Have you ever wanted to go to the Arctic? And do you have a passion for photography? Then join this breathtaking photography trip with skilled tutors to Ilulissat.
Ilulissat is a small town in northwest Greenland. Ilulissat is known for its countless icebergs in the sea, and it is really living up to its name, which funnily enough means ‘icebergs’ in West Greenlandic.
The autumn in Ilulissat is spectacular. The sunsets will give you heartwarming colours that will light up the town as well as the icebergs with its vivid colours. And at night it gets dark enough for the northern lights to show their dancing magical green and purple colours. And if you’re lucky you will see whales playing hide and seek in the waves.
You will see the famous icefjord, that is full of majestic icebergs with dazzling blue and white toned colours, that calved from Sermeq Kujalleq (Jakobshavn Glacier). Sermeq Kujalleq calves billions of tonnes of icebergs into the Disko Bay and the icefjord. It’s one of the few UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Greenland. They say that the Titanic itself sank because of an iceberg that calved from Sermeq Kujalleq
Greenland is a huge country, where there are only towns along the coastline. There are no roads that lead to other towns, except in and around the towns. You can only travel by plane or by boat. You will sail to a beautiful Island called Qeqertarsuaq and stay there for two days and explore the extraordinary surroundings. You will also sail to a small settlement called Oqaatsut and stay there for a night, it is rich in culture and holds old traditions alive.
The trip starts and ends in Ilulissat. The participant can decide their own route, they can either travel through Iceland or Denmark.
Get your camera ready and take your hiking shoes on and join this unforgettable adventure.
