Visiting Antarctica in March

March is an excellent time to visit Antarctica for those looking to experience the region’s unique wildlife, landscapes, and science, without the crowds of the peak season. However, it’s essential to note that weather conditions in Antarctica can be unpredictable, so it’s always best to check with your travel provider before booking your trip

5 Reasons to Visit Antarctica in March

1. Weather

The weather in March can be slightly cooler than earlier in the season, with temperatures ranging from around -5°C to 3°C (23°F to 37°F). However, the weather is still relatively mild, and the days are still long, providing ample time for exploration.

2. Wildlife

Although the wildlife may start to become less active in March, there are still plenty of opportunities to see penguins, seals, and whales. It’s an ideal time for birdwatchers, as many of the migratory birds are still in the region.

3. Activities

There are plenty of activities to participate in during March. Hiking, mountaineering, skiing, helicopter rides, and more!

4. Ice Activity

March is an ideal time to see the unique ice conditions in Antarctica, with the ice starting to break up and form stunning ice sculptures and icebergs.

5. Aurora Australis

March is an excellent time to see the Aurora Australis (Southern Lights) in Antarctica, as the nights are becoming longer, and the weather conditions can be optimal for viewing.
