The month of November undoubtedly offers the most adventurous time to visit the Antarctic Peninsula. This is the time to see Antarctica at its most undisturbed form. As the season goes on, the landing areas become impacted and muddy. Many operators tend to discourage November voyages as temperatures tend to be colder and polar ice is still breaking up, thus limiting access to some areas. The cold temperatures, however, also offer the most impressive ice-scapes, pristine snow, and breathtaking scenery.
Antarctica is a continent of extremes. It holds the title of coldest, driest, and windiest location on earth. Temperatures have been recorded as low as -129 degrees Fahrenheit, with winds blasting along the coastline at speeds up to 200 mph. But even in such harsh conditions, Antarctica remains the home of a large variety of extraordinary wildlife.
