OVERVIEW

BOOK AND SAVE: 10% DISCOUNT ON ALL SEATS - GREAT CHIMU SALE EXCLUSIVE OFFER! 

Join us on the adventure of a lifetime to experience Antarctica in a day on an exciting scenic flight. On your Antarctica flight from Brisbane, you’ll depart early in the morning and return late in the evening, giving you ample opportunity to see the great white continent unlike ever before. From epic icebergs to jagged mountain ranges, the beauty and complexity of Antarctica are yours to discover. Even if you’ve cruised to Antarctica before, a flight gives you a much greater appreciation of the sheer size of Antarctica compared to your experience on a ship.

As you’re welcomed aboard your comfortable Qantas aircraft, meet your team of Chimu Adventures Antarctica experts onboard. As you fly, they’ll explain the landscapes and history of the continent along the journey, providing context on the history, environment, and biology of Antarctica. Over the years, Chimu Adventures has built up one of the largest teams of Antarctica experts within Australia, helping us create a fantastic inflight experience for our guests.

After take-off, settle back and enjoy the Qantas hospitality as we make our way south. After around three hours of flying time, gaze in wonder as we start to see scattered icebergs, the bright white glare hard to miss. Once we reach the continent, weather permitting, we’ll get to take in the dramatic mountains, glaciers, and epic frozen landscapes of Antarctica. 

Whether it’s your first time looking for ice or you’re a seasoned Antarctic veteran, the grand, inspiring, and fragile landscapes of the continent will both humble and amaze. We’ll spend 3-4 hours flying over the Antarctic continent and, weather permitting, we’ll reduce the flying altitude to approximately 20,000 feet to get closer for enhanced viewing. 

On your scenic Antarctic flight from Brisbane, we may see Ross Island, home to both modern and historic research bases, gigantic ice shelves, rugged, snow-covered peaks, and maybe even Mount Erebus, Antarctica’s highest active volcano. 

On each departure date, we carefully consider a number of factors, including weather, cloud cover and ice conditions to help provide you with the best viewing experience on the day. Working with Qantas, we have 20 different potential flight paths to choose from, all of which offer incredible views of Antarctica and its fascinating landmarks. With a seat swapping system in place and a range of ticket classes, every traveller will enjoy incredible views, along with full food and beverage service from Qantas. 

We can’t wait to show you the great white continent from the air on this unique and memorable Antarctica scenic flight.

Seeing Antarctica from above, as you travel aboard a luxury Qantas aircraft, helps you appreciate the sheer size and grandeur of the vast Antarctic continent unlike a ship-based expedition and is ideal for those short on time. 

On your Antarctic flight journey, travel around 9,500-13,500 km round trip, depending on your departure city.

Over the years, Chimu Adventures has built up one of the largest teams of Antarctica experts within Australia and we’re proud to offer a fun, immersive, and educational flight, whether it’s your first time spotting ice or you’re a seasoned Antarctic veteran. 

After around three hours of flying time south of Australia, the anticipation building, we’ll start to see scattered icebergs and shortly after we’ll reach the continent itself, where, weather permitting, we’ll get to take in the dramatic mountains, glaciers and frozen landscapes of Antarctica. Our expert commentators will point out the incredible landscapes we see, which can include Mount Erebus, Ross Island (home to both Scott and Shackleton’s bases), gigantic ice shelves, rugged mountains, glaciers, and vast, uncharted lands. Be sure to bring your camera and your sense of adventure, as every flight is completely unique. 

With 3-4 hours of flying time over the Antarctic continent, we’ll hope to reduce the flying altitude to approximately 20,000 feet, weather permitting, to give incredibly close viewing of some areas. On our South Pole Flight, we’ll spend significantly longer over Antarctica, mostly at cruising altitude, as we aim to reach the South Pole.

As we fly back, swap stories and photos with fellow passengers and enjoy the five-star Qantas hospitality, with meals and bar service included. An Antarctica sightseeing flight is one of the most unique ways to enjoy the continent, whether you’re on a budget, have limited time, or you’re simply yearning for a new and unusual travel experience. 

On each departure date, we carefully consider a number of factors, including weather, cloud cover and ice conditions to help provide you with the best viewing experience on the day. Partnering with Qantas, we have 20 different potential flight paths to choose from, all of which have a variety of fascinating landmarks and features to see. 

While our Antarctic cruises will get you up close and personal with the continent, these flights will offer you an unbridled appreciation for the sheer vastness of Antarctica, even if you've visited before. 

We can’t wait to take you on a flight unlike any other­­the beauty and inspiration of Antarctica await.
