The 8 Best Cruise Itineraries (and When To Go)by Heidi Sarna | May 05, 2017
This expensive trip-of-a-life-time sails round-trip out of Ushuaia, Argentina, and explores all three of Antarctica’s main regions — the Antarctica Peninsula for its stunning ice bergs and penguins; South Georgia Island to follow in the footsteps of explorer Ernest Shackleton; and the pastoral Falkland Islands.
When to Go: December
Why Then: Penguin chicks start hatching during this time of the year, when Antarctica sees the most sunlight (20 hours per day) and the warmest temperatures of the year.
