Reviews for Greenland winter photography tour


review 12 Mar 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

There are many.......the pain of my feet defrosting after several hours in -35 deg and inappropriate footwear....... the incredible beauty of the icebergs in the Illulisaat Iceford.......the angst of the old dog, chained and half wild at the prospect of being taken along with the dog pack to run......the smiley, old Inuit couple who cooked and cleaned for us in Oqaatsut.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Probably wise to know how to use your camera before you arrive in Greenland, where the weather conditions make it less favourable to learn the basics of photography.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, through directly employing them. I think our impact would need to be monitored if the numbers of visitors were to increase, I'm not sure the infrastructure is strong enough to cope. Had I known about the difficulties of getting local currency I would have travelled with some. There was a small gift shop, that seemed to open up when we walked passed, selling locally made items and some fridge magnets etc. Unfortunately I only had euros.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Fantastic. A very interesting group of teachers and guests, I was very lucky to benefit from so many experienced and patient photographers who shared their knowledge with me. Beautiful landscapes, great food, comfortable accommodation. A very inspiring trip.
