Ilulissat is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This fjord is one of the few glaciers through which the Greenland ice cap reaches the sea. Annually it generates more than 35 km3 of ice. The combination of huge ice floes, beautiful soft light and clear skies makes it a dramatic and impressive natural phenomenon.
After a long summer in which the sun never sets, it touches the horizon for the first time at the end of July, producing an incredible light over the bay and its icebergs. This is the perfect time to sail among these giants, capturing the Arctic night in all its glory.
We will explore the bay every night, photographing icebergs, mountains and whales under the midnight sun, and occasionally getting off the boat to photograph the wonderful coast at key points.
Day 1. (20-07-20) Meeting in Ilulissat
Upon arrival at Ilulissat airport, we will be picked up and taken to our hotel to rest a little from the trip.
We will have dinner in the hotel restaurant and talk about the next few days.
Days 2-6 (21-7 / 26-7) Disko Bay
During 4 of the 5 nights of the workshop, we will leave from the port of Ilulissat for several hours, starting in the late afternoon (normally around 11pm), to sail in search of incredible icebergs and be able to photograph them in perfect light conditions during sunset and sunrise, which are between half an hour and two hours apart at this time of year.
When the sunrise is over and we are all tired, we will go back to the hotel to rest.
In the late morning or early afternoon, we will get up to walk around the city of Ilulissat, which has many monuments, beautiful buildings and some interesting museums.
After dinner, we will take the boat again for another glorious photo session among the icebergs and other landscapes.
During our sessions there is a high probability of finding whales, which are particularly photogenic under the soft arctic light, and with beautiful mountains and icebergs as a backdrop.
In addition to photographing from the boat, we will photograph several locations on land, such as the Ilimanaq settlement, a village south of Ilulissat. We will also walk to the edge of the huge Kangia Fjord to see and photograph the giant icebergs floating in the bay.
Another settlement we will visit is Rodebay, a Dutch whaling village, still active.
Once we finish the photo session of the last morning, we will return to the port, have breakfast and finish the workshop.
Transfer to Ilulissat airport for our return flight.
A full travel insurance is included in the price of the trip.
