West Greenland Disko Bay

Big Landscapes and Charming Villages in West Greenland

August 22–29, 2023

Ilulissat in Western Greenland is home to the most productive glacier in the Arctic—the Jakobshavn Glacier—which calves enormous icebergs into Disko Bay. The icebergs can tower over 300 feet out of the water and produce fantastic and surreal shapes. The surrounding fjords are part of a rich ecosystem that is home to many species of whale, seal and sea bird, as well as the Inuit people.

Each day we will depart from the port in Ilulissat to explore different areas of Disko Bay including the charming small village of Oqaatsut and the breathtaking Eqi Glacier. We will be traveling on a comfortable Targa boat featuring plenty of deck space as well as a heated indoor space for you to warm up in. During the evening we will stay at a fabulous centrally located hotel with sweeping balcony views, all the modern amenities, and a fantastic restaurant featuring a variety of exciting Greenlandic cuisine.

This is a drone-friendly adventure, so feel free to bring yours for stunning aerial shots of the icebergs and maybe even some friendly humpback whales. Expect to be shooting during the late afternoon and evening hours when the light is the most stunning.
