When to Visit Antarctica

 The Best Time To Take A Trip To Antarctica
Antarctica is a dream adventure travel destination, but much of the continent’s appeal lies in the time you visit and what you want to see.

If you've never been to Antarctica, it might be hard to imagine the continent experiencing seasons, but it does, and each new season brings different highlights.  

However, you won’t be disappointed if your travel schedule is confined to a particular month or season, as Antarctica is a bucket-list destination that never disappoints.

This guide will help you choose the best times to visit Antarctica so you can experience all of the adventures you’ve been dreaming about.

January
It’s easy to forget that summer isn’t during June, July, and August in every part of the world. In Antarctica, January is the heart of the austral summer, and that means more than 20 hours of daylight per day. Thus, more time for outdoor exploration each day, as well as more time to admire the penguin chicks and seals, which are abundant during this month.

February
February is a bit later in the summer season, which means much of the pack ice has been melted by the strong summer sun, making adventures across the Antarctic Circle possible. Penguin youngsters are still abundant, and whales are often seen more frequently in the waters of Antarctica.

March
March brings the warmest months of the year to a close as temperatures drop below freezing. However, fur seals are playful, penguin chicks are present and molting, and this (late February and March) is often a good time to see and snap photos of whales breaching the Antarctic waters.
