Ilulissat Icefjord // Greenland

Sailing among some of the largest icebergs on the planet. A compilation of photos shot in and around Ilulissat, Disko Bay, in Western Greenland.

The landscape reminds you of mountains and peaks but everything is just made out of ice. It's a different world out there and it's changing fast.
Disko Bay is frequented by several whales in the summer. Pictured here are pods of humpback whales. You can hear the unmistakable sound of these majestic creatures from quite a distance!
That's not a rock - a humpback whale makes an enormous lunge to catch a mouthful of fish and krill near the surface. Gutsy seagulls swoop in trying to steal this out of the mouth of the whale. These large whales are gentle giants, and only eat some of the smallest animals in the world, but we saw many close calls of gulls accidentally being swallowed!
Careful planning, an amazing sailing crew and a group of photographer friends, helped us get shots such as this moonrise.
Summer days in Greenland are long and sunsets just go on forever.

Sailing through otherworldly landscapes.

An Arctic fulmar flies over the raw and icy, untouched landscape.

Beautiful views as our two yachts, the Rusarc Aurora and Peter the First, circle a pieces of ice - nature's ephemeral work of art. The icebergs continuously move, rotate and transform; the very next day, it had collapsed.
Incredible views of vast glaciers, lakes, unreal terrain and the vast Greenland icesheet in the distance. Flying between Ilulissat and Kangerlussuaq on a very clear day.
Scale can be mind-boggling. These icebergs in the Ilulissat icefjord are enormous and even have their own little pools, streams and sometimes waterfalls on the side. This is a land where things are constantly changing, and nowadays at a faster pace than ever before.
