Greenland is a land of harshness and contrast. Dark and freezing-cold in winter, in summer it changes its face and bathes in sunshine for months on end. In the west of the huge island lies Disko Bay, a haven of still water and beautiful landscapes. The magnificent Sermeq Qujalek (Ilulissat Glacier), which connects to the bay through the 60km long Kangia Fjord, is one of the world's fastest moving glaciers, constantly producing enormous icebergs, which float along the fjord to be dispersed in the bay.
After a long summer where the sun never sets, it first touches the horizon in late July, producing unbelievable light on the bay and its icebergs. This is the perfect timing to set sail among these giants, capturing the Arctic night in all its glory.
Join award-winning landscape photographer Erez Marom for 6 days of sailing and photography in this remote and wonderful part of our world. We will explore the bay every single night, shooting icebergs, mountains and whales under the midnight sun and occasionally getting off the boat to shoot the marvellous coastline in key points. Not to neglect the curious Arctic architecture, we will visit Inuit settlements and experience the area in depth.
The sails will be conducted in a fully-equipped, luxurious, super-fast Targa Speedboat. This unique feature cannot be overstated and will allow us to zoom around the bay and find the very best icebergs when time is critical. Distances are huge in Disko Bay and the speedboat will give us an overwhelming advantage, maximising photographic potential.
