Despite the sunshine, the day we "crossed the circle" was probably one of the coldest, as the wind sprang up to around 40 knots (around 75 km/h). Nothing too special for Antarctica, I'm sure, but it let us know we were alive. The Antarctic Circle itself is at 66 33.6' South, is approximately 2,600 km from the South Pole and encompasses virtually all of the Antarctic continent. Only the Peninsula extends outside the circle in any meaningful way.
