Since 2002 these excursions to the Chatham Islands has been offered to, and enjoyed by, many Friends of Te Papa. Touring with Hamish and Chris is a rare opportunity to visit the Chathams in a safe and convivial context. The plan is to visit Chatham and Pitt Island, sea and air conditions permitting.
Anyone is welcome – you don’t have to be a geologist, a Friend of Te Papa, or a citizen of Zealandia. They are about much more than natural science. You will explore Chatham Islands history, culture and cuisine. It is a must do, if you have not yet done it!
Trip 1: Friday 25 August to Wednesday 30 August.
Trip 2: Friday 1 September to Wednesday 6 September.
Air travel ex-Wellington: with Air Chathams
Accommodation: Hotel Chatham, Waitangi, Chatham Island
Capped at 20 people each, the trips are all-embracing in terms of experiencing the Chathams.
However, a certain level of fitness is required: you must be able to negotiate a wire fence in less than 20 seconds. Some people get hung up on this self-fitness test. To avoid this, attempt wire fences only in the presence of an adult.
