Antarctica: When To Go

The expedition season generally starts in October/November and runs through the Antarctic summer to March. Please remember that if you need a departure outside of our listed departures, between October-March, please contact us as we represent a variety of other fantastic Antarctic vessels with comparable itineraries and prices.

Weather

Our expeditions focus on the Antarctic Peninsula and the sub-Antarctic islands which both reach further north than the rest of the continent hence temperatures here tend to be far milder (though moister) than the cold, dry interior.  In fact, one is as likely to encounter rain as much as snow on the average expedition, so travelers should be prepared for a variety of conditions, including temperatures well above freezing, all the way down to zero or below, especially when considering wind-chill factors.
