No. Tourism is not sustainable in Antarctica, because sustainability implies a cycle. People who tour to Antarctica come on cruise ships, where they sleep and eat. Daily, they leave the cruise ships in zodiacs, to trek upon the continent, and visit penguin colonies, abandoned whaling stations, and other sites.

They spend no money there; there are no native peoples or crafts to benefit from tourism.

The perfect tourist leaves only footprints, and then only where footprints are allowed.
