We went on a unique journey for the BBC Travel Show in an Air New Zealand Dreamliner across the Southern Ocean heading towards Antarctica to "chase the Aurora Australis" - one of the world's most unique and spectacular light shows. The chartered "Southern Lights by Flight" were pioneered by Astrophysicist Dr. Ian Griffin from Dunedin & Viva Expeditions' Rachel Williams who offer a bucket list trip as the plane literally banks and "chases" the Aurora across the night sky in a 10 hour journey from Christchurch, New Zealand and back again.

Filmed, Directed & produced by Sharron Ward at Katalyst Productions.

  • Getting this kind of exposure in an international, trusted brand was immensely valuable to my company Viva Expeditions. It was great to see the video cut down feature also on BBC Travel’s twitter & Instagram pages and feature on the BBC News feed!
