Igaliku in South Greenland is about as touristy as it gets here, which means the permanent resident population of about 20 is maybe quadrupled on any summer's day. But the wide open spaces ensure it's still quiet and peaceful, and the setting by the fjord with the surrounding mountains is stunning. ⠀ ⠀ This is Igaliku's harbour, and the red building with white windows and door near the dock is the local supermarket, open for only a couple of hours each day. ⠀ ⠀ It's a very isolated spot, and yet, I could totally imagine myself living here for a while. Couldn't you?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #greenland #kalaallitnunaat #southgreenland #sydgrnland #igaliku #fjord #goldenhour #eveninglight #harbour #supermarket #greenlandtravel #visitgreenland #greenlandpioneer #exploregreenland #grnland #ilovegreenland #arctic #guidetogreenland #solotravel #slowtravel #beautyiseverywhere #travelmore #theartoftravel #seetheworld

This is Jakob Martin. He’s the father of my sister from another mister (Esther. Previous photo). He’s born in Ilulissat and works there now. A couple of years back I met him at the airport in Kangerlussuaq, where he worked then. We said hello and he asked when my flight was and said he would be back. Just when I was in the line for the boarding of the plane he came back with a present and said it was for his daughter number two (that was before he actually had a second daughter). It was a little figure of a greenlandic girl and whenever I see it, it reminds me of the pleasant little moments in our lives, where people let you know what you mean to them, even though you didn’t know. I was happy to see Jakob Martin in Ilulissat, and this time he brought another gift. He found out I had sprained my ankle, so he had gone out and bought some ankle creme (for sports injuries). In return I took his photo and sent it to Esther. I’m grateful for the people around me ❤️

The word vast doesn’t begin to describe Greenland. This is the most barren and beautiful place I’ve ever seen! There is a world of secrets and mysteries here frozen in the ice. Secrets like the ones lost in the stars or hidden in the deepest depths of the ocean. Greenlands vastness hide mysteries that we may never discover. Isn’t that a wild thought!! Thankyou @visitgreenland for peaking my curiosity. #greenlandpioneer #visitgreenland

In the wise words of Ali descending into Nuuk: “holy shit balls.” Photos barely do it justice. This land has a hold on my heart like no other. Until next time, Greenland 💚 @visitgreenland #greenlandpioneer

Spotting any wildlife during a guided hike or on a zodiac cruise with #quarkexpeditions is always a highlight. In the NE Greenland National Park Wildlife is since several decades protected by law. These special specie of an arctic hare is not changing its fur during summer and remains white throughout the year. During winter they then finally blend in and become masters of camouflage. #travelwithquark #greenland #greenlandpioneer #greenlandtravel #greenland🇬🇱 #colorfulgreenland #guidetogreenland #visitgreenland #nature #bunny #bunnies🐰 #explorenature #incredibleworld #wetbunny #hiddengems #tamron #canon #canon5dmarkiv #telelens @quarkexpeditions @tamron_deutschland @visitgreenland

This is Esther. Esther is my sister from another mister. I met her in second grade, but I remember spotting her in Narsarsuaq airport, maybe a year before, she started in our class. Like a sister, she can be annoying but like a sister, I love her forever. She just gave birth to Hector (I wanted him named Joseph, because duh). It’s her first baby and she’s doing a great job and it’s good to hear and meet someone who goes “I wouldn’t mind getting another one soon”, because most mothers go “I’ll never have another kid”. Mainly because personally I dream about getting more than one kid. Anyway. This is Esther ❤️

Today our autumn sailing holiday kicks off 🛥🍂✨💃🏽 We’ve got one week and a fantastic new boat to christen, so the destination is EVERYWHERE in South Greenland 🇬🇱❤️ First stop: into Tunulliarfik Fjord with a little walk around Qassiarsuk in the rain/snow. Here there are Viking & Inuit ruins, reconstructions of old Norse buildings, a small local museum, modern day sheep farms with guesthouses, a rocky beach to look for small stones, a summertime cafe, a year-round grocery store and interesting rock formations hinting that this exact place was once underwater! #sailingstaycation2019 #qiioqe @arcticwindow #holiday #southgreenland #explorersbynature #greenland #kalaallitnunaat #greenlandpioneer #sailing #thalassophile #qassiarsuk #UNESCO #UNESCOworldheritage #farmcountry #sheepfarm #lifeatthetopoftheworld #tunulliarfik #fjord #fjordlife #lifebythesea

- Land of snow and ice - That's what's typical Greenland. Snow covered mountains and pack ice on the sea. Even in this cold and desolate seaming wasteland you can find some terrestrial life.

This is Aviaaja. I posted on Facebook if anyone wanted to model for me, so I could learn how to use my camera and my new lens, and she said she needed pictures of her daughter. I thought awesome! Her daughter is like.. 5, we’ll take some in the nature, It will be awesome. I meet up with her and she has the tiniest baby (I totally forgot she had been pregnant 😅) and I was like. Ok, ok, I can work with that, but instead I just ended up taking tons of pictures of her, because her and Natuk (her friend) has such amazing smiles. (Also took of baby). Also, even though I don’t know Avi thaaaat well, I realized she’s the sweetest young woman ever. And I didn’t realize till now. Imagine all those years we kinda knew each other where we could have hung out. Oh well, better late than never! ❤️

Whales to Greenland is like koalas to Australia. While it was always an impressive sight seeing their flukes emerge and slap the waters mercilessly in Qasigiannuit and Ilulissat, I was even more excited when I saw a humpback whale's head emerge only for the second time in the two weeks I was there. This happened moments before the fog rolled in. Humpback whales and the seagulls share a symbiotic relationship. In this photo, the seagulls surrounded the humpback after it used its blowhole to send tons of fish up near the surface of the water for consumption, benefitting the seagulls which got to feast on the fish in the process. The gathering of seagulls above water also served as a very accurate indicator for the existence of whales most of the time! 3rd sharing @sonysingapore #SonyJ2G #SonyA7iii #Greenland #greenlandpioneer #grnland #visitgreenland #travelphotography #Ilulissat #Qasigiannguit

The Greenland Ice Sheet ❄️ 69°03'07.3"N 45°33'37.8"W It’s always been there, sitting on world maps as a giant white space, I’d even read time and time again that it covers over 1.7million square kilometres. Nothing though could have prepared me for that first glimpse from above. As the white carpet of patterns, meltwater pools and frozen beauty revealed itself suddenly everything I’d researched about climate change made so much sense. The melting rate of polar regions will have a global impact and this ice sheet is at the forefront of scientific research... #thephotographicforecast

As many of you know I’m currently in Qaqortoq, the Amalie coast of Greenland. It’s such a charming (and very hilly!) town. I arrived Monday, and today Thursday I already met a new friend (and yesterday I met an old one 😆). This picture was taken at 19.07 (07.07 pm) it’s the moon rising. Let’s see how it’s gonna be in just a month!

This is Ella. Ella is basically the face of Greenland. She has modeled a lot and you’ll see her face everywhere - with good reason. Look at her. She’s holding her twin sons and visiting her showed me what a power mom she is. We used to work together and she was always busy - so busy she would eat her lunch while walking around 😆 Sharing this makes me think about all the awesome greenlandic women. All women with “bones in their nose” (translated: strong willed and cool) that I know. I’m proud of knowing so many awesome women that I all look up to! 😍
