Falkland islands

We invite you to join us on a special 8 days (7 nights) photo trip to the Falkland Islands in October and November 2023. The Falkland islands is one of the best places on earth to photograph penguins like Rockhopper penguins and Magelanic penguins, but it will also be great opportunities to photograph endemic birds, albatrosses and some marine mammals. We will mostly be on private land, and you can get pretty close to the wildlife and also move more freely around to get the right background or situation. There will be 2 small groups with only 7 photographers and 1 photo guide.
