What is the best month to go to Antarctica?
The season in Antarctica is very short.
Cruises run from late October to March, and land-based packages even have a narrower window – end of November to beginning of February.
But to answer your question, What is the best month to visit Antarctica – would be December and/or January.
The weather is warmer, the days grow longer, and Antarctica comes alive with an astonishing abundance of wildlife.
Towards the end of the season you’ll have more chances of seeing whales, and the shrinking sea ice means you’ll be able to travel deeper into the Antarctic.
