Premium Workshop - Fernando de Noronha / PE


Paradise exists, is on Earth and has a first and last name: Fernando de Noronha. The archipelago located about 350 km from the northeast coast of Brazil stands out for the exuberant beauty of its golden sand beaches and the sea in shades of turquoise and emerald green. Those who visit Fernando de Noronha, in addition to swimming among preserved corals and splendid marine life, still enjoy the natural beauty of their forests, rock formations and a breathtaking sky, whether during sunset or during the night, when all the stars in the universe seem to sparkle in the Noronha sky.

In addition to enjoying all the natural beauty of the island, in this Premium Workshop we will be staying in one of the most luxurious and trendy inns in all of Brazil, Pousada Zé Maria, which is the perfect example of the comfort of technological resources and environmental preservation . Situated next to Morro do Pico, one of the most famous spots on the island, Zé Maria is known for hosting celebrities from Brazil and abroad, whether to stay in its comfortable Bungalows or even to enjoy the amenities that only an award-winning inn with the Roteiros de Charme seal can offer.

It is in this scenario that the photographer Victor Lima invites you to his Premium Workshop in Fernando de Noronha, where the themes of nature and landscape photography will be addressed, with the right to night trips to record the Milky Way over one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. .
