The Hagglunds All Terrain carrier is part of the International Antarctic Centre day out and it is supposed to simulate the rough conditions experienced in the Antarctic by those who spend their time in the harsh landscape. The whole experience was part of a shore tour from the ''Majestic Princess'' when we called in at Akaroa. The Centre itself, is a great experience but I don't think the ''Hagglund's'' ride quite captures the Antarctic terrain. The vehicle itself is amazing and climbs up cliff faces with ultimate ease. I tried to capture photos of the odd angles that you find yourself in but it is far too bumpy and hair raising to get the angle you wish to achieve on film. The whole International Antarctic Centre visit is a great experience but the ''Hagglund's''; if you've got a bad back, is not for you. Don't be put off, it is a great experience, but unfortunately, not for me.

Thank you for your review and it is pleasing that you found your shore excursion to the International Antarctic Centre a great experience. The Hugglund which is normally one of the highlights of the tour is as you say not for everyone as it is definitely an off the road experience to demonstrate what the Hugglund is capable of doing in all sorts of terrrain. There is a warning provided prior to the ride that the ride is not suitable for people with bad backs, as it is bumpy and it is designed this way to simulate the conditions in Antarctica.
