South America with Antarctica

Recommended Posts

I've been three times, but all were in early January. That's the equivalent of northern hemisphere July, so it's about as warm as it gets there.

Is Dec or Jan a better month, considering weather, I know weather is unknown, but generally.  


We were in Antartica last February and had 4 days of lovely weather. Often the ships do not have such great weather. Bring WARM gloves and hats. The views are breathtaking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We did a January cruise and the weather was great.  I think January or February are the best choices, but, in either case, you can expect moderate to high seas transiting the Drake Passage from mainland South America to Antarctica.
