Antarctica in March

March weather & where to go

March marks the final month of the Antarctic season and the days are starting to get shorter as the continent moves towards being plunged into 24 hours of darkness. As the sun starts to drop, temperatures decrease, although snow cover is at its minimum. If your dream of Antarctica is pristine white landscapes then we recommend travelling earlier in the season.

March is not the best time to travel for pristine landscapes, but it can be more affordable that the peak months.

Penguin lovers will find that the birds are looking quite shabby this time of year as they are molting, this doesn’t make for particularly appealing photographs.

The advantages to travelling this late in the season is that prices are often lower and March is one of the best months for whale watching.

March marks the end of the season and can be more affordable.
