The most amazing locations in Greenland

Greenland is located in the Arctic, east of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago and northwest of Europe. Its surface is 2,175,600 square kilometers, of which 81% is covered by the perpetual ice of the North East Greenland National Park, the second largest frozen desert in the world.

The best time to visit Greenland is during the summer months July and August, when the weather is more benevolent. Between April and June there are more daylight hours. March, although colder, is the best month to see the northern lights. In Greenland just over 56,000 people live, of which almost 90% are Inuit.

Photographic safaris through the fjords, visits to Inuit villages, excursions to the frozen mountains, cruises on the Disko bay to see walruses and whales, dog sled crossings, helicopter rides and trekkings of different difficulty are some of the activities you can perform in Greenland for your audiovisual project.

In Greenland there are no railways and hardly any roads. Therefore, transfers between towns are done by plane, helicopter, boat or kayak, a factor to consider if you are thinking about doing a photographic shooting or an audiovisual production there.

Nuuk

The capital of Greenland. Culture, nature and art meet in this authentic and cosmopolitan city. Some 15% of the inhabitants of the island live here and the Parliament, the University and the National Museum are located here. Nuuk has an important commercial port and is an excellent base for exploring the fjords of the south of the island.

Surrounded by nature, old traditions and contemporary influences, this area is the most modern part of this corner of the world. Ideal as a first stop for your audiovisual project, to familiarize yourself with the country.

Ilulissat Fjord and Disko Bay

The small fishing village of Ilulissat, on the Disko Bay, with its multi-colored houses, is one of the most tourist destinations in Greenland. It is located at the mouth of the Icefjord, a glacier that produces more than 20 billion tons of ice each year in the form of icebergs that you can capture in your photographic shooting or audiovisual production. .

The landscape is apocalyptic, according to the time of year; with a bay full of gigantic icebergs that change location and shape almost every hour. Until late into the summer the bay is inaccessible by boat. Disko Bay lies 300 km above the Arctic Circle, and has the island of Disko at the north and the city of Ilulissat to the south. And in between, a continuous spectacle of fjords and icebergs.

Qaleragdlit Glacier

This is one of the few points on the south coast through which you can access the interior of the island, the great ice plateau of the Inlandsis. It is one of the most spectacular glaciers in the south.

It is near the city of Narsaq, from where you can make trips by inflatable boat. A good way to see the front of the glacier, or to disembark on the coast for hiking on foot through the moraine of the glacier. Undoubtedly you will get some spectacular images for your most icy audiovisual project.
