East Greenland is an established photo tour destination, and in the backcountry around Tasiilaq, the combination of alpine landscapes, ice fjords, the neighboring ice sheet, and small local communities makes this a popular place for adventurous photographers. They tend to use the logistical expertise of Travellodge Greenland [link] and Red House Tasiilaq [link] for small group travel, and the primary season is in August and September when the harsh summer light fades and becomes more manageable.
In North Greenland, in Disko Bay around the main town Ilulissat [link], and at the UNESCO world heritage site by the ice fjord Kangia, photographers take advantage of a concentration of locations which give access to icebergs, whales, local hunting and fishing communities and the volcanic rocks on Disko Island, all neatly tied together by a network of boat routes between towns and settlements.
South Greenland is a farming landscape set on a backdrop of sharp peaks, ice fjords, flower fields, and colorful coastal towns in a region known for its well preserved norse settlement ruins and Atlantic feel.
Other locations on the west coast of Greenland offer semi-urban cultural experiences and fjordscapes, while the far north offers Arctic desert, extreme seasonal differences, and unique lighting conditions for explorers of light who like expedition-style adventures and new challenges.
