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. Once you have landed in Kangerlussuaq, you will be able to take a flight towards your final destination. It takes approximately an hour to fly from Kangerlussuaq to Ilulissat. If you will be departing from Reykjavik in Iceland, then the flight time to Ilulissat will be approximately 3 hours.
What kind of clothing should I bring on my trip?
We suggest that you pack layers and wear warm, waterproof and wind resistant clothing. The weather is similar to Iceland, so for our Greenland photo tours, we suggest that you refer to our detailed packing list here.
Do I need to bring cash or can I use credit card in Greenland?
Most places in Greenland accept credit card. You can also withdraw cash from ATMs if needed.
