Greenland North
Exploring the northeastern parts of Greenland
Explore northeastern parts of Greenland
WildPhoto Travel has arranged photo expeditions to Svalbard and Greenland with great photo opportunities. This expedition is the second WildPhoto Travel has organized combining both Svalbard, Greenland, and the drifting sea ice in between. We will use our expedition ship Polar Pioneer (52 pax) which has a high ice class and was refitted in 2022. WE HOPE TO OFFER THIS TRIP AGAIN IN AUGUST 2025.
Most of the days will be spent along the northeastern and eastern coast of Greenland with great landscapes and wildlife. The light conditions in the end of August is appealing for photographers and we hope to give you great memories and photographs during this special expedition.
Itinerary Greenland Northeast
Northern parts of Greenland is located at about 80 degrees North, so we schedule this expedition in accordance with prevailing weather and ice conditions. The expedition will start in Longyearbyen (Svalbard) and end in Akureyri (Iceland). An Itinerary layout for a Northeast Greenland expedition is described below together with a map illustrating a possible sailing route. Please note that the sea ice conditions at the end of August varies from year to year, so it is not possible to know in advance which areas on the northeastern coast of Greenland will be available for landings and zodiac cruises.
DAY 1 - Departure from Longyearbyen (Svalbard) through Isfjorden.
DAY 2-3 - Northwestern coast of Spitsbergen, with possible visits to Kongsfjorden, and maybe also further north to Magdalenefjorden, Smeerenburgfjorden, and Raudfjorden where we will have great landscapes, glaciers and possibilities to view and photograph wildlife.
DAY 4-5 - Heading west toward Greenland, where we at some point will meet the drifting sea ice. In this area, we hope to have encounters with Polar bears, seals, whales, and ice-dependent birds.
DAY 6-12 - Exploring the northeastern coast of Greenland toward Scoresby Sound. Depending on the sea ice condition we will visit areas with sea ice and fjords with great mountains and icebergs.
DAY 13 - Exploring the outer parts of Scoresby Sound.
DAY 14 - At sea, heading toward Akureyri (Iceland).
DAY 15 - Disembarking the ship in Akureyri (Iceland) ending the expedition.
