EAST GREENLAND

Join us on a Greenland photo tour with our expert team! East Greenland is one of the best places in the Arctic to photograph breathtaking landscapes and massive icebergs. We will use the expedition ship MS Freya to explore the Scoresbysund fjord system and visit the Inuit village Ittoqqortoormiit. The main subjects on this Greenland photo tour will be grand landscapes, icebergs and Arctic wildlife.

August is a great time in the Arctic when the midnight sun season is coming to an end. The colors on the night sky can be great for photography at this time. This Greenland photo tour will schedule for longer stops than usual when going ashore in order to provide participants with enough time to get excellent pictures. We use 2 zodiac boats for landings or when searching for the wildlife at sea. There will be 14 guests on this expedition.

Greenland is famous for massive icebergs and grand landscapes, but does not have the density of wildlife as we normally see on Svalbard. However, there are good possibilities for photographing Arctic hare, seals, seabirds, and maybe also Musk Ox and Polar bear.
