Antarctica Gay Travel

Antarctica offers gay travellers the chance to experience a unique sub-zero safari.

The world’s southernmost continent is also the coldest, driest and windiest. Its population is made up entirely of manned research stations from multiple governments, and varies between 1000 residents in winter and 5000 in summer. If you’re looking to check every continent off your list, it doesn’t get any more brazen than this.




Quick Facts

  • Capital City: N/A
  • Currency: N/A
  • Languages: Primarily English and Russian
  • Best Time of Year to Visit: December (which is summer in the southern hemisphere)

Best Places to Visit in Antarctica

More Info

There is definitely no gay scene in Antarctica, but we hear the penguins are all over the Kinsey Scale.

Gay Activity: N/A
Lesbian Activity: N/A
Gay Marriage: N/A
Right to Change Gender: N/A
Same-Sex Adoption: N/A
LGBT Discrimination: N/A
Equal Age of Consent: N/A

As mentioned there is no such thing as a gay scene in Antarctica. In fact, with just about 1000 actual residents (mostly scientists), there isn’t really any sort of scene! But fear not, if you’re joining our Antarctica: Gay Expedition we’ll make our own scene.

Best Time to Visit: We visit in December, which is the southern hemisphere’s summer. As Ushuaia’s warmest month, it will average 9.6 °C/49.3 °F. Once near the Antarctic Peninsula, average temperatures are barely above freezing. Being the continent’s northernmost point, the peninsula has the most moderate climate and increased participation, but also the fiercest winds, with gusts up to 200 mph.

Electricity: N/A

Time Zone: Antarctica sits on all time zones, but we’ll be in the Northern Peninsula (GMT-03:00).

Covid-19 Vaccination Requirements: We’re dedicated to ensuring our tours are safe for everyone, but it is our belief that each traveler has a responsibility to protect themselves and their fellow travellers from COVID-19. As of May 1, 2023, Out Adventures no longer requires guests to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination on most of our tours. If vaccination is a requirement for entry, or on select cruises, this will be communicated at the time a trip is confirmed to depart. Before booking, we recommend that you read our COVID-19 Information Page and our COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions to understand what we’re doing to minimize risk, and what will happen if you contract COVID-19 before or during an Out Adventures tour.

Vaccinations: For Argentina, our departure point, the WHO suggests typhoid, cholera, yellow fever, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, rabies, measles, mumps and rubella (MMR), and influenza vaccines. No vaccines are required for Antarctica. Consult with your doctor or a travel medical clinic for more info.

Visas: For Argentina, the most common departure point, Americans, Canadians, Australians, and EU citizens do not need a visa. As no country owns Antarctica, no visa is required.

Completely perfect itinerary.

Antarctica Gay Expedition
Rating:

What better way to go to the bottom of the world than with a great bunch of guys who at least have one thing in common! I loved touching down in Ushuaia and then sailing off to the unknown. Completely perfect itinerary.
