Summer is the best time for photography in Greenland, when the light of the Midnight Sun casts an enchanting glow over the icebergs in the ice fjords. With so much daylight throughout the night, you'll spend entire evenings chasing beautiful compositions.
Can I see the Northern Lights in Greenland?
You'll be able to see the Northern Lights during our autumn photography workshop in South Greenland, when the days are shorter and the nights are dark enough for the stars to shine through. It's also a great time to go hiking for wonderful things to photograph onshore, such as mountains, wildlife and flowers.
How long is the flight time to Greenland?
It will take you approximately 4.5 hours to fly from Copenhagen in Denmark to Kangerlussuaq in Greenland.
