About Greenland

I photographed this group of photographers in the Disko Bay one early morning. I still think they were pushing the limits a little bit with regards to how close to the edge of ice they seem to be, but I'm guessing the captain was in 100% control. By Stian Klo

Icebergs

Learn more about Icebergs, majestic natural works of art heading out to sea which are up to 100 metres high. These sculptures are a formidable sight especially in the summer!

The 13 Best Viewpoints in Ilulissat

Ilulissat is the third largest town in Greenland, and the iceberg capital of the country. The spectacular Ilulissat icefjord finishes just behind town and spills out natural sculptures of ice into the bay around Ilulissat. This means that there is hardly a viewpoint in the city which does not have a backdrop of majestically floating icebergs.
