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 MV Polar Pioneer to explore the world’s largest fjord system – Scoresby Sound. The main subjects on this Greenland photo tour will be grand landscapes, icebergs and Arctic wildlife.

September is a great time in the Arctic when the autumn light is at its best. 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 5 zodiac boats for landings or when searching for the wildlife at sea. There will be maximum 53 guests on this expedition.

East 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.

We also plan to visit the native village Ittoqqortoormiit, home to some 450 Greenlanders and the only settlement in Northeast Greenland.
