On December 4th 2021, join Chimu on a unique celestial experience and witness the total solar eclipse over Antarctica. 

The 2021 total solar eclipse will occur in one of the world’s most inaccessible yet beautiful locations – Antarctica. A total solar eclipse in Antarctica is a rare event (happens approximately every 18 years) and may prove to be the most magnificent total solar eclipse ever seen. Don't miss this unique opportunity to experience something few people will ever witness in their lifetime.

As you fly into totality, cruising at 40,000 feet above the pure white of Antarctica, the earth will be thrown into darkness, the solar corona will glow around the edges of our moon's shadow, and a garland of silky light from the sun will decorate the lunar edges as the shift of sun and moon in the universe occurs.

During the event we'll have the privilege of being entertained and wowed by the science behind the phenomenon outside our window, as eclipse and Antarctica experts share their specialist knowledge, all presented by our entertaining emcee, Adam Spencer. 

Travellers who book dedicated eclipse seats will have unobstructed views of the eclipse, whilst the other side of the aircraft will view the shadow crossing the pure white below and the sky dramatically changing colour. 

A dual purpose flight, the first leg of this flight will spend time at low altitudes sight seeing over Antarctica for travellers who have purchased an Antarctica sightseeing seat, before a seat swap when the Eclipse travellers take the window seats and the plane will climb to position for the best light and shadow show on earth!
