If you’re planning a trip to Antarctica it’s worth considering the time of year that you go. The early season is actually considered the best, which is between November and December. It’s during that time of year that the temperatures start to rise and the days start to get longer.
Since that’s the time of year that Antarctica is warming up, that also means that it’s the time of year of the wildlife starts to get more active. The whales start returning to feed in the area, and the mating birds begin their mating season.
In the early times of the season, the land is also going to appear less muddled since fewer tourists will have been there during the winter season. This will make the land photos all the more beautiful. Plus, in the early springtime, the icebergs will still be quite large which makes for gorgeous ocean photography as well.
