Greenland. 8-15.08.2018

Disco Bay.

For the fifth time we are going to visit Greenland, the land of icebergs, one of the most mysterious and attractive places on our planet.
We are going to visit villages in Greenland, hunt for icebergs, whales and good light. Those who are fond of fishing will get a chance to try their luck on board a yacht any day of our tour.
Greenland is calling for us, and we are inviting you, dear friends, to join this exciting journey!

  • A 8 days long workshop with 7 nights of sailing in the Disko Bay area, shooting spectacular icebergs and impressive landscapes in calm waters in a boat fit for 9 participants of the group and their equipment (weather permitting). Our boat is perfect for our causes, having a large area for ourselves and our equipment, allowing us to shoot comfortably - a considerable advantage.
  • Visits to several land locations and small Greenlandic settlements in Disko Bay
  • Perfect timing: the first night of the workshop is the first night the sun touches the horizon for the first time in summer. This guarantees the best probability of magical midnight-sun light, allowing us to shoot for hours in optimal conditions
  • Whale watching and photography
  • Professional photo guidance by landscape photographer of Adventuretime.pro

ITINERARY

Day 1,2. Ilulissat. Meeting at the airport, getting on board the yacht, buying food supply guided by our cook, having a rest after the flight. The crew will be getting ready to start out. By the way, “Ilulissat” means “an iceberg”. We are going to start our journey with the fiords of Ilulissat. (//D)


Day 3. Aasiaat. Many people travel to Greenland to see with their own eyes the unique beauty and grandeur of icebergs, some of which look like modern skyscrapers. Also, whales can be seen quite often in these places. We should always be on guard, with the camera in our hands.(B/L/D)


Day 4. Kekertarsuak. The town is situated on the island of Disko. If the weather is good enough during our stay there we shall take a walk to the valley of winds, admire the waterfalls and visit the black beach hidden from people's eyes by basaltic cliffs.(B/L/D)


Day 5. Uummannaq – a most beautiful place situated at the foot of a grand mountain.(B/L/D)


Day 6. Sarkak. According to our experience, we have a chance to see the largest, absolutely enourmous icebergs there. These giants look especially gracious in the rays of sunset. (B/L/D)


Day 7. Okkaatsut. Okkaatsut or Rodebay – a name given to the place by Dutch whalers who held their hunt there in the beginning of the 18th century. Rodebay means “a red harbour” in Dutch. This is a very beautiful place especially when fog rolls over it in the evening. The famous bar H8 where tough whalers gather in the evening to sing their strange songs is situated here in this town. It is rather cozy to spend a night there with a bottle of wine having a seafood supper. You will be able to watch icebergs drifting past the place out of the window. If you can write poems or stories you will certainly meet your muse here. (B/L/D)


Day 8. Ilulissat. We are going to return to the port with a large baggage of impressions and emotions from what we have seen and come through. Ceremonial dinner to celebrate the end of our journey. We are saying good-buy to you, my friends.(B/L/D)

Photography Equipment

  • A digital camera, preferrably a DSLR camera with a full-frame sensor, since these cameras have better low-light capabilities. However, a crop-sensor DSLR will also completely suffice. A compact camera can be used, as long as you understand its limitations.
    NOTE: I highly recommend bringing two camera bodies. It will make your life much easier when shooting with multiple lenses, which is often desired.
  • A light tripod for shooting on land.
  • An ultra wide angle lens (preferably stabilized). For example, a Canon 16-35mm IS on a FF sensor camera, or a Nikon 10-24 on a crop sensor camera.
  • A mid-range zoom lens such as a 24-70mm (preferably stabilized).
  • A telephoto zoom lens, such as a 70-300mm or 100-400mm - the longer the better, preferably stabilized. I use a Canon 70-300mm in addition to a Sigma 150-600mm for telephoto shots.
  • Recommended: A filter set for landscape photography.


Clothing

  • Thermal gear is essential. I recommend bringing a few light thermal shirts, a fleece jacket and a down coat for the cold nights.
  • Warm gloves. It's important to use gloves which enable you to operate the camera while wearing them.
  • Thermal long-johns
  • Thermal socks. I recommend bringing at least 2 pairs.
  • A neck-warmer or a scarf
  • A good warm hat which covers your ears.
  • Hiking shoes.


Other

  • Pills against motion sickness, if you're especially prone to it.
  • Sun glasses
  • Bug spray
