Midnight Sun Photo Workshop | Disko Bay

Come along on this magical journey north of the Arctic Circle, to the stunning seascapes of ice and midnight sun in the Disko Bay. The area is well known for its regular visits by humpbacks, fin whales and lots of seals, so make sure to keep an eye on the water! The Icefjord is usually very calm, barely with any waves, so spotting wildlife and capturing incredible reflections is definitely within grasp. Disko Bay is located on the west coast of Greenland, where for the entire duration of the trip, the group will be staying at a 4-star hotel, to ensure the group will be well rested and well fed! The hotel is also within walking distance for all of Ilulissats gems, such as the colourful houses, dogsleds, warm-hearted locals, museums and fish markets, which are all great opportunities for experiences while the camera batteries are charging. The unique thing about Greenland is the lack of highways and roads to connect villages, meaning that transport is easiest by sea, which means the tours will be with a chartered boat for the entirety of the adventure. During the journey you will get to visit a variety of Greenlandic villages and settlements such as; Oqaatsut, Aasiaat and Qasigiannguit. Most of the travelling and photography will be during the night at the best hours of the midnight sun, where the conditions will be unlike anything you've ever experienced before! The sessions will often begin late in the evening and carry on into the night, to chase the best light and spectacular sceneries. When the sun is low in the horizon, the light becomes more saturated with deep icy blues as well as fiery red skies. This light lasts approx. 2-4 hours, which we will chase by cruising every evening. This adventure is suitable for all levels of experience and ability, we have a savvy captain, with an uncanny ability to find the best spots from behind the rudder, as well as being used to working with photographers and knows the area extremely well. However, note that the itinerary is subject to changes according to weather conditions, the one thing we promise is that we can get you to the best locations and help you go home with an inspiring catalogue you can be proud of!So what are you waiting for!

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.

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.

Iceberg, Glaciers & Inuit Settlement | Ilulissat | Disko Bay

Wild Photography Holidays are excited to add a brand new winter trip to Greenland. The dates of these first two departures have been chosen to make the most of the fabulous winter landscapes and low light that can be found in Greenland at this time of year. The sunrises and sunsets tend to be spectacular and the big arctic skies are dark enough for the possibility of aurora. We start and finish the trip in Reykjavík giving participants the chance to add a few days in Iceland before or after the main trip. Our main Greenland base, Ilulissat (formerly Jakobshavn) means “Icebergs” in the West Greenlandic language. Each year, the massive Jakobshavn Glacier calves some 35 billion tons of icebergs into the sheltered waters of Disko Bay and the ice fiord. It is the only UNESCO World Heritage Site on the world’s largest island. Towers, arches, and walls of ancient blue ice thrust skyward from the water’s surface. The whole fiord gives an ever-changing vista as huge icebergs float past in dramatic light en route to open sea. It’s believed that an iceberg that calved from this magnificent glacier sank the Titanic itself. A first sighting of this unique arctic wonderland is guaranteed to make your photographic heart beat faster. In wintertime the snow cover means that dog sledging becomes a normal way of transport for the local people who hunt and transport fish. A huge country, it is populated rather sparsely only around the coast. Indeed, there are no roads to anywhere except in and around the settlements and the only way to travel is by boat, air, dog sledge and foot. Travelling by boat, we navigate the ice filled waters at sunset. We sail to small settlements still alive with ancient traditions with a culture still very much tied to the ocean and prevailing weather conditions. Spending two nights in one settlement allows us to really get ‘under the skin’ of daily life there. Brightly coloured wooden houses sit on snow covered rocky bluffs; small fishing boats bring in Halibut, Crab plus the occasional Seal. There may be an optional opportunity to experience some aerial photography and dog sledging. This is a truly an inspiring adventure exploring locations that are only now becoming more accessible to photographers.

Iceberg, Glaciers & Inuit Settlement | Ilulissat | Disko Bay

Wild Photography Holidays are excited to add a brand new winter trip to Greenland. The dates of these first two departures have been chosen to make the most of the fabulous winter landscapes and low light that can be found in Greenland at this time of year. The sunrises and sunsets tend to be spectacular and the big arctic skies are dark enough for the possibility of aurora. We start and finish the trip in Reykjavík giving participants the chance to add a few days in Iceland before or after the main trip. Our main Greenland base, Ilulissat (formerly Jakobshavn) means “Icebergs” in the West Greenlandic language. Each year, the massive Jakobshavn Glacier calves some 35 billion tons of icebergs into the sheltered waters of Disko Bay and the ice fiord. It is the only UNESCO World Heritage Site on the world’s largest island. Towers, arches, and walls of ancient blue ice thrust skyward from the water’s surface. The whole fiord gives an ever-changing vista as huge icebergs float past in dramatic light en route to open sea. It’s believed that an iceberg that calved from this magnificent glacier sank the Titanic itself. A first sighting of this unique arctic wonderland is guaranteed to make your photographic heart beat faster. In wintertime the snow cover means that dog sledging becomes a normal way of transport for the local people who hunt and transport fish. A huge country, it is populated rather sparsely only around the coast. Indeed, there are no roads to anywhere except in and around the settlements and the only way to travel is by boat, air, dog sledge and foot. Travelling by boat, we navigate the ice filled waters at sunset. We sail to small settlements still alive with ancient traditions with a culture still very much tied to the ocean and prevailing weather conditions. Spending two nights in one settlement allows us to really get ‘under the skin’ of daily life there. Brightly coloured wooden houses sit on snow covered rocky bluffs; small fishing boats bring in Halibut, Crab plus the occasional Seal. There may be an optional opportunity to experience some aerial photography and dog sledging. This is a truly an inspiring adventure exploring locations that are only now becoming more accessible to photographers.

Midnight Sun Photo Workshop | Disko Bay

Come along on this magical journey north of the Arctic Circle, to the stunning seascapes of ice and midnight sun in the Disko Bay. The area is well known for its regular visits by humpbacks, fin whales and lots of seals, so make sure to keep an eye on the water! The Icefjord is usually very calm, barely with any waves, so spotting wildlife and capturing incredible reflections is definitely within grasp. Disko Bay is located on the west coast of Greenland, where for the entire duration of the trip, the group will be staying at a 4-star hotel, to ensure the group will be well rested and well fed! The hotel is also within walking distance for all of Ilulissats gems, such as the colourful houses, dogsleds, warm-hearted locals, museums and fish markets, which are all great opportunities for experiences while the camera batteries are charging. The unique thing about Greenland is the lack of highways and roads to connect villages, meaning that transport is easiest by sea, which means the tours will be with a chartered boat for the entirety of the adventure. During the journey you will get to visit a variety of Greenlandic villages and settlements such as; Oqaatsut, Aasiaat and Qasigiannguit. Most of the travelling and photography will be during the night at the best hours of the midnight sun, where the conditions will be unlike anything you've ever experienced before! The sessions will often begin late in the evening and carry on into the night, to chase the best light and spectacular sceneries. When the sun is low in the horizon, the light becomes more saturated with deep icy blues as well as fiery red skies. This light lasts approx. 2-4 hours, which we will chase by cruising every evening. This adventure is suitable for all levels of experience and ability, we have a savvy captain, with an uncanny ability to find the best spots from behind the rudder, as well as being used to working with photographers and knows the area extremely well. However, note that the itinerary is subject to changes according to weather conditions, the one thing we promise is that we can get you to the best locations and help you go home with an inspiring catalogue you can be proud of!So what are you waiting for! Click on 'Choose a date' above to join this 6 day, 5 nights adventure in wonderful Greenland.

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.

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.
