Antarctica is only accessible by tourists from November to March, when the pack ice has broken up, and the 20 hours of sunlight per day brings warmer temperatures.

Since all tours to Antarctica originate in other countries (typically Chile and Argentina), travelers will need to adhere to the passport/visa requirements of the country of departure and/or disembarkation.

Depending upon the ship, in addition to wildlife viewing and hiking, the following activities may be available: camping, SCUBA diving, sea kayaking, mountaineering, photo workshop, and snowshoeing.
