How to Take the Best Photo in AntarcticaAntarctica

There’s nothing more disappointing than wanting to go the full brag on your return from an epic holiday only to find your photos don’t look anything like the ones in the brochure.

This is especially true when you journey to Antarctica, a trip that is, for most, a once-in-a-lifetime experience. And it’s all there to be captured, whether you’re armed with the latest point and shoot, an expensive DSLR or a camera that shoots film. Thankfully, there are always photo experts on board all of Chimu Adventures’ Antarctica cruises to hand out tips and tricks to ensure you go home with plenty of Insta-worthy shots.

Frame up a fellow traveller’s red jacket against the blue of an iceberg. Fill your frame with curious gentoo penguins. Wait for the classic three-part movement of a whale, so you can catch its tail above the waterline before it disappears into the ocean’s depths. Shoot back towards the ship from landfall or capture details of long-abandoned whaling stations.

Back on board, share your best shots from the day with like-minded travellers safe in the knowledge you’ll have captured memories you’ll want to look back on again and again.


Take the best photos of your life when you join one of Chimu Adventures’ Antarctica cruises. There’s a range of different expeditions, lasting between 10 and 21 days.
