

A range of cabin types are available, subject to availability. Fortis Events can also assist with flights and any additional travel before or after the expedition.
