Visiting Port Lockroy

If you are coming to visit us at Port Lockroy then we have some useful information about the site itself, such as its layout and dos and don'ts when on the island.  We also provide access to the Port Lockroy Antarctic Treaty Visitor Site Guide which you should read before you arrive.  If you are planning a trip outside of an organised cruise then there also some guidelines which you must follow.  Most of all we hope you enjoy your trip to Port Lockroy and our team there are looking forward to welcoming you.

Visiting Other Sites

If you are visiting or plan to visit one of the other sites and huts which we manage, we have provided some useful information about these huts including layouts, dos and don'ts and importantly, as these are unmanned sites, where to find the key!.  It is important that you follow the guidelines so that everyone visiting can enjoy them and their heritage in the way that is intended.

Tourist Guidelines

Antarctica is an awe-inspiring place and to keep it that way there are some very important guidelines from the Antarctic Treaty which every visitor must follow. Find out more here.

Tourist Hints & Tips

Travelling to a destination as extreme and remote as Antarctica and ensuring you’ve packed all those essentials to ensure your trip is memorable for all the rights reasons is challenging.

We have put together a few hints and tips that we have gleaned through experience and speaking to other travellers.

Our Films

We have compiled a series of films about various huts including Port Lockroy.  They are information and briefing films which will give you a glimpse at the history of the sites and also useful insights on what to expect if you are lucky enough to visit them in person.  We hope they help to bring these special places to life.
