CLOTHING IN FEBRUARY

by bean4bean4

Can anybody give me advice on the type of cloting I should wear on February. I'll be on a cruise ship with some stops (one in Punta Arenas, Ushuaia, Puerto Madryn and Puerto Montt.)

In Ushuaia, I intend to go to the glacier martial and to Tierra del Fuego ntl park. Do you believe I will need gloves and a cap? A sweater? What weather should I expect ?

Finally, is it possible to take a plane to Antartica back and forth the same day? I'd like to have a look of Antartica (in the air). Are you aware of reliable agencies doing that?
thanks a lot!!!

I am sure you are doing the very cruise I did two years ago as it was at the same time of year and the stops are the same. It was amazing. Email me directly at the site for more information.

For that particular stop yes, you will need a cap and gloves and a warm coat. Dress in layers. Wear waterproof shoes.

The cruise was one that traversed several different climates so you will need a very varied wardrobe.

Also remember that in the Southern hemisphere the ozone layer is thinnest here and so wearplenty of sun protection, even when the snow is falling.

My advice will be layers of clothing, so you can tkae things off as it gets warm. The weather is very windy and changable so a wind and water proof jacket is important. You will definately need gloves and a cap. I was there in December the temperature was 10 degrees celcius most days, it also snowed while I was there.

Hi - we did the cruise in March and it was still very cold. I agree with the above advice - dress in layers, bring a cap and gloves, and warm shoes.

I believe there is a flight to Antarctica that goes/comes back in the same day but it is very expensive and dependant upon the weather. I also think that if the flight is cancelled you do not get your money back. Check www.cruisecritic.com if you haven't already done so. There will probably be more info on the flight (as well as additional information for your cruise).

It's a great itinerary and I'm sure you'll have a great time! I thought Ushuaia was one of the most beautiful places I've been. Make sure to see some penguins somewhere! Happy Cruising!

Ushuaia is more moderate than el Calafate to the north. Its average winter temp is 1C, while its summer average is 9C, so it is rather moderate in temperature, but has the possibility for extreme swings.

For your time on land, hiking boots for wet/muddy grounds are advised. Waterproof jackets are too.

patagonian weather is completely unpredictable. you can get snow in february in ushuaia. so yes, layers and never go outside without a gloves and a cap.

as far as i know, there are no longer flights that go to antarctica and back on the same day. there may be flyovers, but not ones that land. the only places from where this is possible is from Punta Arenas and possible Puerto Williams, both in Chile.

HI,
I had read somewhere before about flights from Ushuaia to the Antarctic Peninsula, but I can't seem to find that same web page. I do remember the flight being around $1800 USD
I did manage to find the following web page though:

Travel Tips for Ushuaia

Flowers everywhere

by andal13

I was in Ushuaia during summertime, so there were flowers everywhere... lupines, poppies, roses, daisies... Beautiful!

Estuve en Ushuaia durante el verano, por lo que había flores en todas partes... lupines, amapolas, rosas, margaritas... Hermoso!

Summer, not as we know it.

by kyoub

Take good walking shoes because the streets are up and down hill.
Also take some clothes to layer, just because it is summer doesn't mean that you will not need some clothes to keep you warm.
Plus you will need a rain repellant jacket.
The weather is very changeable.

Simbologia - a strange monument

by globetrott

Simbologia is the name of this quite strange monument, that you will find just a few steps from the former prison of Ushuaia, in the centre of a round-about and next to the entrance of the barracks of the navy. In the centre of that monument you see the face of a person, its back is made like the back of a lobster ( see my 3rd photograph). At his feet this person has 3 dolphins...

Municipalidad de Ushuaia - the Town Hall

by globetrott

The townhall of Ushuaia is next to the tourist-office and it has a really lovely garden in front of it. A small sculpture of a monk next to the entrance is the symbol for the great efforts that was made by the Salesianer-monks in order to cultivate this part of the world. You will find this building next to the tourist-office in the centre of Ushuaia.

Hot chocolate

by andal13 about Laguna Negra

Laguna Negra is a famous chocolate and jams sort; the chocolate shops have also small places where you can enjoy a cup of hot chocolate, with some homemade cakes.

Laguna Negra es una famosa marca de chocolates y mermeladas; las chocolaterías tienen también pequeños lugares en donde se puede disfrutar de una taza de chocolate caliente y tortas caseras. Despite I was there in summer, the weather is quite cold, so a hot cup of chocolate with churros was a good idea!

A pesar que estuve allí en el verano, el tiempo es bastante frío, así que una taza de chocolate caliente con churros fue una buena idea!
