The season is November through to March (the Antarctic summer) and travel is only possible during this time. Temperatures during this time can vary be between 5 to -27.5°C, depending on wind and weather. Each month offers dramatically different experiences and below are just some of the highlights of travelling at different times of the season.
Travelling in November
Travelling in November means plenty of snow and sea ice as well as dramatic sunsets and spring flowers in the Falklands. At this time, Weddell and fur seals are mating, elephant seals are fighting, while penguins and birds are nest-building and courting. If you cross the Drake Passage in November, you may well see albatrosses, fulmars and petrels flying overhead.
