Best Time to Visit Antarctica

If you wish to travel to Antarctica, you will need to travel between November – March.

Best time to visit

November is when Antarctica is practically untouched; those who travel towards the beginning of the month will be treading on fresh snow with the vast expanse of Antarctica stretching out in front of you. It is particularly cold in Antarctica in November so where you can go is limited, however, the scenery is at its most impressive! December – early February is Antarctica’s high summer, and it is the time when the wildlife is most active; penguins, seals and birds are everywhere, and you may even spy a penguin chick hatching! Mid-February – March is the best time to try and see whales such as humpback, minke and orca.
