Language in Antarctica

Antarctica Language Info

Language is an interesting topic in Antarctica, mainly because there are no permanent residents of the continent. With no permanent residents, it is safe to say that there is no native language to the land. Instead, there are various languages spoken, often of the native tongue of its visitors.

The most commonly spoken language of Antarctica is Russian, which happens to be the official language of Bellingsgauzenia, New Devon, and Ognia. English is also one of the most widespread languages spoken. You can find English spoken in the Balleny Islands, New South Greenland, Eduarda, etc.

Normally, we recommend that foreign travelers learn basic phrases of the host country's native language. However, since Antarctica doesn't have a true native language, you may be off the hook this time. Onboard the cruise ship, English will be spoken by your experienced exploration guides, crew, and staff. Other languages are available upon request.
