You’re in the remote far north (or south) on a small expedition ship and you’re spotting polar bears, playful seals and epic icebergs from a ship’s deck or your own balcony window. You feel like you’re dreaming…

But you’re not…

You’ve always wanted to tick Antarctica or the Arctic off your bucket list, and you’re so happy you decided to book a Chimu Exclusive Cruise. You didn’t know it at the time, but just made the best decision of your life…

This can be YOUR reality too this year and in 2019/2020 with Chimu Adventures.

But first, you’ll need a little extra convincing, right? Read the below and get ready to “seal” the deal…


Cruise to the remotest regions with special guests


Because Chimu Exclusive Cruises charter their own small ships, they’re able to whisk passengers to the remotest destinations that other cruise ships can’t access. They’re also able to host special guests.

For example, in the past, they’ve hosted Australian journalist and television presenter Jennifer Byrne and comedian Andrew Denton. They’ve also embarked on cruises with a charity focus, supporting non-for-profit organisations such as the McGrath Foundation, Love Your Sister and The Mawson’s Huts Foundation.

Next year, on the Discover Antarctica cruise departing on the 20th February, they’ll be gifting Campbell Remess (aka Bumble) – who, since the age of nine, has been making teddy bears for sick and impoverished children around the world – with a trip of a lifetime to Antarctica.


Spot polar bears and other elusive Arctic wildlife


Be one of the first people to travel on the 8-day Arctic Unveiled cruise to the snowy wonderland of Spitsbergen.

Not only is this region of the Arctic spellbindingly beautiful, but it’s also home to tons of Arctic wildlife, such as the elusive polar bear as well as bearded seals, walruses, the Arctic fox and pink-footed geese!


Experience the glacial landscape of the Antarctic Peninsula


Visualise snow-capped mountains, beautifully blue icebergs and spectacular glaciers – the white continent never looked so good!

On the Discover Antarctica Cruise, you’ll get to survey the glacial landscape of the Antarctic Peninsula over the course of 10 magical days.


Travel to rarely visited East Antarctica


Feel like an intrepid explorer on the 26-day In the Wake of Mawson expedition cruise to the remote Commonwealth Bay with – you guessed it – Chimu Adventures!

This cruise traces the famous Australian explorer through this rarely visited part of East Antarctica, visiting Macquarie Island, Campbell Island, the Auckland Islands, the rugged East Antarctic coast, the impressive Commonwealth Bay and, if you’re lucky, Mawson’s Huts.


So what are you waiting for?


Chimu has nine departures to the polar regions on their Chimu Exclusive Cruises between 2018 and 2020. These departures vary in duration, vessel travelled on, areas visited and price point – there really is something for everyone!

All Chimu Exclusive Cruises use small ships (under 200 guests per departure) which allows guests to travel to the remotest regions of the Arctic and Antartica in an intimate environment conducive to making new friends amongst fellow passengers and crew.
