Greenland Scoresby Sound Sailing Expedition
On this Arctic sailing expedition of the Scoresby Sound in Greenland, you will explore one of the most isolated areas in the world that offers incredible photographic opportunities. This tour has been designed for the serious landscape and wildlife enthusiast who is willing to explore the Arctic, travel off the beaten path and sacrifice comfort for the opportunity to get amazing imagery.
On the Greenland Scoresby Sound Sailing Expedition, you have the rare opportunity to photograph icebergs the size of skyscrapers, steep mountains that plunge into the sea, deep fjords, immense glaciers, sled dogs, breaching whales, northern lights and the unique culture of Greenland. We have scheduled this expedition for September to optimize the chance of capturing the fall colours, first snow in the mountains and, of course, the northern lights.
Scoresby Sound is a large fjord system on the eastern coast of Greenland and the Greenland Sea. It is one of the largest and longest fjord systems in the world. With a tree-like shape, the main body of the fjord is approximately 110 km (68 mi) long and branches into a system of fjords covering an area of about 38,000 km2 (14,700 sq mi). With a population of 469, the only permanent settlement in the region, Ittoqqortoormiit, is tucked away on the northern side of the mouth of the Scoresby Sund.
