Ice and penguins
Photo Expedition Antarctica
NEW EXPEDITION: We invite you to join us on a 15 days (14 nights) Antarctic photography tour to the Antarctic Peninsula in January / February 2024. WildPhoto Travel will be chartering the entire ship, MV Polar Pioneer, for a PHOTOGRAPHER ONLY expedition. With the changes done to the Antarctic expedition fleet, our ship is now one of the smallest expedition ships available. There will be a maximum of 53 guests, all fellow photographers with a wish to make the best of landings and good light. Get ready for an exciting Antarctic photography tour.
The main focus on this photography trip will be penguins, seabirds, seals, landscape and ice. The reason we choose to offer a January/February Antarctic photography tour is because want to photograph the chicks that starts to be bigger at this time of the year. In combination with great landscape we believe this will be another successful Wildphot Travel expedition to Antarctica. We will be landing early in the morning to get the best light conditions, which you will miss on ordinary tourist trips.
We will schedule longer stops than usual when going ashore in order to provide participants with enough time to get excellent pictures. We use 5 zodiac boats to get ashore or when searching for the wildlife at sea.
With 10-11 full days near the Antarctic Peninsula, this Antarctic photography tour is for nature photographers who want more quality time with the Antarctic wildlife and landscape.
