Are you a keen photographer wanting to improve your skills while capturing stunning winter images of one of the most famous locations in Greenland? Join us on this 8-day photography adventure to the UNESCO World Heritage listed Ilulissat Icefjord – one of the most picturesque places on the planet.
The name “Ilulissat” means “Icebergs” in the Greenlandic language. Here you will find some of the largest icebergs in the world, and it is widely believed that the iceberg that sank the Titanic originated from the Sermeq Kujalleq glacier that sits at the head of this Icefjord. Photographing these enormous ice sculptures from both land and sea is a key focus of this trip.
As is photography of the brightly coloured houses that are so characteristic of Greenland. While Ilulissat is filled with colourful buildings, it is now Greenland’s third largest city and quite modern. We will therefore travel North to the small Inuit settlement of Oqaatsut to spend several days photographing a more traditional way of life.
Oqaatsut is also a wonderful place to learn how to photograph the magical Northern Lights (weather and solar activity permitting). Due to the small population and limited light pollution, we will not need to go far to find interesting compositions that will enhance the images you capture.
The backdrop to all of this is the pristine white snow and the gorgeous pastel colours of sunrises and sunsets during the Arctic Winter. Your experienced photographic tutor will be able to assist you with both the technical and creative aspects of making the most of the spectacular light you will encounter, and ensure you return home with new photography skills and outstanding images of this remote paradise.
