I have just one spot remaining for my 12 day Ultimate Iceland Highlands Photo Tour for 2017. If you have been sitting on the fence thinking about coming along, sit no longer, there is only one place left. The tour begins and ends in Reykjavik Iceland, and is fully comprehensive with no hidden extras. Dates for Iceland are August 26th – September 7th 2017, which follows on directly from my 8 dayGreenland Sailing adventure. Click the link above to see all the details.
Greenland Sailing Photo Adventure.
I still have a couple of places on my 8 day Greenland Sailing Photo Adventure, and the best thing is that you can do both the Iceland Tour and the Greenland tour together. You even get a discount for going on both. My Greenland sailing tour also leaves from Reykjavik in Iceland, where we have a charter flight to East Greenland to board our ship, the beautiful Donna Wood, a lovingly restored 100 year old Schooner. We spend 8 days sailing around in the incredible Scoresby Sound, the biggest Fjord system in the world, seeing and photographing some of the most spectacular landscape on Earth before flying back to Reykjavik in Iceland again just in time to begin the 12 Ultimate Iceland Highlands tour. Scoresby Sound in East Greenland is very calm, so seasickness is not an issue. We fly to Greenland, so there are no open ocean crossing to be made by boat and we maximise our time in Scoresby Sound.

Another image from the Southern Highlands of Iceland with a tiny person in the landscape. This one is very tiny, but wearing a bright red jacket, once you notice it the sheer scale of the landscape snaps into perspective. This image translates better into a substantial sized print where the person is a little more visible, but thats a little hard to show on the internet.
Iceland Highlands Adventure update.
My Iceland Photo tour 2017 was officially fully booked, and that’s what I was writing in this blog post. As of last night though, I have 3 places that have become available due to cancellations. So if you were considering coming with me to Iceland this year you were almost too late, but now you have another chance.

Greenland Sailing Photo Tour.
I still have a 4 places left for my Greenland Sailing Photo Adventure Tour. 8 days of awesome iceberg scenery sailing around Scoresby Sound on our 100 year old classic Schooner. Fully refurbished with all the modern conveniences of course.
Scoresby sound in South East Greenland is the largest Fjord complex on Earth, it is also the least populated and has one of the most isolated communities on Earth…. Interesting stats, but the best bits are that it is completely unique and amazingly beautiful. Seeing Scoresby Sound by boat during the brief far Northern hemisphere summer is definitely one of the highlights of my career so far. To sail around surrounded by sheer rock walls hundreds of metres high in fjords that are hundreds of metres deep (I spent some time time watching the depth sounder on the boat completely awed), while massive ice sculptures that dwarfed the boat floated serenely past is truly something to behold.

Last year I went to Greenland’s Scoresby Sound for the first time… and it’s taken me this long to write about it. I think I am about 18 months behind in my processing right now, which has got to be some kind of record. I used to complain about being stuck in the gallery all the time without any time to actually get out shooting, now I have the opposite problem, I shoot so much I don’t seem to have the time to process at all! For example, I am writing this from a hotel (a rare night in a hotel to dry out the swag) while touring around Tasmania… More on this later.
