Antarctica & Buenos Aires: Photography on Ice
Come and join us in March 2022 on a luxury Antarctica Photography on Ice expedition led by myself and actor, broadcaster Louise Wallace.
This is no ordinary tour; it’s a luxury photography landscape and wildlife expedition. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to explore Buenos Aires and Antarctica with Louise who was the recipient of Best Tourism Story award at the Qantas Media Awards as well as learning from Lesley, one of New Zealand’s leading female photography mentors.
This is a fully escorted tour by Pam Young from House of Travel. We depart Auckland in early March 2022, flying to Buenos Aires for two nights before boarding MS Fridtjof Nansen at Ushuaia for our 12-day Antarctic cruise. We finish our cruise back in Ushuaia and return to Buenos Aires for two nights, before flying back to Auckland.
This Antarctica expedition cruise is perfect way to experience spectacular Antarctic wildlife and natural beauty. Enjoy five full days in Antarctica with landings and ice-boat cruising, as well as chances to kayak, hike and much more. Antarctica never fails to inspire awe and wonder, with white horizons above oceans full of icebergs and whales. Perhaps even more awe-inspiring will be your first encounter with the huge colonies of penguins.
The onboard expedition team will lead ice-cruising and landings at every opportunity to come ashore and explore the impressive Antarctic scenery; this is true wilderness. From the deck, there are great chances to spot whales.
We will attempt landings at several sites in the South Shetlands and on the Antarctic Peninsula and aim to bring you to the incredible diversity of landscapes and rich wildlife on display in this pristine wilderness.
Photographers will be spoilt under the guidance of both myself and an onboard professional photographer. You can expect to capture outstanding Antarctic landscape and wildlife photos; the sights and sounds of Antarctica are sure to stay with you for a lifetime!
Buenos Aires, known as ‘the Paris of the South’ has a rich history and an untiring passion for life. We will spend time discovering history at street level, exploring local markets, cobblestone streets and ornate historic buildings with an overabundance of street and travel photographic opportunities.
On our last day before our farewell dinner, we’ll have an opportunity to get together, sharing our favourite images where you’ll be provided with some tips on editing and composure.
