Welcome to an amazing Arctic adventure

Seeing an iceberg up close is an intense experience, with its majesty
and beauty right before you. Yet, when you consider that 80 to 90% of
its entire size is actually beneath the water surface, that’s when the
enormity of the white colossus hits you.

Every iceberg is different. Blue ice often leads to the most
interesting structures being formed. Yet, as massive as they are, they
are impermanent. Depending on the atmospheric temperatures, parts of
the iceberg may break off, and the entire structure may capsize.

The original inhabitants of Greenland, the Inuit, have a special
understanding of the ice that surrounds them. Thus, they are the best
people to be the boat leaders and consultants for our diving
expeditions to the Arctic.

Of course, as you look around you, it is obvious that Greenland isn’t
just about icebergs. Add in the gigantic landscapes, native wildlife,
traditional culture and friendly people – and the fact that it is
practically at the end of the inhabited world – and what you get is a
unique experience not found anywhere else.

A wonderland underwater

Beneath the chilly waters, a wonderland full of diverse animal and
plant life awaits the underwater photographer. There are walls that are
practically covered with kelp and coral, presenting an ideal habitat
for sea slugs, shrimp and other marine life. A heaven for macro
photography enthusiasts.

For photographers and divers who prefer adventure at the other end of
the spectrum, there are fantastic motives made out of ice.

Here, the
interplay of light and colour amidst the massive ice sculptures, are
bound to enthral you with enchanting and unique impressions and imagery
on every dive.

Cold water specialist and dive operator Northern Explorers in Norway
