When to go
The best time to visit French Southern Territories is during the months of August to December. It is the peak tourist season so you will enjoy the liveliness but the rest of the year experiences rainfall so it is best to avoid this place during that time.
Destinations to cover
You can visit the Scattered Islands. The other four regions to explore here are Iles Crozet, Iles Kerguelen, Ile Amsterdam and Ile Saint-Paul. Crozet and Kergulen form the southern islands and Amsterdam as well as Saint Paul are extinct volcanoes now. There is also an Antarctic treaty that the French had and hence Adelie Land is the Antarctic part of the French Southern Territories.
Get in and around
There are four airports and no harbours on this island. Some boats travel every year from Reunion to these isles. The airports don’t operate for commercial purposes, but there are special flights that take in scientists and researchers. There is no set way to get around so you have to struggle really hard to get to different parts of the island.
Hotels and Food
There are no places available for public accommodation on this island. But if you go with an adventure group or on an excavation trip, you are sure to find a way to camp somewhere and have a memorable adventure.
