Chimu Exclusive Cruises Tours

Travelling to Antarctica or the Arctic is an experience you will never forget, but to explore these incredible destinations with a Chimu flavour is even better. At Chimu, we love exploring new and exciting regions that have rarely been visited by most travellers. As such we love hosting our own charters, often with a particular focus, whether that be an environmental, cultural or social one. Often our exclusive departures aim to support not-for-profit organisations such as the McGrath Foundation and Love your Sister, where a portion of berth sales goes to the organization. Chimu Adventures is also a proud supporter of the Mawson’s Huts Foundation to help conserve the historic huts at Cape Denison and have had a number of fundraising charters to this region.
 
Explore the following cruises that have all been created for exclusively for Chimu travellers.

"I loved the Antarctic Peninsula, I loved South Georgia, for me the Chimu trip just tipped all the boxes, because it had Shackleton, it had animals, it was a beautiful setting!" Heidi
