With decades of experience as a Foreign Correspondent he has travelled the world: Europe, Asia, Africa, Pacific, USA, and the Middle East. When Cameron visited Antarctica, he says it was a profound experience, that never leaves you. “It’s the light that shapes your perception of the Frozen South and none more so than Aurora Australis, the spectacular natural phenomenon that lights up the sky in ribbons of green, pink and red”. To see the Southern Lights is to witness and experience awe and wonderment; the same wonderment shared by the great explorers of more than a century ago. I am excited to share this incredible opportunity to view the Australis Aurora far above the earth, at over 37,000 feet.”
