Antarctica Tour Photo Workshop

from $6,600

ANTARCTICA TOUR & PHOTO WORKSHOP

When you hear the word Antarctica, the first image that comes to mind is huge sheets of ice. However, the endless whiteness spread across the land surrounded by the blue ocean is a sight to behold! With icebergs and penguins here and there, it is no wonder why our Photo Workshop & Antarctica Tour attracts many tourists armed with their cameras. Capturing this stark beauty was only accessible via ships back then. Due to the recent developments, however, flying to Antarctica has become easy and has gained popularity. You have many reasons to visit – one of which is our Antarctica Photo Tour focusing on photography.

This Photo workshop going to Antarctic Peninsula begins at Punta Arenas in Southern Patagonia. After arriving in Punta Arenas, passengers rest for a night before taking a chartered plane trip to Antarctica the next day. This journey to the Antarctic Peninsula is around 2.5 hours.

The plane lands in the Shetland Islands at Frei Station, which happens to be the most accessible area of Antarctica. It boasts grand natural beauty, and the Antarctic wildlife such as penguins, whales, seals and many sea-birds endemic to this part of the world. This amazing wildlife will leave you in awe as you can capture them while going through this Antarctica Photo tour.

King George Island of South Shetland is the largest island in this part and is a hub for many research stations. A semi-permanent population of 500 people also inhabits it.

UNUSUAL EXPEDITION’s trips are well known for accomplishing a lot in just a few days. We pack a lot of content with different themes in a single trip. This workshop will be no different! Location shoots each day are dependent on daily weather and lighting conditions. Guided by our own Singapore travel photographer, we can guarantee that you will genuinely enjoy this Antarctica Tour Photo Workshop in Antarctic Peninsula.

ITINERARY: ANTARCTICA TOUR PHOTO WORKSHOP

PUNTA ARENAS

DAY 1

The adventure of a lifetime starts today! The Antarctica Tour begins as we meet at the Punta Arenas Hotel to start essential preparations for the Photo Workshop Expedition ahead. You will be briefed on customs formalities, travel details, and you will try on your boots to ensure they are the correct size. We will then sit down for a welcome dinner where you will get to meet the rest of your group, and have the chance to ask anything you want before the tour of the Antarctic Peninsula begins.

ANTARCTICA TOUR PHOTO WORKSHOP

DAY 2

We leave Punta Arenas airport for Antarctica! Within 2 hours of departure, we will disembark in King George Island and head to the penguin and seal-rich Fildes Bay to explore the area. Fildes Bay has protected areas for penguins, the Cosmic Radiation laboratory (in Presidente Frei Base of the Chilean Air Force), and other military bases run by other countries, such as China, Uruguay, and Russia. Fun fact: Russian Bellingshausen Base is home to the Trinity Church.

This is a beautiful part of this Antarctica Tour Photo Workshop. But, bear in mind that exact photography location depends on weather conditions.

Do note: departure time to King George Island will vary depending on weather

Meals: (B,L,D)

ANTARCTICA

DAY 3

We arrive in the South Shetland Islands, although our exact location and time of arrival hugely depend on the weather in Antarctica, the environment can change drastically. Keep your camera ready, as this is the spot to see your first icebergs and, of course, the lands of Antarctica! Antarctica Tour will make you swoon as we board a boat and sail in ice-filled bays while enjoying the company of sea birds, penguins, seals, and if we are lucky, whales.

We will also board a Zodiac and head towards shore for your first, memorable visit of a penguin colony. Our photo workshop expedition will continue well into the evening, as daylight lasts for a long time in Antarctica.

Exact photography location depends on weather conditions.

Meals: (B,L,D)

DRAKE PASSAGE

DAY 4

Depending on weather conditions, your location and time of landing may vary. This will be the last Antarctica Tour landing in the morning, and you will be all ready to sail through the infamous Drake Passage en route to Ushuaia.

Exact photography location depends on weather conditions.

Meals: (B,L,D)

 

DAY 5

Today we cross in the infamous Drake Passage. The Drake Passage stretches for just under 1,000km and is the spot where the Atlantic, Pacific, and Southern Seas converge, creating a roaring current mix that might make balancing your drinks a little tricky!

What makes the Drake Passage, so infamously rough is the fact that currents at this latitude meet no resistance from any landmass, anywhere on the planet. Coupled with the area’s propensity for high wind, a crossing of the Drake Passage can be quite the adventurous exploit. This is one of the most thrilling activities included in this Antarctica Tour package coupled with Photo Workshop.

As you sail through the Drake Passage en route to Ushuaia, attend an engaging program of lectures and presentations. In the company of expert guides, watch for wildlife from the glass-enclosed lounge or the outside decks. You may spot magnificent sea birds, such as albatrosses and petrels, as well as different species of whales on their way to Argentina.

Meals: (B,L,D)

CAPE HORN

DAY 6

After an overnight crossing, you awake in full view of legendary Cape Horn! Cape Horn is a rocky headland on Hornos Island in southern Chile’s Tierra del Fuego archipelago. Wild seas surround it off the southern tip of South America, where the Pacific and Atlantic oceans meet. The albatross-shaped Cape Horn Monument commemorates the lives of thousands of seafarers who perished attempting to sail around the cape.

Weather permitting, we will board a Zodiac and be one of the few privileged adventurers to step foot on this famous and rarely visited island. We will then head back on board ship, and set sail towards Antarctica and cross the famous passage named in honor of Sir Francis Drake, the great 16th-century British explorer. We will also sail along the Beagle Channel towards Puerto Williams, Chile, the southernmost town in the world. We’ll have the chance to explore the surroundings before setting sail to Ushuaia.

Exact photography location depends on weather conditions.

Meals: (B,L,D)
