About the Ilulissat Icefjord, Disko Bay Area in Greenland

The Disko Bay area is situated on the west coast of Greenland, 250 km north of the Arctic Circle. We will primarily focus on two locations in this area:  Ilulissat Icefjord and Disko Island.

Ilulissat features the UNESCO World Heritage Site Ilulissat Icefjord. This Icefjord is one of the few glaciers through which the Greenland icecap reaches the sea. It annually calves over 35 km3 of ice. The combination of huge icebergs, beautiful soft light and clear skies makes for a dramatic and awe-inspiring natural phenomenon.

The landscape of Disko Island was created by volcanic activity and is therefore characterized by basalt hills. It features an interesting coastline with black beaches, columnar basalt rock formations and beautiful waterfalls. The island also has unique lush vegetation, with beautiful autumn colors, that cannot be found elsewhere in Greenland.

About the Ilulissat & Disko Bay Greenland Photography Tour

We will explore Disko Bay and Ilulissat Icefjord area on foot, by boat and by helicopter.

In and around Ilulissat we will:

      • hike to multiple locations to shoot the colorful village and the icebergs from different perspectives under varying light conditions

      • sail in between the icebergs on a private boat to capture them from a different angle

      • fly around with a helicopter to experience the vast landscape of Greenland and the UNESCO Icefjord from above

On Disko Island we will:

      • explore a spectacular area with basalt rosettes, arches and (sea) stacks as well as lush vegetation

      • hike along a river to a gorgeous area with waterfalls

      • visit a black beach featuring growlers (small remainders of the icebergs)


Johan and myself will be available to teach you, answer your questions, offer guidance and assist you with your photographic needs. In addition to the in-the-field time, we will provide presentations and workshops to help you get the best of this Greenland Photography Tour.
