1. Christmas is one of the best times of the year to visit Antarctica

Christmas coincides quite well with the beginning of summer and is also the period in which the wildlife of Antarctica is the most active. Penguins move along the peninsula to feed their chicks, seals patrol the bays and whales begin to feed.

2. More sun

Did you know that there is an average of 18-20 hours of sunlight every day in December?

Longer days come with heat, temperatures exceed the freezing point, creating ideal conditions for outdoor activities such as kayaking, camping and walking expeditions.

December is also famous for its impeccable snow conditions, large icebergs and blooming wildflowers.
