The gateway to Antarctica

​At latitude 46°24’ South, Invercargill is one of the southernmost cities of the world, only a couple cities in the far south of Chile and Argentina are located further south. The scenic city is situated on New Zealand’s South Island, a very green and fertile area. In the vicinity there are several nature reserves such as the Fiordland National Park. Because of its southern location Invercargill is used as a gateway to Antarctica. Bluff, near Invercargill is used as embarkation and disembarkation port for our Ross Sea expeditions. Passengers will arrive and depart by plane from Invercargill.
