Just come back from Antarctica, I was over the limit with 22kg on the return journey and no one mentioned it. Others had no problems either. I took too much so think about what you are taking, the temp was just above freezing 0-1, thin base and mid layers are fine. Enjoy
I have just come back as well, and over the whole trip I had 5 internal flights and got away with over 15 KG on each leg, the last one I cheekily got away with 28KG(too many souvenirs) I was lucky but I do know that one of the Aussies on the same trip got caught so I really believe that it is luck of the draw and the ability to be nice to the check in staff!
Hope you have a great time, I have just done the same trip and am so jealous of you as I would love to do it again.
Well, Aerolineas LOST my luggage on the way out to Antarctica leaving me with the clothes I stood up in. Not a good start. One the way back I insisted on carrying everything bought with my Visa card as hand luggage and no one even mentioned my bags. My bag eventually arrived back home 16 weeks after I returned having been professionally rifled and repacked, including gravel and a pair of someone else's shoes. My bag had been at Buenos Aries airport apparently. You will enjoy the trip - an experience of a lifetime.
Don't panic if, like mine, your baggage doesn't arrive at Ushuaia. There are some good gear shops there. All you need for the trip is good waterproof, cold weather gear to stand up in, and a change of thermals. Also don't expect a pay out from Exodus insurance - you'll be lucky to get through the paper work - I didn't. It cost me £100 to re-equip as fortunately I was wearing much of my gear in snowy Gatwick before departure. The gear I bought in Ushuaia was excellent quality and I'm still using it in Arctic Burnley.
