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.

Northwest Greenland in Autumn | Icebergs, glaciers and Inuit settlements

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.

Icebergs, Inuit Settlements and Aurora Phototour | Ilulissat | 8 days

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.  Scroll down to see more information in the full itinerary, and then reserve your place by clicking on “Book your tour” above.

Winter in Northwest Greenland | Icebergs, Glaciers & Inuit

Go on an exciting photography winter trip to Ilulissat and explore the Disko Bay with skilled tutors! The trip will start and end in Reykjavík, Iceland. Which will give you a chance to stay in Reykjavík before and -or after the main trip to Greenland. Ilulissat is located in the north-west. It is known for its’ beautiful nature, endless opportunities of activities and countless icebergs in the sea around the town. No wonder the name of the town Ilulissat means icebergs in Greenlandic. At this time of the year, Ilulissat looks like a winter wonderland, with snow-covered mountains, bright coloured wooden houses and an ocean filled with icebergs in white and blue toned colours. The sunrises and sunsets are spectacularly gorgeous, with multiple colours. The days are short but the sunrises/sunsets and extraordinary sceneries make it worthwhile. There will be a possibility to see aurora borealis (northern lights) in the evenings/nights. You will have the chance to capture auroras on your camera if the sky is clear. All the tutors are experienced in taking photos of Aurora and they will share their knowledge so you can go home with good and high-quality images. The UNESCO World Heritage Site, Sermeq Kujalleq (Jakobshavn Glacier) calves around 35 billion tons of iceberg into the sea of Disko Bay and the Icefjord each year. It is believed that Titanic sank because of that iceberg that calved from Sermeq kujalleq. You’re going to see the sunset by boat in the Icefjord. An amazing chance to capture a stunning moment on your camera. In Greenland, there are no roads between the settlements, only inside the towns. The only way to travel is by plane or by boat, and dog sledding in the northern part of Greenland. In Ilulissat, dog sleds have become normal transportation in wintertime for local hunters and fishermen. You will sail to two small settlements, Oqaatsut and Ilimanaq, where the old traditions still exist, along with their culture. You will spend three nights in Oqaatsut. Here you will experience the daily life of the locals, fishermen bringing fish and occasionally seal home, sled dogs howling and being surrounded by endless nature. There might be an opportunity to experience dog sledding and some aerial photography. Press ‘choose a date’ to find availability for this tour.
