Kids love the International Antarctic Centre, Christchurch

Christchurch is a favourite destination for family travellers – for so many reasons. The International Antarctic Centre is one!

Kids on Ice

Kids just love adventure! Here in Christchurch we take them straight to Antarctica – without so much as a stopover. The city’s International Antarctic Centre (IAC), located across from Christchurch International Airport, is the city’s leading visitor attraction. IAC delivers a fun, exciting and interactive experience of Antarctica without even stepping foot on the icy continent!

The IAC’s outdoor Hagglund ride is the only one of its kind in the world. Visitors climb aboard the genuine “as used in Antarctica” all-terrain vehicle which takes them on an exciting outdoor ride around a genuine working Antarctic campus.

The new 4D EXTREME Theatre features an exciting 3D movie, “Ice Voyage”, complete with falling snow, water spray, wind, lighting,bubbles and seat movement.

The World’s Best Antarctic Attraction is one of so many reasons that families love Christchurch.
