High Arctic Expedition

High Arctic - Arctic Exposure

We are proudly offering the photography adventure of a lifetime in Greenland—a land-based expedition to the high Arctic. This will be a very small group of no more than six participants with two experienced guides.

This is the expedition for the serious landscape and wildlife photographer who is willing to step out of the comfort zone, embrace the elements and explore the Arctic for the opportunity to get amazing imagery.

We will expect the unexpected and go with the flow of our surroundings. After all, the best photos are often the result of unplanned photo opportunities.

You will have the chance to go out searching for polar bears, muskox, birds, walruses, seals, sled dogs, as well as icebergs as tall as buildings, jaw-dropping mountains, Inuit settlements and local hunters in remote and isolated locations. This is a land-based expedition, with boat and snowmobile excursions with local hunters.
