NEW – Antarctica 2024
The Edge of The Earth
with Christian Nørgaard

We are excited to launch our workshop in Antarctica, the most isolated continent on earth. From its extraordinary wildlife to awe-inspiring scenery, Antarctica offers photographers a wealth of incredible experiences and the most rewarding and unforgettable adventure of a lifetime.

Situated in the southernmost continent, Antarctica is the coldest, driest and windiest place on the planet. With its pristine nature, Antarctica is home to millions of penguins, whales, seals and seabirds and is a paradise for a photographer who wants to explore the rugged wilderness landscape and vast beauty.

Your adventure starts
Duration: 21 days – 19 nights of adventure on the ship
Departure: 9 November 2024
Price from €11,995
Vessel: Ocean Nova which has just been modernized and updated.

For your comfort
We can offer you a two-hour flight from Punta Arenas, the Chilean gateway to Patagonia, directly to Antarctica, where you then board your expedition ship (Optional).

If Antarctica is on your bucket list, start planning and pre-order now!

Highlights of Antarctica:

Antarctica holds over 90% of the world’s ice. It is one of the best places to capture the expansive snowy landscapes, towering glaciers, colossal icebergs and floating ice sculptures.

There are no cruise ship docks in Antarctica, so private zodiacs will transport you from ship to land, cruise among icebergs and glaciers, and visit remote and isolated sites.

Antarctica light
“The thing that is most beautiful about Antarctica for me is the light. It´s like no other light on Earth because the air is so free of impurities. You get drugged by it.” – Jon Krakauer, Writer & Mountaineer.

The truly pure air makes the light in Antarctica completely different from anywhere else.

By the way, Emperor penguins are the largest of all penguins. An average bird stands about 115cm (45 inches) tall.
