Hello travellers and locals.

My name is Ivan. I have been living in Greenland more than 9 years. First time came to  Greenland in 2007, when I was a motorman on a small fishing vessel with greenlandic crew members on board, we crossed the Atlantic Ocean from Denmark through faroe islands  and Iceland to southern Greenland.

The first thing that struck me were icebergs with their virginity. The inimitable crash of calving icebergs frightened me and fascinated at the same time. Then I fell in love with Greenland. Later, I moved to the north-west of Greenland to the city of Ilulissat and after 5 month settled in the city of Aasiaat, where I worked on shrimps trawlers in the area of ​​ Disco Bay beyond the Arctic Circle. From fishing trawler I saw polar bears in wildlife. I watched whales and seals, All most interesting  moments I captured on the camera. On Instagram you can see some of my travel photos  in Greenland.

I sailed from Nuuk to Aasiaat by my own boat. From 2016 I started exploring interesting places in the Davis Strait area, where the town of Ilulissat and the Kangia Ice Fjord are located. Ice fjord Kangia is UNESCO World Heritage List since 2004, from where huge icebergs calves  and drift across the straits around the Disco Island into the open ocean. In winter, I explored territories by snowmobile, plowing deep snow and crossing frozen fjords. From 2017, I began to organize hiking with tents. At the beginning of 2018 I rode a snowmobile from the city of Sisimiut to Kangerlussuaq airport along the famous ski track “arctic circle trail” and reached the Rassell glacier and point 660. I am certified arctic adventure guide in Greenland.

Currently I am prepairing different tour in summer time. One of them is 200 km hike from point 660 near Kangerlussuaq to Sisimiut. If you are interested don’t hesitate contact me !
