Antarctica Nightlife: 39 reviews and 43 photos
Unfortunately, the reality is that few Antarctic tourists will see the Aurora Australis (the southern lights) during the course of their trip. Because most trips are clustered around the mid-summer period, at the Antarctic Circle the sun is either above the horizon or so close to it that the sky does not darken adequately for an aurora to be visible. Further north, the high prevalence of cloud and short darkness makes a sighting unlikely.
The prospects may be best for those tourists on the 'shoulder' part of the season, early or late, because of the greater number of hours of darkness.
Dress Code: Warm
Address: South of about 50 degrees
Directions: In the Antarctic region when there are a few hours of complete darkness, a clear sky, and suitable conditions of solar activity. Then look up!
