Spend and afternoon on Devil’s Island in the Weddell Sea. A guest aboard National Geographic Explorer shares her impressions of the place while hiking among rookeries of penguins. You can see it for yourself on an Antarctica expedition.
Congratulations to the video chroniclers on our ships, our excellent field staff, and our fantastic in-house video studio for taking home the top video honor from the Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association International. Our team was recognized with the prestigious HSMAI Platinum award last week.
The video chroniclers aboard our ships shoot, edit, score, and distribute unique videos aboard every ship in the Lindblad-National Geographic fleet on every expedition. In addition to this Herculean task, they also shoot footage for these special projects. This award is a product of their dedicated, excellent work and collaboration with our naturalists and video studio. Well done.
TSO Photography offers us this time lapse video of the fjords of Norway. He shot this video in August 2011, just as National Geographic Explorer was sailing along this same coast. If you like this video, be sure to also check out The Arctic Light. And if you’d like to see Norway’s fabled fjords for yourself, join us this summer.
Alongside most of our brochures we create DVDs that showcase the places we exploreand the kinds of experiences our guests can expect. Each ship in our Lindblad/National Geographic fleet sails with a Video Chronicler aboard — a person who shoots and edits a film for each voyage. And since our chroniclers shoot footage every day, we have a wealth of content to create these DVDs.
This year our Alaska cruises underwent so many changes, from the addition of an Undersea Specialist to adding a Huna Tlingit interpreter when we sail into Glacier Bay National Park, that it required a new DVD. The DVDs will be available for order soon, but this is an early look at the full-length Alaska experience. All of our other DVDs are available here.
Ron Garan, Satoshi Furukawa and the crew aboard the International Space Station shot this time-lapse video over the course of a couple months. See the deserts, oceans and cities, as well as the Aurora Borealis from an altitude of 350km. It’s an extraordinary view of Earth’s atmosphere.
The Today Show’s Matt Lauer found himself atop a giant dune in the African nation of Namibia as part of his “Where in the World is Matt Lauer” feature. He skied down the side of a windswept dune and declared Namibia among the most beautiful places he’s ever seen.
It would be difficult to argue with his assessment. This photo from National Geographic alone speaks volumes to the country’s beauty and magic. We’ll be there aboard National Geographic Explorer on March 28, 2012. Join us on an African Odyssey up the continent’s entire west coast.
