Night Sky Photography

- chasing the northern lights
Winter nights dress the landscape of Ilulissat, sometimes dotted-with-stars black, sometimes full-moon white and sometimes Northern-Lights green. No matter the color, we will show you how to best capture the incredible beauty and colours of the winter Arctic sky, using your camera.

The activity starts from our office, where we will be warm and comfortable. Our professional photographer will explain to you how to use your camera settings to capture stars and Northern Lights over a cup of coffee, tea and biscuits.

Then we go outside, and use snowshoes and ski poles. We walk to the best spot to put in use these techniques we have learned. We will take you to the Ilulissat Icefjord, the UNESCO World Heritage Site. From there, there is no sound or light polution, so you can fully experience the winter nights. Our snowshoeing guide will show you how to use the equipment and guide the route.

* We cannot guarantee the occurrence of northern lights on any given evenings. 

** The usage of snowshoes and ski poles is weather dependant. Sometimes the firmness of the snow makes wearing snowshoes an inconvenience in which case we won't wear them.
