The Southern Lights




$1,295 - $6,995

Capacity of 236 seat aboard Boeing 787 Dreamliner


Join Aurora hunter and astrophysicist Dr Ian Griffin and a team of expert astronomers and fly into the night, to witness one of the world’s most magical natural phenomena.

Take off onboard a Qantas Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, you will head south over the Southern Ocean towards Antarctica, aiming for latitudes of 62 degrees south where the Aurora Australis is brightest.
We will take you far away from light pollution, high above the clouds and weather systems to see a magical and unforgettable display with uninterrupted view of the southern lights. Along the way you will see constellations, stars, and planets as you have never witnessed them before.

Throughout the flights you will receive a full inflight catering service in both business and economy classes. Expert astronomers will provide information on route about how an aurora is created, as well as pointing out their favourite night sky objects. They will instruct you on how to photograph an aurora and we will have a photographer onboard to assist on how best to use your cameras.
