    A chance of photographing the Aurora Borealis / Northern Lights

Ilulissat is the largest town of the Avannaata municipality in western Greenland, located approximately 350 km north of the Arctic Circle. With the population of roughly 4500 it is the third largest city in Greenland. The city is home to almost as many sled dogs as people. The Ilulissat Icefjord is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and the most productive glacier in the Northern Hemisphere. The glacier flows at a rate of 20–35 m per day, resulting in around 20 billion tons of icebergs calved off and passing out of the fjord every year, meaning endless photographic opportunities as we explore the fjord.


Our basecamp for the entire duration of the tour will be at Hotel Arctic, the world’s most northerly 4-star hotel located right on the edge of the Ilulissat Ice Fjord. One look outside your bedroom window and you will understand why this is viewed as one of the most unique places on earth.


If we are blessed with starry nights and clear skies, we might be able to capture the elusive and strikingly beautiful Aurora Borealis as she dances on the night skies.

The weather in Greenland is very unpredictable. Conditions and light changes constantly, so make sure to read the clothing and gear lists provided. Don’t hesitate to contact us should you be unsure what to bring.


We want you to leave with the best possible pictures so both guides will there to help in case you are wandering about something. You will never be left alone.
