Back to overview: Antarctica

The climate in the Antarctica can be described in good conscience as continuous bloody cold. Hardly a month achieved decent temperatures and it is non-stop freezing. Throughout the year, it is freezing cold and even die-hard winter athletes should be careful of the crisp temperatures.

Travel season

Those who voluntarily want to freeze off various body parts, plan their journey in the less lethal time from October to April. Tired of living contemporaries freeze in the eternal ice in the merciless months from May to September. And please do not forget the ice scraper for scraping your snow goggles.
