Photography Tour | South Greenland

We invite you to join our unique expedition on “Aurora” yacht to Greenland. We plan to sail through the southern fjords of Greenland in autumn and to sail through the legendary Tasermiut fjord and Prince Christian Sound.The number of people is strictly limited – only 8 persons for this beautiful  expedition.The classical tour to Greenland differs a lot from our style. You’ll be offered to sail on “zodiacs” only during some hours but we can always sail and hunt the light and best perspectives during the whole night and to stay mobile at the same time. The previous experience has shown that a good team and a maneuverable yacht give an incredibly beautiful result. Our timetable is more or less free. Ideally we want to go to the entrance of Prince Christian Fjord and Tasermiut fjords, but that’s not the main goal. The main goal is to shoot beautiful icebergs, fjords and high granite peaks of the region. That’s why we’ll work out our everyday timetable taking into account ice situation and the weather.The advantages of traveling by arctic class yacht are obvious: big cruises are enormously expensive (about $10,000 usually), the yacht is more mobile and we can listen to every participant’s opinion what is difficult in a team of 30-50 people on board. Big ships can scare away the animals and can’t be as mobile as we are. The yacht has both rigs and a motor. Moreover, we have a quick and maneuver “Zodiac” which can be launched at any moment to get closer to the animals or to go ashore. Safety measures’ questions are paid special attention: satellite phone, navigational system and ice maps.So what is the Prince Christian Sound? That is rugged terrain, lots of high amazing peaks. I call this place “Arctic Patagonia” because of numerous granite walls. You can take a glance on the area we intend to explore by eyes of hikers: 1) 25-day hiking and packrafting expedition through extreme Southern Greenland. Pictures and Video. Trip report part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4 and part 5. 2) Greenland hiking, 2009 3) Greenland Big Wall Kayak Trip – The Map 4) Stunning Tasermiut fjord photosBut instead of kayaks and hiking with all the gear and wear we have a yacht! So no need to hiking in wild conditions and rafting for weeks. We’ll see everything in comfort at best suitable times for photography. But this trip involves plenty of easy hiking. Some of hikes are radial one-day from the yacht. No need of camping! You will be always in comfort, and you can always charge your batteries 24 hours per day, and enjoy meals made by our chef on board with local meats, fish and vegetables.There will be  radial-hiking trips on the tour! But always there is a possibility to stay at the shore, near the waterfall etc. There’s always alternative to stay near the shore if you feel not fit for hikes: there are beautiful lakes, rivers and waterfalls close to the shore at almost every location.We’ve chosen September as it is the best time for visit Big Walls: there is a major chance of solar activity and thus northern lights at dark nights! But do not expect to see many icebergs on this tour. It is mainly about mountain landscape, northern lights and incredible autumn colors.Air tickets: we will buy air tickets in the beginning of 2018 (February-March), when the air Greenland/Iceland schedule will be out. Notice that flight to Greenland are expensive (expect the price around 1000 usd for return ticket – air fare is not included in the price).Yacht AuroraSpecially built vessel for Arctic adventures, steel hull. Cabins with bunk beds – 2 separate beds per cabin (lower bed could be used as double for couples).  We’ve remastered this yacht in 2017, so it still shines with new paint. Among facilities:Comfortable kitchen with living roomFresh water from desalinatorWashing machineFull day electricity 220 V supply to charge your batteries2 bathrooms with showerservices of cook on boardsauna!modern safety/navigation systems“Aurora” yacht is an arctic class yacht with a steel hull equipped with modern navigation system. You can use the kitchen with sitting area, two separate WC, shower. The yacht’s team is 4 or 5 professional sailors + 8 photographers on board. There is one zodiac (a motor boat) on the yacht. There are 220 V constantly operating sockets, freshwater supplies (700 + 200 liters) and distiller. We organize Greenland photo tours with “Peter-1” since 2015  and tested “Aurora” this year at Svalbard and Greenland. Several years ago the team set a world record and went on the Arctic circumnavigation in one season.“Aurora”  is a very solidly built ship. Literally it’s made of steel. The ship is fitted out for worldwide sailing and has all the safety certificates and permissions required under worldwide requirements for visiting Antarctica. 4-5 experienced, professional members of the crew will ensure the our safe operation. Our safety equipment include life jackets, life raft, fire extinguishing equipment, a stock of medicine, EPIRB and radar transponder. “Aurora” navigation and communication equipment includes radar, a compass, a satellite navigation system, an echo sounder, a sextant, SSB transmitter, Inmarsat-C terminals, an Iridium Satellite telephone, VHF transmitter.“Aurora” has a zodiac with outboard fast engine. The drinking water capacity is 750 litres in permanent tanks + distliller. Food stores will be taken on board before our departure in Ushuaia.

Plugs on board are European style, two pins.Dates are stated +-2 days! We depend on Air Greenland schedule! Please do not expect to see lots of icebergs on this trip. Instead we will see incredible granite peaks and autumn colors of valleys with chance of nortern lights + very cute and unique villages.Mandatory trip cancellation insurance + health insurance You must have full coverage of the trip + air tickets in case you miss flights (or in case of delayed flights).

Biking, hiking & kayaking | South Greenland

Do I even need to tell you WHY you should join this tour? I mean, look at the photos. Do you like being sporty while holidaying? Do you like finding alternative ways to get from A -  B while holidaying? Do you prefer spending as much time in the nature as possible? This is the tour just for you. Combining a tour on two wheels, by paddling and by walking, can and will take you to places you never thought existed. It will take you to places not many has been to - because you can't go there without either riding your bike, kayaking or hiking to the destination. But why Greenland? Lonely Planet named this country #9 on their Top 10 Countries to see in 2016. There are 195 countries in the world. The tourism industry has been expanding ever since. But what mesmerizes me so much, is that everywhere you go, still seems so untouched and pure. This 12 day tour will take you to the southern part of Greenland. You will visit villages with no more than 40 people living there. You will see towns with 1.500 people living there. This will automatically give you an impression of the greenlandic people, culture and traditions. You will be walking through valleys, hiking to viewpoints, seeing tons of icebergs and paddling amongst them. You will be sleeping in tents under the stars. Who knows, you might get to see the northern lights too? You will never walk alone, as your guide will guide and instruct you, everyday to make sure that you're safe, that you get all your questions answered and so he/she can teach you some greenlandic language - maybe. Are you ready for 12 days you will forever remember? Pack your bags and your camera!

Photography Tour | South Greenland

We invite you to join our unique expedition on “Aurora” yacht to Greenland. We plan to sail through the southern fjords of Greenland in autumn and to sail through the legendary Tasermiut fjord and Prince Christian Sound.The number of people is strictly limited – only 8 persons for this beautiful  expedition.The classical tour to Greenland differs a lot from our style. You’ll be offered to sail on “zodiacs” only during some hours but we can always sail and hunt the light and best perspectives during the whole night and to stay mobile at the same time. The previous experience has shown that a good team and a maneuverable yacht give an incredibly beautiful result. Our timetable is more or less free. Ideally we want to go to the entrance of Prince Christian Fjord and Tasermiut fjords, but that’s not the main goal. The main goal is to shoot beautiful icebergs, fjords and high granite peaks of the region. That’s why we’ll work out our everyday timetable taking into account ice situation and the weather.The advantages of traveling by arctic class yacht are obvious: big cruises are enormously expensive (about $10,000 usually), the yacht is more mobile and we can listen to every participant’s opinion what is difficult in a team of 30-50 people on board. Big ships can scare away the animals and can’t be as mobile as we are. The yacht has both rigs and a motor. Moreover, we have a quick and maneuver “Zodiac” which can be launched at any moment to get closer to the animals or to go ashore. Safety measures’ questions are paid special attention: satellite phone, navigational system and ice maps.So what is the Prince Christian Sound? That is rugged terrain, lots of high amazing peaks. I call this place “Arctic Patagonia” because of numerous granite walls. You can take a glance on the area we intend to explore by eyes of hikers: 1) 25-day hiking and packrafting expedition through extreme Southern Greenland. Pictures and Video. Trip report part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4 and part 5. 2) Greenland hiking, 2009 3) Greenland Big Wall Kayak Trip – The Map 4) Stunning Tasermiut fjord photosBut instead of kayaks and hiking with all the gear and wear we have a yacht! So no need to hiking in wild conditions and rafting for weeks. We’ll see everything in comfort at best suitable times for photography. But this trip involves plenty of easy hiking. Some of hikes are radial one-day from the yacht. No need of camping! You will be always in comfort, and you can always charge your batteries 24 hours per day, and enjoy meals made by our chef on board with local meats, fish and vegetables.There will be  radial-hiking trips on the tour! But always there is a possibility to stay at the shore, near the waterfall etc. There’s always alternative to stay near the shore if you feel not fit for hikes: there are beautiful lakes, rivers and waterfalls close to the shore at almost every location.We’ve chosen September as it is the best time for visit Big Walls: there is a major chance of solar activity and thus northern lights at dark nights! But do not expect to see many icebergs on this tour. It is mainly about mountain landscape, northern lights and incredible autumn colors.Air tickets: we will buy air tickets in the beginning of 2018 (February-March), when the air Greenland/Iceland schedule will be out. Notice that flight to Greenland are expensive (expect the price around 1000 usd for return ticket – air fare is not included in the price).Yacht AuroraSpecially built vessel for Arctic adventures, steel hull. Cabins with bunk beds – 2 separate beds per cabin (lower bed could be used as double for couples).  We’ve remastered this yacht in 2017, so it still shines with new paint.
