When the best season to visit Antarctica and South Georgia?

The antarctic season is from the beginning of october to mid march. In Antarctica all seasons are beautiful and interesting, but different.
If you travel at the beginning you will find a lot of snow, and penguins building nests, and mating. By January, the days will be very long, with lots of light and no night (mid-summer), you will find penguin chicks and other very small marine mammals.
By the end of summer, the days will be short again, the penguins will be changing feathers and learning to swim, and the seal pups will be learning to enter the water…
It’s really hard to pick one as the best time!

How big is Ushuaia and witch activities I can do there?

Ushuaia is a medium-sized city of about sixty thousand inhabitants. It has all the basic services guaranteed (hospital, supermarket, internet, etc). Although it is a bit isolated (200km from the next city and 700km to the next one) it has very good air and sea connectivity, with a large airport and a very busy port in summer. Land connectivity is limited, because Tierra del Fuego is an island.
