Greenland in Photos: Puppies, and Swimming with Icbergs

Hi Everyone,

We had a great trip to Greenland this summer. This second part of my trip report has photos from touring around the villages and towns in Greenland. We visited Ilulissat (known as Jakobshavn in Danish), Oqaatsut, and Disko Island. The puppies were cute, the houses colorful, and the kids crazy enough to swim in Disko Bay.


The trip was about 10 days, with much of the time spent around Ilulissat. We did a lot of (highly expensive!) excursions since we knew this would probably be our only trip there. We took a sight-seeing flight, kayaked between the icebergs at midnight, and did some hiking.

The first part of the trip report, with spectacular aerial photos of icebergs and glaciers, was posted on this forum a couple of weeks ago:


You can find a lot of details about the trip in the first report, especially in the comments section.

More photo galleries of Greenland coming soon, including one on kayaking, one on animals, and one on just icebergs at sunset.

Hope you enjoy!

PS - Thanks to everyone for all the compliments and kind comments on my last report!

PPS - Unfortunately, Fodor's does not have a tag for Greenland at all, so I'm using Iceland as the tag for this one. Really they are completely different. The traditional way of life is still very common in Greenland, while Iceland is completely modernized. .

Greenland is Danish, you could have used the Denmark tag.

What equipment for the pics?

Hi BigRuss,

I had just picked up the Sony a7R II. After using Canon my whole life, it's quite an adjustment to the new controls. Liking the results so far. Liking the lighter weight and smaller size too.
