Best Time to Visit the Polar Region

The weather at the Polar regions is a lesson in extremes. Antarctica is the world’s coldest, windiest and driest continent. During the summer months the winds abate considerably, and the weather is surprisingly comfortable, averaging between –6 and 10°c. Summertime also means 18-24 hours of sunlight allowing extensive exploration trips.

Arctic cruising has a very specific season due to the sea ice; all expedition cruises depart from July through to September and therefore do not sail in the winter months. The Arctic Circle can see summer temperatures vary between -10°c and 10°c. Whether you are just travelling to one destination or a through a myriad of countries, we are here to guide you on the best time to visit to get the most out of your trip.
