Sailing Around Greenland
Our featured video begins to immersively pull you into the chill that awaits an icy experience in Greenland. The breath and splash from a whale awakes you before a tapestry of ice sculptures captured from the deck of a sailboat and a Mavic Pro Drone hovering from above. In the distance nature awakes you once more as an ice calving drops new ice flows into frigid water before your eyes with sounds of power and fury. The drone captures the amazing contrast of the red sails against the chilling deep blue seas and towering icebergs that could shift at anytime. Turquoise blues break up the dark blues near the icebergs as light interacts with the compressed ice crystal that once again shows us that mother nature is the most amazing painter.
Feet dry as our producer explores the shores of Greenland where colorful structures protect humans from the chilling environment. Greenland is an island dominated by a tapestry of precambrian shield rocks where the ice and seasonal snow have retreated, beautifully captured in this video. An experience in Greenland would not be real without an interaction with their dogs. The young pup featured in the film will tug at your heart but his future will probably be anything but a lap dog for a family. Capturing the culture, people and environment from land and sea, the experience documented in this film is a travel adventurer's dream. As we say at SomedayTrips we are here for the dreamers and those looking to plan experiences around the world. This is worth more than one look and perfect for taking a 3-minute break in your daily life to a far away land that, while chilly, will warm your heart with the beauty of our planet.

Video Producer Comments
Sailing through midnight sun in Greenland, a dream becomes a reality. In July I visited Greenland for the first time. With our small sailing boat we discovered the icefjords around Ilulissat and captured amazing photos and videos every night. Grab some warm clothes and enjoy my latest work "The Beauty of Greenland". Thanks to Daniel Kordan and Iurie Belegurschi for that great experience while our midsummer photo tour through Western Greenland (iceland-photo-tours.com/midnight-sun-in-greenland-photo-workshop).
