Where to go when - our guide to Antarctica

Antarctica

The weather in Antarctica is wide and varied

lass="c-where-to-go__overview__content-text">Antarctica is an otherworldly snow-blanketed wilderness, where sparkling icebergs and stark islands emerge from frosty seas. The continent is only accessible during the southern hemisphere’s summer: late October to March. This period sees impossibly long daylight hours- around the summer solstice in December, the sun does not set and you’ll experience entire days of perpetual light. You’ll find a typical maritime climate with average temperatures during the cruising season varying between 1°C and -15°C. Whether you time your visit to coincide with the pristine snows of the Antarctic spring (November), the endless days of mid-summer (January) or the March whale-watching season, a rich wildlife experience is all but guaranteed. Spot Emperor, chinstrap, gentoo and Adélie penguins in colonies millions strong, blue, orca, humpback, minke and southern right whales splashing offshore and Weddell, Ross, crab-eater, leopard and elephant seals which sprawl on the beaches.
