What weather can I expect?

  • November

    November is typified by colder, less predictable weather. Snow isn't uncommon on South Georgia, but makes for great photo opportunities.

    Average temperatures:

    • Antarctic Peninsula: 28 degrees F ( -2 degrees C)
    • South Georgia: 41 degrees F ( 5 degrees C)
    • The Falklands: 46 degrees F (8 degrees C)
  • December

    December is typically marked by sunshine and blue skies with increasingly longer days of daylight, however this is Antarctica and the odd whiteout can still occur.

    Average temperatures:

    • Antarctic Peninsula: 30 degrees F (-1 degrees C)
    • South Georgia: 41 degrees F (5 degrees C)
    • The Falklands: 46 degrees F (8 degrees C)
  • January

    It's the height of summer on the Antarctic Peninsula with temperatures rising to 60 F / 15 C and the weather is generally stable, with plenty of sunshine and blue skies.

    Average temperatures:

    • Antarctic Peninsula: 32 degrees F (0.3 degrees C)
    • South Georgia: 43 degrees F (6 degrees C)
    • The Falklands: 52 degrees F (11 degrees C)
  • February

    Temperatures are still warm in February and the weather pretty stable, making travel pleasant.

    Average temperatures:

    • Antarctic Peninsula: 34 degrees F (1 degrees C)
    • South Georgia: 45 degrees F (7 degrees C)
    • The Falklands: 46 degrees F (8 degrees C)
  • March

    March is a time of change for Antarctica as the early onset of winter begins to be felt. From around mid March the weather becomes increasingly colder and less predictable, and the number of ships markedly thins out as the season draws to a close.
